Kashi Vishwanath Corridor

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is ready to inaugurate his dream project- Kashi Vishwanath Corridor tomorrow in Varanasi.

Narendra Modi will be in the poll-bound state of Uttar Pradesh tomorrow. He will be in his Lok Sabha Constituency of Varanasi where he is all set to inaugurate the much-awaited Kashi Vishwanath Corridor. The corridor is said to be PM Modi’s dream project and has been built on an area of 5,000 hectares.

The newly constructed corridor is about 50 meters and will connect the holy temple of Lord Shiva with the two Ghats on the river Ganga. As per the Uttar Pradesh Government, the project will complement the Purvanchal Development Corridor and “will be a befitting tribute to the cultural and historical aspect of the holy city of Kashi.”  Kashi Vishwanath Corridor is said to be the dream project of Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India and it was him, who, in 2019, laid the foundation of the corridor. Since 2019, about 300 buildings have been brought and demolished by the government to create space for the project. The project is completed in a record time and it is reported to be made on a budget of Rs 600 crores. 

The idea behind the Kashi Vishwanath Corridor, as per the government, was to preserve the rich heritage and culture of the country alongside providing easy pedestrian movement for pilgrims. It will also ease the traffic congestion and will directly connect the main temple with the ghats. The corridor consists of a platform for the people to mediate and is built on an area of 7000 square meters, a cafeteria, a Vedic library, a virtual gallery, and a light system have also been installed.

With Prime Minister Modi inaugurating the corridor tomorrow, it will give a major boost to tourism in Uttar Pradesh, more importantly, in the Eastern Uttar Pradesh region.
