Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday reviewed the development work in progress at Kedarnath Dham.
The discussions centred around furthering the divinity of Kedarnath Temple and Jagadguru Adi Shankaracharya’s samadhi sthal, maintenance of cleanliness and ensuring extensive development.
The review also focussed on assuring that pilgrims get all facilities on the Gaurikund-Kedarnath route and arrangements be made to showcase the historical and cultural significance of the holy site through the use of the latest technology.
The Uttarakhand government is making a concerted effort to develop Kedarnath as a smart township following the devastating 2013 floods. A special agency, Kedarnath Charitable Trust was created by the state government to promote the reconstruction project of Kedarnath Dham.
