Cultural village to come up near Golconda Fort

Our Bureau


THE Minister for Tourism and Culture, Mr. T. Srinivas Yadav, on Monday laid the foundation stone of a cultural village at Taramati Baradari, near the Golconda Fort, which is to take shape as a prestigious project of the State Tourism Department.

The seven-acre village is expected to turn into a tourist attraction with more than six lakh tourists visiting the Golconda Fort every year. An emporium for display and promotion of quality musical instruments and a library of ancient traditional literature on music and other art forms are some of the highlights of the project.

Estimated to cost Rs 5.5 crore, the project is being funded by the Union Ministry of Tourism, the State Department of Tourism and the South Zone Cultural Centre.
