NEW DELHI, Apr 1: The board of the famous Tirupati temple will be allocated land in Jammu for building up a temple and pilgrims’ amenities complex in the region which receive very large number of visitors as being the gateway to Mata Vaishno Devi temple and Amarnath shrine.

The Administrative Council (AC), which met under the chairmanship of Jammu and Kashmir’s lieutenant governor (L-G) Manoj Sinha on Thursday, approved the proposal to allot land to the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) for building a temple and allied infrastructure including pilgrims’ amenities complex, Veda Pathshala (Vedas School), spiritual/meditation centre, office, residential quarters and parking.

The land will be given on lease for a period of 40 years. Medical and educational facilities are also proposed to be built on the campus in future.

TTD, a board established by the government under the TTD Act, 1932, is a charitable organisation with activities in the spiritual, cultural, social, and educational sphere. It hopes to tap the religious tourism potential in Jammu, the City of Temples, besides enhancing economic activities in the region. Once developed, the TTD infrastructure will be another religious centre of attraction in the region apart from the famous Mata Vaishno Devi shrine and Amarnathji Shrine, official sources said.
