Survey started to erect memorial for Dr. Kalam at Rameswaram

Aug 13, 2015 08:00 IST

Preliminary survey of the place (1.84 acres of land) where the mortal remains of former President Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam had been laid to rest at Rameswaram was started by a team of officials from the Central Public Works Department (CPWD) and Tamil Nadu government on 12 August 2015.

This decision to set up a memorial for Dr. Kalam follows the demand from many quarters to erect a memorial at the site. The memorial to highlight what Kalam had exemplified in his lifetime would comprise a library, museum and a meditation centre.

Dr Kalam expired on 27 July 2015 at Shillong and was laid to rest at Peikarumbu in Rameswaram on 30 July 2015.
