Orissa to develop Tara Tarini temple as a major religious tourist destination

Berhampur (Orissa), May 2 (PTI) Orissa government has planned to develop Tara Tarini temple, a shakti shrine in the Ganjam district, as a major religious tourist destination.
The decision was taken at a high level-meeting held recently where the state government unfolded plans to develop the spot near Purushottampur, officials said.
While Tara Tarini Development Board (TTDB) has renovated the old hill-top temple, several other peripheral development works including the approach roads, round the clock water supply, community toilets and a 'pantha nivas' were constructed by various departments of the government.
Situated on the banks of river Rushikulya, about 30 km from Berhampur city, the place is visited by lacks of people every year, particularly on all Tuesdays of the Hindu month of Chaitra.
