Prime Minister Modi Unveils Adi Shankaracharya statue At Kedarnath

Prime Minister Narendra Modi offered prayers at the Kedarnath temple Friday and unveiled a magnificent 12-feet statue of Adi Guru Shankaracharya weighing 35 tonnes, work on which had begun in 2019.

The Adi Shankaracharya Samadhi has been reconstructed after its destruction in the 2013 Uttarakhand floods. This is Modi’s fifth visit to the temple as Prime Minister.

PM Modi will also inaugurate key infrastructure projects worth Rs 130 crores, including Saraswati Retaining Wall Aasthapath and Ghats, Mandakini Retaining Wall Aasthapath, Tirth Purohit Houses and Garud Chatti bridge on river Mandakini.

PM Modi is also scheduled to lay the foundation stone for multiple projects in the hill state and address a public rally during his visit to the shrine. His visit comes ahead of the 2022 Assembly polls in the state.
