Varanasi: The work of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream project Kashi Vishwanath Corridor is going on fast. Due to its construction, devotees will get convenience here. The target has been set to complete the construction of the corridor by November.
There is a lot of crowd in Shravan Month
It gathers a lot during the month of Shravan month and other special festivals. Due to which people have to make long queues on the road. Apart from this, traffic has to be restricted by barricading the area up to two kilometres from the temple. This disturbs the devotees as well as the nearby market and shopkeepers.
This time already prepared
Steel railings will be installed in zig-zag styles like the Sai temple of Shirdi and Vaishno Devi temple in Vishwanath Corridor premises to save the devotees from the crowd. Due to which devotees will be able to queue in the temple premises themselves. A red carpet will be laid under the railing and on special occasions, arrangements will be made to protect it from sunlight etc. This will give a lot of relief to the nearby shopkeepers. Along with this, common people will also be able to move with their vehicles.
How much work is done?
According to media reports, work is going on on the Vishwanath Corridor under construction since 2019. First of all, a temple square spread over an area of about 2000 square meters will be prepared. In this complex, the sanctum sanctorum of Vishwanath temple, Tarakeswar Mahadev, Rani Bhavani, Mata Parvati and Annapurna, the places of Lord Vishnu are situated. Baramada and thick walls have been made from the red sandstone of Chunar. Beautiful figures have been carved on the stones in different styles. Now only the marble flooring work of Makrana is left on the premises. Which will be completed before Sawan.
Target to build corridor by November
