Kurukshetra, October 22

Kurukshetra will soon have four bronze statues — one each of Arjuna and Bhishma in Narkatari village, of Abhimanyu in Amin village and of "virat swaroop" of Lord Krishna in Jyotisar.

Krishna's Virat swaroop to cost Rs9.5 cr

  • Bhishma on a bed of arrows and Arjuna shooting an arrow in the ground to fetch water will be installed in Narkatari village. The project will cost Rs32 lakh
  • An 18-foot statue of Abhimanyu will be installed at Amin village, the place where he was killed during Mahabharata, at a cost of Rs24 lakh

  • A 42-foot tall 'virat swaroop' of lord Krishna will be installed at Jyotisar, the birthplace of Gita, at a cost of Rs9.5 crore

As per information, the project of Narkatari in which Bhishma will be shown on a bed of arrows and Arjuna shooting an arrow in the ground to fetch water will cost Rs 32 lakh. The height of Arjuna's statue is around 9 feet, while the length of Bhishma's 'sarsaiya" is around 10 feet.

At Amin village, the place where Abhimanyu was killed during Mahabharata, an 18-foot statue of Abhimanyu will be installed at a cost of Rs 24 lakh, while the 42-foot tall Virat Swaroop of Lord Krishna at Jyotisar, the birthplace of Gita, will cost around Rs 9.5 crore and after the landscaping and other work, the total cost of the project would be around Rs 10 crore.

The statues are being installed according to the references and local legends associated with the Mahabharata. The Kurukshetra Development Board has also planned to get a "chakravyuha" formation on ground, and develop a park on a later stage in Amin village, and Abhimanyu's statue will be integrated in that development project which would be carried out at 8-acre land in the village. Madan Mohan Chhabra, honorary secretary, Kurukshetra Development Board, said: "All three projects are part of the CM's announcements. The statues are being sculpted by Ram Vanji Sutar's unit in Noida who designed the Statue of Unity. The statues for Amin and Narkatari projects are ready and will be brought as soon as the pedestals are ready. These are likely to be installed in a couple of months. The statue of lord Krishna is likely to be ready by January 2021. However, we have requested them to get it ready by the end of this year."
