Warangal: Folk, as well as classical Kuchipudi dances performed at the UNSECO heritage site Ramappa temple at Palampet of Mulugu district, delighted tourists on Sunday. A day ahead of World Tourism Day, the district administration conducted a Heritage Walk and other programmes at the famous temple.
Dance performances by the disciples of Tanduru Renuku were a feast to the eyes of the visitors. Sub-Registrar Taslima Mohammad, Palampeta Village sarpanch Rajita, Ramappa Temple Executive Officer (EO) and other officials participated in the event. District Tourism Officer, erstwhile Warangal, Shivaji coordinated the programme, while Venkatapur SI Ramesh looked after the security arrangements.
Shivaji said that the number of tourists has increased many folds since UNESCO conferred the World Heritage Site tag to the Ramappa temple in July this year. “This 800-year-old Kakatiya era Ramappa Temple is going to attract many more tourists in the future. Both the State and Central governments are chalking out plans to develop facilities for the international tourists,” he added.
According to the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) officials, six trained security guards have already been deployed at the temple for security besides urging the State government to step up police protection to all archaeological sites. The ASI is going to beef up security by deploying more armed guards and by setting up increased surveillance of the area with CCTV cameras.
