The History of Jalumuru

Unemployment is very high in this area. Government has to take required measures to create more jobs for the local youth and stop the migration. Housing is a big problem in this area so at least the present Government has to allocate some Government lands for house constructions. Srimukhalingam temple is a famous temple that is present in this Jalumuru area and devotees from different parts of the world reach here. So the present Government should take all the required measures in developing this prominent spiritual center. A tourism network should be set up along with the sights in the district.
