Mathura 2016.05.31 (VT): Shri Krishna Janmasthan and surrounding areas are all set to get a heritage look soon. The BJP-led Central Government has approved the detailed project report (DPR) and funds worth 13.88 crore rupees on Monday for the project.
The Narendra Modi-led Central Government had planned to develop a dozen cities across India as heritage cities, which includes the holy city of Mathura-Vrindavan. Concerned authorities have been busy preparing a blueprint for the project which was approved by the Government on Monday.
The DPR mentions that the birth place of Shri Krishna and all the surrounding areas will be developed as a heritage city. The main road leading to the Janma Bhoomi will be developed as a corridor with a huge and ancient-looking entry gate showcasing the past-times of the Lord.
The roads connecting to the birthplace will also be renovated and entry of vehicles stopped at the main road itself. A green passage is also proposed to create a soothing effect on the devotees visiting the place.
The DPR also mentions that nearby shops will be renovated in a uniform way to support the heritage look of the birth place.
The City administration said that after this project, they will work on the DPR of Dwarikadhish temple and Vishram Ghat for their renovation. It is expected that these DPRs will cost a further 12 crore rupees to get the sought-after heritage look.
The meeting for this project had DM Rajesh Kumar, CDO Manish Kumar Verma, MVDA from AE Amit Kadiyan presenting the proposal to the Central Government.
