Mahbubnagar: Mayuri Nursery, located about 5 kilometers from National Highway 44 at Jadcherla and about 8 kilometers from the Mahbubnagar district headquarters, is fast gearing up to become one of the most sought after tourists spots in the district with world-class amenities like an amphitheatre, swimming pools and a yoga centre.
The State government has earmarked 200 hectares of land for the development of various facilities, such as play grounds, gardens, and play facilities for children, a yoga center and a medicinal plantation garden. “Apart from these facilities, we also propose to add an amphitheater (open air theatre), swimming pool, a volleyball court and a basket ball court.
The play facilities have already been installed and works on the entranceway are on the verge of completion. We expect the works to be completed by December” said Mahabubnagar MLA Srinivas Goud while taking stock of the development at Mayuri Nursery.
Currently, more than Rs. 2 crore is being spent on the development works. Over 12 acres of land has already been cleared and levelled and converted into play areas with the necessary equipment and infrastructure.
“Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao is positive about the project and we shall provide all kinds of support from the forest department. More than 2500 hectares of forest land is available out which 200 hectares has been earmarked for Mayuri Nursery for developing it into an urban, eco -tourism hub.
Our target is to plant 256 crore plantations this year and we shall begin the plantation exercise from 15th June, 2016 and make the entire district a green hub” said P.K. Sharma, Principal Chief Conservator of Forests in Telangana.
He further added, “Ideally, every district should have 33 per cent of green cover, where as Mahabubnagar as of now is having about 22 per cent of forest land. With more plantations under the ‘Telanganaku Haritha Haaram’ programme, the government is planning to reach its target by the end of this year.
