Chandupatla to be Made Tourist Spot
CM KCR said that an old stone inscription found in the village suggests that Rani Rudrama Devi was killed in a battle by Kayastha Ambadevudu in the same village. Also, a statue of Rudrama devi was found in the village, he added.
“However, due to the discrimination of Andhra rulers, the historical facts and the importance of the village did not come to light. The village tank too was left undeveloped,” he said.
Promising to make the village a tourist spot, Rao said the government would install a statue of Rudrama Devi and also conduct Kakatiya Utsavalu in the village. Spread in an area of 102 acres, the Pedda Cheruvu is being revived by the government and for this, an amount of Rs 55 lakh was already sanctioned.
