Gujrat: Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurates the new Circuit House near Somnath Temple in Gujarat via video conferencing at 11:00 am today. The inauguration followed by the Prime Minister’s address on the occasion, the PMO said on Thursday. Somnath Temple is visited by lakhs of devotees from India and abroad every year.
The need for the new Circuit House was felt as the existing government facility was located far off from the temple. The new Circuit House has been built at a cost of over Rs 30 crore and is located near the Somnath Temple, the PMO said. It is equipped with top-class facilities including suites, VIP and deluxe rooms, conference room, auditorium hall etc. The landscaping has been done in such a manner that a sea view is available from every room, it added.
In a bid to strengthen religious tourism in the country, the Prime Minister had inaugurated several projects in Somnath and laid the foundation stone for Parvati Temple in August last year. Other projects like the Somnath Promenade, Somnath Exhibition Centre and the reconstructed temple precinct of Old (Juna) Somnath were also inaugurated.
