NEW DELHI: The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh has unveiled plans to construct state-of-the-art VVIP guest houses in the holy cities of Ayodhya and Prayagraj.

These guest houses are intended to cater to high-profile visitors, including the President, Prime Minister, Governors, and Chief Ministers, ensuring they have secure and convenient accommodations.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath reviewed the designs and layouts of the proposed guest houses during a presentation on Friday. Emphasising the importance of these facilities, he noted, “With the establishment of the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple, Ayodhya has seen an influx of distinguished guests from across the country and the world. It is essential to provide them with guest houses that meet high standards of security and convenience.”

The proposed guest house in Ayodhya will be situated on land belonging to the Tourism Department along the banks of the Saryu River. Spanning approximately three and a half acres, the architecture of the building will reflect the Vaishnava tradition. CM Yogi specified that the height of the new structure should not exceed that of the Ram Janmabhoomi Temple.

In Prayagraj, the new guest house will be located on Maharishi Dayanand Marg, covering an area of about 10,300 square meters. This facility will include modern amenities such as conference halls, dining areas, and canteens. The Chief Minister highlighted the necessity for these facilities to ensure the comfort and convenience of visiting dignitaries.

Both guest houses will be developed as ‘green buildings,’ emphasizing sustainable construction practices. They will also feature One District One Product (ODOP) blocks, showcasing the diverse handicrafts of Uttar Pradesh. “Including an ODOP block will help visitors acquaint themselves with the rich craftsmanship of our state,” CM Yogi said.
