Manama: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday has launched $4.2 million redevelopment project of Hindu temple in Bahrain, according to reports.
The USD 4.2 million redevelopment project is of the 200-year-old Lord Sri Krishna temple in the Bahraini capital.
He is the first Indian Prime Minister to visit the key Gulf nation. The PM has offered prayers at the Shreenathji Temple in Manama, the oldest temple in the region. He also bought ‘prasad’ with the RuPay card after launching it in the UAE on Saturday.
The facelift for the Shreenathji (Shree Krishna) temple in Manama will kick off later this year.
The USD 4.2 million redevelopment project will be on a piece of land measuring 16,500 square feet and the new four-floor structure covering 45,000 square feet will have an overall height of 30 meters.
The heritage and the 200-year-old legacy of the temple will be highlighted in the redevelopment and the new iconic complex will house the sanctum sanctorum and prayer halls.
