President attends religious ceremony in Mathura
Mathura, Nov 16 (ANI): President Pranab Mukherjee, on Sunday attended a religious ceremony at an under-construction temple dedicated to Lord Krishna in holy town of Vrindavan in Uttar Pradesh. The ‘Chandrodaya’ temple, which will showcase early life of Lord Krishna, will be an architectural marvel. The foundation stone for the temple was laid on March 16 this year. President Mukherjee said India is one of the oldest and culturally rich civilizations in the world. Reportedly, the temple project is expected to get over in next five years and funds have been collected from various corporate houses and devotees of Lord Krishna. Meanwhile, Mukherjee also added that there could be no better way of doing this than spreading the Bhagvad Gita’s message of universal love and humanity.
