Narayanpets modern, revamped crematorium offers dignity to the dead

Vaikunta Dhamam is a modern crematorium that is an integral part of Telangana government's Pattana Pragati (urban development program) and Palle Pragati (village development program) initiatives. "Many crematoriums do not have basic facilities. This crematorium is created with all amenities to serve the needs for the people who accompany the dead," says Harichandana, the Narayanpet district collector. The crematorium was revamped at a cost of Rs 1.2 crores and is spread on eight acres. Keeping in mind the safety of the people, it is located 3 km away from the main town of Kosgi. The entrance is a big, dark grey arch-like structure with carvings. It would perhaps be difficult for people to believe that the arch is not the entrance to a temple but a modern crematorium. The entire property is equipped with a solar facility for sustainable power.
