The Jammu and Kashmir administration has agreed to allocate 100 acres of land near the Jammu-Katra highway for the construction of Sri Venkatesh Temple by Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD). Speaking to the English newspaper 'The Hindu', MP V. Vijaya Sai Reddy, who is heading the delegation of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam Board, said that along with the temple, a Vedic school and hospital will be built here in the next two years. He also informed us that two sites for the temple have been identified.

Long-awaited Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy, TTD executive officer Anil Kumar Singhal, joint executive officer Basant Kumar and board member J.J. The team, including Sekar, discussed with the Union Territory officials to build temples at Dhumi and Majin in Jammu district.

Reddy said that we also met the Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir and explained the details of our project. He said that pilgrims from many north Indian states visiting Tirumala have long demanded that the replica of the temple be constructed in Jammu.

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy said that funds for the construction of the temple, Vedic school, marriage hall and hospital will be raised from devotees and Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam will also contribute to the extent possible.

He said that Jammu is a peaceful place. Life is perfectly normal and no untoward incident has been reported in the area. We have considered all aspects including security, access to the site, availability of water and transport facilities before finalizing the two sites. The important thing is that the site is located on the highway leading to the Vaishno Devi temple.
