VANDIYUR LAKE (Madurai)

Plan in Paper for years
Recreational facility with Boating, Island and Restaurants proposed long back.

EXPECTED

for Vandiyur lake

Already We have Walkers club, Skating ground and a mini Indoorstadium here.  If the proposed model is implemented, Vandiyur lake will serve as a great Entertainment spot for Madurai people and Tourists.

• Facilities expected :
* Boating

* Beautification of existing Park, * Island creation with restaurants and * A Swimming Pool for Children.  Water in this lake is present almost throughout the year, and If Govt. is serious in implementing things for Vandiyur lake, Sure it will be a favourite spot for Madurai people.

AZHAGAR-KOIL (Madurai)

Zoological Park at Azhagar koil
 It’s a beautiful Green-cover area of Ghats, with dense Forests full of herbal medicines.  A Zoological Park, long-term demand of Maduraites can be made viable here, as this environment is eco-friendly for animals too. • Already Azhagar-Koil is a well known pilgrim place in Madurai with famous Kallalagar temple, 18-steps Karuppanasamy temple and Pazhamudhircholai – one among 6 abodes of Lord Muruga. It’s in much vicinity for People of Madurai, also to People from adjacent Dindigul and Pudukottai districts.

THENKAAL LAKE (Madurai)
• A wide-spread Lake with water for almost, throughout the year, in Tiruparankundram, a part of Madurai city.

Madurai Thenkaal as Hyderabad’s Hussain Sagar
• This Lake can be developed on the lines of Hyderabad’s HUSSAIN-SAGAR Lake by creating Mini-Amusement Parks in PPP model, Boating, Restaurants, Walking tracks around the lake, a Skating-track for Children, Mini Indoor-stadium, a Library and a Swimming Pool.

• If a statue of Lord Murugan / Meenakshi amman / big FISH to represent Madurai Pandiya dynasty..[Please no options for any kind of leaders’ statues here..:(..] is created at the center of the lake, as in Hussain sagar, It will serve as an another identity for Madurai.

If such-an entertainement hub is created at this lake, sure it will be a heaven for Madurai people and our tourists. It will also replace our feelings for a Beach environment.

NAGAMALAI (Madurai)

Nagamalai…. As the name suggests..
 As the name suggests, this green-cover ghats in Madurai is more blended with the Snakes.

• Expectations :
 A Reptile Park for Snakes & other possible reptiles like Crocodiles etc. can be created at this place to make it an entertainment spot for Madurai.

SCIENCE PLANETARIUM
• It’s also a long-term demand for Maduraites to have an exclusive Science Planetarium in Madurai. • Facilities here can be created on the lines of Bangalore’s Vishwesvaraya museum, One-such kind will cater to the need of whole TN as we in whole lack one such museum.

ART & CRAFTS MUSEUM
 Though it is proposed to come-up in Tirumalai nayak Palace premises, We feel better if it also comes in the site of :  Yanaimalai  Keezhakuyilkudi Samanar caves  Tenparankundram Rock-cut cave temple.

• So that It will be an added attraction, adding promotion to these spots.

Kudlaadampatti water Falls
• Kudlaadampatti water-Falls need more attention from the Govt. as the facilities are not upto mark and the picnic-spot is currently invaded by the anti-social elements.

Vaigai Dam & Park
• Boating can be arranged as an added-attraction for Vaigai dam and the Parks need to be re-structured and beautified with colourful cramptons to attract more tourists.

Kodaikanal
 More TNSTC buses should be made available b/w Madurai and Kodaikanal directly. Currently, the no. of buses plying b/w Madurai and Kodai are very less.  TTDC must introduce One-day tours b/w Madurai & Kodai.

PERMANENT TRADE CENTER at Madurai
 A Permanent trade center at Madurai is also a long term demand for us.  Now-a-days, the only Tamukkam grounds is engaged all the 365 days, as Madurai got exposed to new fairs like Food

festival, Book festival, Crafts festival, Home expo fair, trade fair, Healthcare fair, printing industry fair, automobiles fair etc apart from its Chithirai exhibition.

• As EXHIBITION/FAIR stands to be an alternate entertainment option for people in Madurai, It will be better If Govt. comes up with a solid plan for Madurai Trade center, exclusively to host exhibitions.

International Cricket Stadium at Madurai

The Game Changer…
• Tamilnadu Cricket Control Board should build an International Cricket Stadium at Madurai which will be a Vibrant for both domestic and International tourism during the sports season. • With Madurai having an International Airport, and being a well-known tourist destination, this move will boost-up the tourism, not only in Madurai but in entire Southern Tamilnadu region.

ECO Parks at tourist spots
• More Green-cover is expected in & around Madurai, wherever possible, starting from Small parks every wards to ECO Parks every tourist place.  ECO Parks expected in :
