No headway in WMC push for Bhadrakali-Padmakshi ropeway

Hyderabad: Telangana government’s plan to construct a ropeway between two famous temples -- Bhadrakali and Padmakshi – under Warangal Municipal Corporation limits hangs in balance as local civic authority has claimed that it forwarded the project report to the government, whereas the state municipal authorities maintained that no such report was received so far. 
     
The Greater Warangal Smart City Corporation Limited sent a proposal to the Municipal Administration department for a ropeway connecting the Bhadrakali temple and Padmakshi temple. 

The idea was to provide a special facility to temple-bound tourists visiting Warangal. The distance between Bhadrakali temple and Padmakshi temple is about 3 km via road and in between lies a lake. 

The ropeway reduces the distance to 1.7 km. The authorities proposed to have a ropeway between these two temples as it would increase the tourist footfall. 

They have allocated Rs 3 crore for the plan under the Smart City project of the Central government.  

Apart from the ropeway, the authorities have proposed to have a heritage museum at Padmakshi temple.
