nandgadAn action plan would be prepared for the development of Sangolli and Nandgad, the birth place of the legendary warrior in Rani Channamma’s army, and the place where he was executed by the British. The same would be done by the Sangolli Rayanna Pratisthana.

Pratisthana plans to take up development works at Sangolli of Bailhongal taluk and his memorial in Nandgad of Khanpur taluk. It plans to engage experts in the construction of memorials for freedom fighters and places of historical importance.
8.18 acres surrounding Rayanna’s memorial and another 4 acres adjacent to the Agricultural Produce Marketing Committee premises in Nandgad has been acquired for the purpose.

Edifices portraying the heroic and patriotic deeds of Rayanna would be built at these places to not only inspire the younger generation and inculcate patriotic values in them, but also promote tourism.
