Jaleel, in a forum like this accessible by all, there is no need for revealing the identity of person. Everything goes by the 'username'.

BTW there is a point in what he said, we have to give 'courtesy' or 'copy rights' to the owner or the source. Even then, those images with 'fully restricted rights' need to be avoided. Better to ask permission of the photographer before posting any picture.

Yesterday Jan (Administrator) had got a mail from a photographer that some of his copy righted pics were being used without permission or reference in one of the cityscape threads. He had entered in to a contract with some company for his photos. I had to spend some 45 minutes finding and deleting all those photos.

Padmanabhapuram Palace

Padmanabhapuram Palace

A magnificent wooden palace of the 16th century, Padmanabhapuram Palace lies at the land's end of mainland India. An enticing piece to any lover of art and architecture this old palace of the kings of the erstwhile Travancore (1550 to 1750 AD) is a fine specimen of Kerala's indigenous style of architecture. Charles Correa, India architect par excellence selected as one among the top ten architects of the world by the British Institute of architects, says that it is his most favorite building. He has incorporated many ideas from this building, in his architectural style.

Padmanabhapuram fort encloses an area of around 200 acres. The strong fort walls rise to a height of 30 ft. the foundation of which is constructed in granite and the superstructure in red stone. The grand palace stands at the centre of the fort. The palace buildings lie sprawled over an area of 6.5 acres.The antique interiors are replete with intricate rosewood carvings and sculptured decor. The palace also contains 17th and 18th century murals.

One can see: the musical bow in mahogany, windows with coloured mica, royal chairs with Chinese carvings, 'Thaikkottaram' or the Queen Mother's palace with painted ceilings, rose wood and teak carved ceilings with 90 different floral designs.

Durbar Hall with a shiny black floor specially made from a combination of egg white, jaggery lime, burnt coconut, charcoal and river sand, granite tubs to cool curd and buttermilk, secret underground passages, the King's bedroom with a four poster medicinal bed, mural paintings, pictures of Lord Krishna, hanging brass lanterns lit continuously since the 18th century, hanging cage through which eagles tore criminals to death, open air swimming bath, the King's sister's dressing room, granite dance hall, Saraswathi (goddess of knowledge) temple, large earthen urns, room for scribes and accountants, carved figures on columns holding oil lamps, pooja (worship) rooms with jackfruit tree columns, fish carvings on the ceilings, enormous teak beams, Belgian mirrors and an outer cyclopean stone wall fitted together without mortar.

The visitor is often overwhelmed by the royal splendour. Though the palace is situated in Kanyakumari district of Tamilnadu State, it comes under the purview of the Government of Kerala's administration.

The view from "Vattakkottai" is panoramic. It has found place in a number of films.

You can enjoy the beauty of the 'Bay of Bengal' and the tip of the Indian Peninsula from this lovely Fort.

During my college days (1986), I had walked the entire distance of 6 or 8 km? from Kanya Kumari to Vattakkottai through the sandy beaches. It was a great experience. There was an All India National Integration Camp as organsied by the National Service Scheme at the Vivekananda Kendra. My fellow walkers included students of different universities from Kashmir to Kanya Kumari.


A Kanya Kumari visitor always makes it a point to visit the "Vattakkottai" and the adjacent "Uppalam", where common salt is derived out of sea water.

Advisory report on Colachel Port soon

The Malaysian government has prepared the final development and financial report on the implementation of the proposed Colachel Port project in Tamil Nadu. The report would be submitted to the Indian government soon. The project, which is estimated to cost Rs 2,500 crore, will be executed by a consortium of Malaysian companies.

Under the development proposal, Colachel Port would initially handle the shipment and transshipment of 1 million TEUs (twenty foot equivalent unit) which would eventually go up to 7.6 million TEUs annually. The Malaysian government has indicated its willingness to go ahead with the first phase of the project once it receives a formal consent from the Indian government. The project would be undertaken on BOT basis with a contractual period of 25 years.

The government had signed a MoU for developing the Colachel Port, near Chennai, with the Tamil Nadu government last year.

Chennai, April 24 : The Tamil Nadu government will request the Union government to develop Colachel as a major international container transhipment hub port, 'since this project requires huge investment'. It has also sought Central support for preparing a detailed feasibility report. Sethusamudram Corporation Ltd would be the consultant for preparing detailed feasibility and detailed project reports to develop the port, Vellakoil M P Saminathan, minister for highways told the State Assembly on Tuesday.

More Trains to Kerala to pass through Nagercoil Junction

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: With Thiruvananthapuram Central and Ernakulam stations saturated and Kochuveli having limited traffic facilities and passenger amenities, the Railways are thinking of starting more trains running through the State from Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu.

The attempt is to use the spare capacity of the coaching terminal at Tirunelveli, 120 km from Thiruvananthapuram Central, for starting trains running through the State, a senior Railway official said. Three pit lines are available there and the facilities at the coaching terminal are underutilised.

The trains that are to commence operations from Tirunelveli include those to Bilaspur and Kurla in Mumbai. The two trains were announced in the last Railway Budget.

Thiruvananthapuram Central, which is to be upgraded into a world-class station, handles double the sanctioned capacity of trains, the official said.

The official said the Railways were handling four pairs of trains from Kochuveli with just one pit line and two platforms.

The pit line is saturated and new trains cannot be started from Ernakulam, Kochuveli and Thiruvananthapuram Central stations.

The divisional railway authorities have finalised a Rs.250-crore proposal for setting up an operating centre for trains starting from and terminating in the capital city on 12.14 hectares of land owned by the Railways adjacent to the Nemom railway station.

The Railways are planning 10 pit lines to take care of the maintenance of 30 trains; 12 stabling lines; sick lines and quarters for railway personnel at Nemom.

General Manager of Integral Coach Factory, Perambur, M.S. Jayanth, who holds additional charge of the General Manager, Southern Railway, reviewed the second phase development work at the Kochuveli railway terminal.

Under the Rs.36-crore project, the Railways are setting up two stabling lines, two pit lines and three platforms to handle more trains.

Posts: 450 What about joint developement of Vizhinjam and Colachel

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

An old report..but with an interesting message


Quote:
A hub port on the West Coast, close to the international sea route, is essential for India’s industrial and economic development.

Both Colachel and Vizhinjam can serve this purpose, may be with a variance in cost. Hence, from a national perspective, experts feel that instead of competing with each other, TN and Kerala should co-operate and jointly develop India’s star port.

http://www.financialexpress.com/news...h-seas/175610/

GoI, Gok and GoTN should combine the developement of Vizhinjam, Colachel and Kollam and make them under one management... probably named as Travancore sea ports Ltd...

Mp from Kanyakumari has rightly represented and presented fool proof,logically sound, request for an airport to the southenmost part of India
1.Government land to the tune of1000 acres in manakudi without any trees around available very nearto the sea , so that take of and landing through the searoute will fecilitate
2. Australia bound planes will land instead of goingto srilanka,

3. In case of war, it is highly necessary to shield atomic plantat koodankulam

4. the international tourist will prefer to land here

in my opinion we should focus on improving exiting (non existing?) infrastructure. Recently it took me > 2.5 hrs to come form tvm airport to nagercoil , a grand total o 40 miles! in most other places on earth this will be considered simple suburban travel.

nh 47 is hopless, focus should be first paid to developing first class coastal highway form ngl to tvm (of course with minimum environmenal impact) . secondly the other highway (mountain highway should be developed as an alternate too). In fact may be rail is a better idea. The time has come. it should not take a whole day to travel form nagercoil to cochin.

Funds to promote tourism in Kanyakumari

NAGERCOIL: The State Government has allotted a sum of Rs.5 crore for tourism promotion activities in Kanyakumari district.

Collector Rajendra Ratnoo told The Hindu here on Wednesday that 22,827 foreign and 11.74 lakh domestic tourists visited Kanyakumari last year.

The Tiruvalluvar statue has attracted 97,417 students and 16.34 lakh domestic tourists. In order to provide more facilities to attract tourists, the district administration has decided to give a face lift to Kanyakumari. The improvement works, including provision of a pathway to Gandhi Memorial and Kamaraj Memorial on Beach Road, ‘sound and light’ show at Vivekananda Rock Memorial and construction of an anti-sea erosion wall at a cost of Rs.60 lakh.

The Department of Tourism has planned to operate cable car service linking the Vivekananda Rock Memorial and Tiruvalluvar statue.

The cable car service would be established by the Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation at an estimated cost of Rs.16.13 crore to a distance of 1,738 metres.

According to Department of Tourism officials, many works had been undertaken around the Tiruvalluvar statue after its maintenance was handed over to the Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation in 2002.

Works to the tune of Rs.90 lakh were executed in 2007-08 to provide granite flooring around the statue, dressed granite stone handrails and a re-laid pathway.

A sum of Rs. 80 lakh was being spent on providing poly silicon coating for the protection of the statue.

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Railways will commission 33 more Unreserved Ticketing System (UTS) in the Thiruvananthapuram Railway Division. This was announced by Rajiv Dutt Sharma, Divisional Railway Manager.

A crossing station will be introduced at North Panakudi in Nagercoil-Tirunelveli section this financial year. An additional platform and new pilgrim siding will be commissioned at Kanyakumari and a bay platform at Nagercoil station.

The rail electrification work of the Thiruvananthapuram-Kanyakumari section would be taken up shortly, he added.
