Restoring the heritage of the holy city, Sri Harmandir Sahib and Jallianwala Bagh surrounding area would be made to live up to the international standards, disclosed at a high level meeting to review the implementation of developing Amritsar as a smart city.
A Giant waterfall with the statue of Maharaja Ranjit Singh atop will be a major tourist attraction. This fountain would showcase cascading waterfalls, water animations, computerized water show and would emerge as a ‘thing of beauty’ in the city. This will be coupled with the façade development and beautification of the earmarked stretch.
Saragarhi parking will have electronic façade signage equipped like the Times Square. Town Hall building would to be transformed into a state museum. Renovation of Guru Nanak auditorium would be done.
The façade of buildings in the area including Dharam Singh market would be beautified under a uniform theme, with red sand stone and would have uniform signage. The automatic bombards would be installed near the main fountain, demarking the further stretch as pedestrian pathway having all amenities. He added that ample plantation and Punjab heritage related sculpture in front of Dharam Singh Market would be done besides a tall sculpture related to freedom struggle near Jallianwala Bagh.
The total pathway would be well lit up and information kiosks displaying weather information, electronic signage and tastefully chosen street lights would be installed. Moreover, the statues of stalwarts of Punjab would also be installed on the suitable spots.
Another main highlight of this prestigious project is transformation of the façade of Saragarhi parking area into an electronic façade signage equipped with LED video screens, on the pattern of Times Square, New York. A food court would also be developed opposite Dharm Singh market. Along with this project, the beautification of Town Hall building would also commence to transform it into a State Museum.
The detailed project report is ready and work would commence on it by August 2015 after completing tendering and allocation formalities.
