The Aravind Eye Care System has come forward to construct a mega eye hospital in this temple town at a cost of Rs 100 crore for the benefit of pilgrims, 10,000-strong staff of TTD and local public, said TTD Board Chairman Chadalavada Krishnamurthy.

TTD would collect Rs seven lakh as annual rental charge for the land to be allotted to the eye hospital here, he said.

The Aravind Eye Care Hospitals, a World Health Organization collaborating centre for prevention of blindness, runs eye hospitals in 10 locations in Tamil Nadu.

The hospitals were named after spiritual leader Sri Aurobindo.

The TTD Board also decided to construct a Lord Venkateswara temple and also a shrine of Lord Maha Ganapathi at Banajara Hills in Hyderabad at a total cost of Rs.13.89 crore, Krishnamurthy said.
