Varanasi (UP), March 4 : The Kashi Vishwanath Dham corridor will have a giant platform that will enable a panoramic view of the Ganga river and the Ghats on one side and the entire corridor area on the other side.
The platform is being referred to as ‘Ganga View Gallery’ in the project.
The addition of the new feature has been possible after the dilapidated buildings purchased recently were razed. The huge space created by the demolition has provided the leeway to make some changes in the approved design of the corridor project even after completion of over 30 per cent of the construction.
According to divisional commissioner Deepak Agrawal, “The razing of an old building has created a huge space near the ghats, enabling a straight alignment of approach road from ghats to Kashi Vishwanath Temple (KVT). Now, the alignment has been changed and the approach road and ramp for physically challenged and elderly pilgrims have become straight from entry point at ghat to highest flood point where escalator facility will be available.” He further said, “We will now construct ‘Ganga View Gallery’ – an 80m long and 11m wide platform – in the additional space for the pilgrims and visitors providing them a view of the Ganga and the corridor area. Proposals for a cafeteria and seating arrangements on it are being finalised.” Another platform will also be constructed near ghats and steps in pyramid shape will be constructed, between both platforms.
