Badal Unveils Golden Temple Plaza

AMRITSAR – Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and Deputy CM Sukhbir Badal dedicated the first phase of the Golden Temple entrance plaza to the people here this evening. This will pave the way for easy movement of the pilgrims at the main entrance of the holy shrine.

Dedicating the plaza, the CM termed it as an architectural marvel which was a tribute by the state government to add to the glory of Darbar Sahib.

The CM said the SAD-BJP government was committed to perpetuate the glorious history of the state. He said the government had constructed world-class monuments such as Virasat-e-Khalsa at Anandpur Sahib, Chapparchiri War Memorial at Mohali, memorials of big and small holocaust at Sangrur and Gurdaspur, besides the upcoming Jang-e-Azaadi memorial at Kartarpur. Likewise, special focus was being laid on the development of religious towns of state.

The plaza’s features include 8,250 square metre of marble paved area for hassle-free movement of devotees, increased public amenities at ‘jora ghar’ (shoe-keeping facility) and ‘gathri ghar’ (baggage room), shaded peripheral colonnade compatible with the holy shrine’s character, perforated stone screen walls, aesthetically designed architectural lighting, entrance gateways and a fountain at its centre. The work on the second phase entailing a string of facilities in the basement is yet to start.
