Jammu: A heritage gate worth Rs 50 lakh will soon be a gateway to the City of Temples coming up at Nagrota-Sidhra Bypass to welcome the visitors heading towards Kashmir or the Vaishno Devi Cave Shrine.
To be constructed by the Jammu Municipal Corporation under Smart City Project, the grand heritage gate is coming up at an entrance of ‘City of Temples’ on Sidhra-Nagrota Bypass road.
“The gate will be given a heritage look so that those traveling to Shri Mata Vaishno Devi or to Srinagar through the bypass will come to know about the start of the jurisdiction of ‘City of Temples’,” an official said.
“The JMC has in its smart city plan to raise such gates at all entry and exit points of the Jammu city,” said an official stating that one of such gates, is almost ready at Apsara Road in Gandhinagar-Gole Market location and another at the Town Hall, which was inaugurated last month.
“The idea behind constructing these gates is to make the visitors feel good and carry the memories along with smart city initiatives being undertaken by the Jammu Municipal Corporation,” he added.
Apart from this, an official said that a rotary is also being developed at Raja Mandlik Chowk near Narwal on Nagrota bypass road—the route heading towards Bagh-e-Bahu, Raghunath Temple etc. via Gujjar Nagar bridge for which Rs 20 lakhs is being spent.
“The welcome heritage gate will be built on the bypass road towards the circular road and it is expected to be completed in the next four months.
“The gates will give a new look to the Jammu City and people especially tourists will feel good while traveling in the City and such gates are coming up at all entry and exit points besides at prominent chowks of the City for which funds are soon to be released by the government,” he added.
