(Vrindavan Today) – Yamuna Authority to Build Akshardham-like Krishnadham Temple on 100 Acres in Heritage City

2023.04.27 (Vrindavan Today News):  The Yamuna Authority (YEIDA) has announced the construction of a Greenfield Expressway and a grand temple on the banks of the Yamuna in the proposed Heritage City. The highlight of the city will be the Akshardham-like Krishnadham temple, which will have a 100-feet-tall statue of Lord Krishna.

The temple will be built on a sprawling 100-acre area and will feature an interactive cultural center and a market like Delhi Haat and Shilpgram, where tourists can find a wide range of local goods. The project will be completed in three phases, starting with the construction of a 6.8 kilometer greenfield expressway from the 77th kilometer of the Yamuna Expressway to reach Banke Bihari Mandir.

In the second phase, the Yamuna Authority will develop the Raya Urban Center on 9350 hectares of land, out of which a heritage city will be built on 1300 acres. The city will be developed 500 meters wide on one side of the expressway and 800 meters wide on the other side. A Shilpgram will be built on 70 acres of land, modeled on Udaipur, showcasing the crafts of the Braj region. Additionally, a 15.6-acre interactive cultural center inspired by the Kingdom of Dreams in Gurugram will also be built, depicting Krishna Leela.

The third phase of the project will include the development of institutional areas, an arts gallery, and a resort. The land use for this phase will include residential, professional, mixed land use, office, transport, recreational green, riverfront, and tourist zones.

The project will be developed on a public-private partnership (PPP) model, with the Yamuna Authority responsible for installing the expressway, temple, and Lord Krishna’s statue. The DPR (Detailed Project Report) will be sent to the government for approval, following which tenders will be issued to select a developer company.
