Radhakund tourist accommodation awaits inauguration

The tourist accommodation in Radhakund, Mathura, is eagerly waiting for its inauguration. Despite the completion of its construction, it has not yet been put into use due to some unfinished work. Situated on the circumambulation route of Sri Govardhan, this homestay is located on the road connecting Radhakund to Govardhan, approximately 22 km from NH 2. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath laid its foundation stone on February 14, 2021.

Gokul residential house closed for years

The tourist accommodation in Gokul has remained closed for nearly 20 years. The dilapidated building is currently unoccupied, and the tourism department has neglected its maintenance. There have been previous announcements to operate this residential house under the PPP model.

Dilapidated building in Bateshwar

The Bateshwar Tourist Home, which is around 30 years old, is in a dilapidated state. Currently, this five-room tourist house lacks the necessary facilities for accommodating visitors and will, therefore, be temporarily closed.

With the implementation of the PPP model in these tourist accommodations, the aim is to revitalize the properties and provide better services for tourists. The involvement of private investors is expected to bring in necessary investments and expertise to improve the overall experience for visitors.
