'Mysore-Kodagu will be developed as tourism hubs'

Higher Education and Tourism Minister R V Deshpande said, tourist places in Chamarajanagar, Mandya and Kodagu districts will be developed by creating a tourism hub with Mysore under focus.

He was speaking after inaugurating a Yatri Nivas constructed by the Tourism department at a cost of Rs 3.90 crore at Kanakagiri, in Chamarajanagar taluk, on Sunday. He also took part in Mokshakalyana puja and Mukuta Sapthami puja of Sri Vijaya Parshwanatha Swami. He said, the State government would soon announce a Tourism Policy and would seek financial assistance from the Centre. “The Yatri Nivas will provide accommodation, food and basic facilities for tourists at nominal prices. 

Another facility, which will include a prayer hall, open air theatre, rest rooms, etc, will be provided at a cost of Rs 4 crore. A proposal will be forwarded to the Union government in this regard. 

Tourism will be given priority as it provides employment to numerous persons and also generates revenue for both the people and the government,” he said.
