Lepakshi temple to get facelift with Centre’s ideal monument tag
Anantapur: The Central government has identified three among 135 in Andhra Pradesh as ideal monuments under the Adarsh Smarak Scheme. One among three is Basavanna temple at Lepakshi village in Anantapur district. As part of the scheme, the Centre will give funds for setting up cafeteria, Wi-Fi and providing other amenities for tourists.
The Lepakshi temple which was constructed during Sri Krishnadevaraya's rule is in utter neglect till date. The Centre focused its attention on the temple after Lepakshi tableau was paraded on the Republic Day this year. Devotees are requesting the authorities to improve facilities for attracting more tourists.
