Prayagraj will develop tourist sites before Kumbh 2025


Prayagraj (UP), Jul 23 (IANS) Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh plans to develop several tourist attractions in Prayagraj ahead of Maha Kumbh in 2025.

One such project is the Kanihar City Lake project which will be developed as a joint effort by the Prayagraj Municipal Corporation (PMC) and the Prayagraj Development Authority (PDA).

Kanihar Town Lake is proposed in an area of ​​65.68 hectares of vacant land near the villages of Jhunsi and Andawa, just a few kilometers from the heart of Sangam town.

The project will be developed as a preferred picnic spot for city residents as well as tourists.

As the PDA plans to develop the forest using the Miyawaki technique, the PMC prepares to hire a consultant and work on revitalizing the existing lake at the site.

Once ready, Kanihar City Lake Forest will serve as a weekend getaway site for city residents and a major attraction for tourists.

According to PMC Chief Engineer, Satish Kumar, “The PMC will soon prepare a Detailed Project Report (DPR) and submit it to secure the necessary funds. With the help of experts, we will renovate the Kanihar Lake area to Jhunsi. PMC will take the help of expert architects and consultants who will be hired soon.”

Kumar said that to make the lake and its surroundings more attractive, PMC also plans to build cabins around the lake where visitors can come and stay for a few days.

Before the renovation, a boundary wall will be built around the lake to protect it from encroachments.

The project is expected to be completed before the start of the Kumbh in 2025.

Rohit Khanna, Superintendent Engineer of PDA, said: “There will be very few concrete constructions in the plan and the site will have a natural path made of grass with natural landscapes on each side, a playground for children , an open gymnasium and a sailing facility. “
