Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday took to the microblogging site ‘X’ and revealed his favourite region in Uttarakhand.
The Prime Minister reached Uttarakhand on October 12 and began his day with a darshan at the Adi Kailash peak, an abode of Lord Shiva. Wearing a traditional tribal outfit complete with a white turban and an off-white ‘ranga’ (a robe-like upper body garment), Modi performed an ‘aarti’ and blew the conch shell at the Shiva-Parvati temple situated along the banks of Parvati Kund in Jolingkong.
Vouching for the region’s beauty, he said, “If someone were to ask me- if there is one place you must visit in Uttarakhand, which place would it be, I would say you must visit Parvati Kund and Jageshwar Temples in the Kumaon region of the state.”
The PM swore by its natural beauty and divinity and said “it will leave you spellbound”.
Sharing his personal experiences, he said, “Of course, Uttarakhand has many well-known places worth visiting and I have also visited the state very often. This includes the sacred places of Kedarnath and Badrinath, which are the most memorable experiences. But, to return to Parvati Kund and Jageshwar Temples after many years has been special.”
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday inaugurated and laid the foundation of multiple development projects in Uttarakhand worth nearly Rs 4,200 crore. The projects, numbering 23 in total, will give impetus to infrastructure, education, health, electricity, drinking water, sports, tourism, disaster mitigation, and horticulture sectors in the hill state.
