DEOGARH: THE erstwhile capital of Bamanda estate, Deogarh, that has a glorious cultural heritage and literary tradition finally got a place on the tourism map of the State.

Bamanda which has to its credit the first ever printing press, hydro power project and telephone line under Raja Sudhal Deb, saw Tourism and Culture Minister Debi Prasad Mishra lay a foundation stone of Pradhanpat tourism project.

On the occasion, Mishra said that an estimated budget of `1 crore has been planned for development of the project and `60 lakh allocated in the first phase.


He said the State Government was mooting development of a tourism circuit comprising waterfall at Pradhanpat, Kurdokot, Deojharan in Deogarh besides Khulundi in Pallahara and Gudguda in Sambalpur.

He said development of tourism would boost growth of parallel economy and provide employment opportunities.

In his address, Deogarh MLA Sanjib Pradhan said in the absence of industrialisation, the development of tourism would provide an alternative to take the district ahead.

He also drew the attention of the Minister for renovation of Basant Niwas, the rest house of the erstwhile rulers of Bamanda estate.
