The Shri Krishna Mandir will come up in a 20,000 sq ft plot at the capital’s H-9 area
Pakistan has started the construction process of a ₹10 crore Hindu temple — the first in Islamabad.
The Krishna temple will come up in a 20,000 sq ft plot at the capital’s H-9 area.
The groundbreaking ceremony for the temple was performed by Parliamentary Secretary on Human Rights Lal Chand Malhi on Tuesday.
Addressing the gathering, Mr. Malhi said there were several pre-1947 era temple structures in Islamabad and its adjoining areas, including one at Saidpur village and at the hill point overlooking the Korang river near Rawal lake. However, they have been abandoned and not used.
