Rural tourism cluster planned to showcase Chettinad

A rural tourism cluster showcasing the culture and heritage of Chettinad, projects to improve infrastructural facilities in temple towns and introduction of open-deck buses in major tourist cities are some of the important decisions taken by the govt. to promote tourism. Prominent among the places that found space in announcements made in the Assembly by Tourism Minister S. Gokula Indira were Sriperumbudur (birthplace of Sri Ramanuja and the abode of Adhikesava Perumal Temple); Azhagar Koil (houses a noted Murugan shrine and also Sundararaja Perumal Temple), Tiruchendur and Tiruttani, popular Murugan Shrines. All these towns will get a facelift apart from a number of basic amenities at a cost of  

 5 crore each.
