1200-people-capacity Varanasi's 'Rudraksh' Temple is now ready

NEW DELHI, 15 JULY. Prime Minister Narendra Modi today inaugurated a state-of-the-art centre that he says will make Varanasi, his parliamentary constituency, an attractive destination for conferences and pull in tourists and businesspersons to the city. Named "Rudraksh" will offer a glimpse of the cultural richness of the ancient city. As many as 108 Rudraksha have been installed at the centre, its roof mimics a Shiva Linga, and that is powered by LED lights.

"There's one more person whom I can't forget to mention today. Another friend of mine from Japan - Shinzo Abe. When he came to Kashi as Prime Minister, I had a discussion with him on the idea of Rudraksh. He immediately instructed his officials to work on this project," the Prime Minister added.

Located at the posh Sigra area on 2.87 hectares of land, the two-storey structure has a seating capacity of 1,200 people. The objective, say officials, is to provide opportunities for
social and cultural interactions between people at the international convention centre.
