Telangana plans tourist accommodation inside a jail
August 9 (TravelAndy): India’s youngest state Telangana is all set launch jail tourism in its Sanga Reddy heritage jail and museum, said reports.
This is going to be an innovative thing, where visitors will be able to rent a cell inside the 219 years old heritage jail, for accommodation. Moreover, tourists accommodating in the prison will be served the same food, which is served to the prison inmates.
Additionally, the tourists will follow the same schedule followed by prisoners, during their stay. This will give them the real feel of staying in a jail.
Named as ‘Feel the jail’, this initiative might interest tourists who love experimenting and exploring new way of life.
“The programme is expected to take off soon. There are also plans to develop an amusement park in the jail museum so that tourists would have a comfortable stay here,” said VK Singh, Director General of Telangana state prisons.
