Ahmedabad: With a view to promote religious tourism in Gujarat, particularly in Saurashtra region, Gujarat Chief Minister Mr. Vijaybhai Rupani today announced to commence ropeway passenger services for religious tourists at famous Chamunda Temple, located on Chotila Hills, in Surendranagar district.
This announcement was made by the Chief Minister on the last day of current budget session of the Gujarat Legislative Assembly in Gandhinagar.
The Chief Minister in his statement further added that to enhance the amenities for the tourists visiting religious places in Gujarat; the state government has undertaken several developmental projects at various religious places across the state.
Earlier, Gujarat Government had initiated ropeway passenger services at three other famous religious places – Adhyashakti Peeth at Ambaji, Mahakaali Dham at Pavagadh and Girnar Ropeway, which is Asia’s biggest ropeway and dedicated to the people by Prime Minister Mr. Narendrabhai Modi, recently.
Mr. Rupani further stated that the state government has already appointed an agency for constructing the ropeway at Chamunda Dham, Chotila. The construction works for this ropeway would begin shortly.
When the construction works of the proposed ropeway would be finished, making visit to the Chamunda Mataji temple for darshan would be much more easy and comfortable for elderly people, children, and others. This would not only save time and efforts but would also generate employment and commercial opportunities for the locals.
