With Tirupati and Vaishno Devi shrines attracting devotees in increasingly large numbers, the Jharkhand government plans to develop Chhinnamastika temple in state’s Ramgarh district pretty much the same way.
Chief Minister Raghubar Das, during a review meeting yesterday, asked the district administration and other government officials to ensure that hygienically prepared food was served to the devotees two times a day at a fixed rate.
This is much on the lines of what happens in the Tirupati temple in the southern state of Andhra.
Exhorting officials to visit the temple with families, Das also said the temple in Rajrappa area of the district should also have a cloakroom and a queue complex modeled on the lines of Vaishno Devi temple in Katra area of Jammu and Kashmir, the statement said.
The CM asked the Ramgarh administration officials to remove stalls lined outside the temple and build a shopping complex on the premises to accommodate the vendors.
Chhinnamastika temple is one of the state’s six destinations, which is being developed as a global tourist spot by the Jharkhand government.
The state has approved a grant of Rs 200 crore for the Rajrappa project, it added.>
