A modern delight mixed with Indian heritage – Varanasi’s new Cricket stadium –
On Saturday, thousands of fans thronged to see Shri Narendra Modi lay the foundation stone for the latest stadium. As per reports, the Indian Cricket Board is going to invest upwards of INR 300 Crores. The Uttar Pradesh Government will also contribute upwards of INR 100 Crores.
The stadium will be built on 30 acres of land in an area called Ganjari in Varanasi. As per reports, the entire stadium will house a maximum capacity of close to 30,000 fans. The Stadium is supposed to be built by December 2025.
What makes the shape of the stadium special is that it will mix modern infrastructure with historic depictions. The Stadium’s design is based on the Hindu God, Shiva. Right from the floodlights to the seating arrangements will be some depictions of Lord Shiva.
Lucknow already has the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Stadium otherwise known as the Ekana. The stadium is the home of Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL. India will play their World Cup game on 29th October at the Ekana Stadium.
The oldest cricket ground in Uttar Pradesh is based out of Kanpur. Green Park Stadium has hosted some of the most famous India’s games.
Sachin Tendulkar scored one of his famous centuries at Green Park Stadium against Australia in 1998. The newest Stadium is surely going to be the latest achievement as far as the Indian Cricket Board is concerned.
