Sculpture of buffalo and well in Pothundi attract tourists heading to Nelliyampathy
Palakkad: A sculpture of a buffalo and a well with beautifully designed wall around it have been constructed to attract tourists passing through Pothundi. It is located in a garden which is visited by the tourists who travel to Nelliyampathy.
The 20-feet-deep well is located opposite to the forest department check post. The sculpture of the buffalo is situated right next to the well. The well was constructed using granite stones. The beautifully designed wall around the well made it more attractive.
The well was constructed with the intention of providing drinking water to the travelers visiting the garden. The water will be distributed through a pipe connected to a water tank. This tank will be filled with water from the well after setting up a motor. There will also be arrangements made to fetch the water directly from the well.
The sculpture of the buffalo was created by sculptor Rajan. The sculpture is 5.6 feet tall and 2.6 feet long. The entire construction work was completed in 111 working days by including it in the employment guarantee scheme. It was completed at a budget of Rs 2,66,819.
