LANDSCAPE MASTER PLAN
The project is for the Ghats redevelopment along river Ganga in Varanasi. Known as the spiritual capital of India, Varanasi is a city in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. It dates back to the 11th century BC
All the Ghats presently are not maintained properly due to various factors. Most of the Ghats are in private ownerships with some belonging to royal families. The increased tourist inflow and poor upkeep has led to deterioration of these Ghats.
The scope of the study was to develop a vision and concept master plan for entire Western bank of river Ganga from the New Bridge (under construction) in South of Varanasi to Adi Keshav Temple in North. The overarching objective is to restore the image and brand value of Ghats, thus promoting cities efforts in getting listed amongst the world heritage towns. Also the document may be used as a holistic guideline for carrying our restoration works along the river bank.
