Biltrax Media Jan 23, 2024 2

Master Planning aimed to reimagine cultural heritage through sustainable development and technological integration to set an example for the New Modern India.

The city of Ayodhya unfolds an ancient narrative where history breathes through intricately woven threads of diverse cultures and timeless traditions. As the culture reverberates through its streets, the city proudly proclaims its role as the harbinger of tradition. Redeveloping such a sacred space comes with the responsibility of a conscious and integrated approach. This approach celebrates its heritage and fosters a harmonious coexistence between the past and the present.

In the coming years, Ayodhya City will become a global tourism destination focusing on spiritual, cultural, and heritage assets and events. The team of CP Kukreja Architects has designed the implementation strategy and integrated infrastructure plan for the city. It outlines the blueprint for town planning, transport, traffic, infrastructure, finance, economy, heritage, tourism, urban design, and renewable resources.

Sustainable Master Planning to Boost Economic Development

It includes augmentation of civic infrastructure (water, sewerage, power supply, distribution, energy, regional and city level transport etc.), planned zoning and contextual urban design guidelines (Colour palette for buildings’ facade and special architectural features). Moreover, to boost economic development centered around tourism, the planning integrates the spiritual essence and traditional healthcare. It also has the infrastructure for residential, social, commercial and hospitality amenities, assessing growth potential for the next 100 years.

Integrating Smart Technology in the Essence of the Ancient Cultural Heritage

The city’s Heritage assets include retrofitting and redeveloping the core city area. Additionally, it includes curating tourism experiences and events for heritage and other areas of interest and public places. The redevelopment includes riverfront development of the Saryu River. This comprises inculcating water sports and the Three Parikrama Margs (5,14,84 kosi) with adequate facilities. It also has an integrated development and connectivity to neighbourhood pilgrim destinations. The backbone of all the infrastructural development is Smart Technology, including Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), smart grids and smart transportation.
