Bhadrachalam: In an effort to showcase the prominence of Sri Ramayanam and improve the aesthetics of the temple town, the district administration has embarked on a wall painting programme at Bhadrachalam, the abode of Sri Sita Ramachandra Swamy, also known as Dakshin Ayodhya.

The authorities took up the programme as part of the celestial wedding of the Lord Sita Ramachandra Swamy to create a devotional atmosphere when the devotees descend on Bhadragiri hill for Sri Rama Navami and Sri Rama Maha Pattabhishekam, scheduled for April 15 and 16.

The images are being painted on the compound walls of all buildings housing government offices leading to the temple. The administration is on a mission mode to ensure all the walls in the temple town are filled with Ramayana pictures. “The paintings depicting the epic Ramayana are special attraction for this Sri Rama Navami,” sub-collector Rajiv Gandhi Hanumanthu said.

He instructed the gram panchayat officials to ensure that no wall poster of any kind should be visible on the walls of the temple town during the festivity. He further warned of stringent action against those who deface the paintings by putting up posters or banners or flexis.

G Praveen Kumar Reddy, a devotee from Warangal, said: “The administration has come with a good idea showcasing the cultural heritage of the temple. The paintings are not only presenting the greatness of Ramayanam but also improved the aesthetics of the temple town.”
