Prime Minister Narendra Modi On December 13th, the Kasivishwanat Corridor, which has been converted into Varanasi, will open.
The 80 billion rupee corridor is one of the major infrastructure projects of Uttar Pradesh Prime Minister Yogia Detianas ahead of next year’s parliamentary elections. It is also one of Modi’s pet projects, the MP of Varanasi. Modi was reportedly involved in the redevelopment from the initial briefing to the review of the master plan, while also providing input.
This project was designed by Bimal Patel, the architect behind the Central Vista Redevelopment Project proposed by New Delhi.
After opening, the first stage of redevelopment covering the precincts will be open to the public. The second phase will include the redevelopment of the Ganges bank and will be ready by January.
Kashi, Punya Bhumi of Baba Vishwanath Ji, has been the center of spiritual and dermic awakening since ancient times.

Visitors now pass through densely populated lanes with shops on both sides to reach the temple. The 24 temples used to cover 300 square meters. It is currently being expanded to make the area wider. The government has acquired 314 private property to expand the area of the temple to 3,000 square meters.
The demolition of private buildings also led to the restoration of at least 40 ancient temples.
The project has set up a direct link between the Ganges and the temple that can be covered in minutes. Sanctum Sanctorum will be able to accommodate 5,000 people, and the temple complex will be able to accommodate 50,000-75,000 followers.
Construction included the construction of temple chokes, museums, galleries, multipurpose auditoriums, devoted facilitation centers, public toilets and shelters for priests. About 70% of the project area remains open due to the green cover.

He also shared a video with the tweet showing the pre-redeveloped temple complex with a snapshot of the construction and suggesting what the redeveloped area would look like.
