Two Ships Under Construction in Cochin to Revolutionize Yamuna Travel Experience

The Union Ministry of Water Transport is gearing up to introduce a new mode of transportation on the Yamuna River, connecting the holy cities of Gokul and Vrindavan. In a significant development, two state-of-the-art cruises are currently under construction in Cochin, with a capacity to accommodate up to 200 passengers each. This initiative, spearheaded by the Uttar Pradesh Braj Teerth Vikas Parishad (UPBTVP), aims to enhance tourism and facilitate seamless travel along the Yamuna waterway.

The project received a green signal following an announcement by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who envisions transforming Mathura into a hub accessible by both water and air transport. In collaboration with the Union Water Transport Ministry, the UPBTVP has conducted a comprehensive survey of the Yamuna River to plan and execute the operation of cruises, taking inspiration from the successful model introduced in Varanasi.

The proposed waterway will span approximately 22 kilometers, stretching from Gokul Barrage to Vrindavan, and will feature five strategically located stations. The cruises will have five halts between Gokul and Vrindavan. Starting from the Vasudev Vatika at Gokul Barrage, the water way halts will include Jugalghat and Kesighat in Vrindavan. Additionally, stations will be established at Devaraha Baba Ghat, Kans Quila, and a location near Dhruv Ghat. To accommodate the fluctuating water levels of the Yamuna, smaller ferries, capable of carrying 18 to 20 passengers, may also be deployed.
