Building a New India

Inauguration of Sudarshan Setu

The inauguration of Sudarshan Setu, India’s longest cable-stayed bridge, symbolized connectivity and progress. Built at a cost of ₹ 979 crore, the bridge serves as a vital link between Okha and Beyt Dwarka, facilitating access to the revered Dwarkadhish temple.

Dwarka Darshan: A Divine Experience

During his visit to Dwarka, PM Modi immersed himself in spiritual experiences, including offering prayers at the Dwarkadhish Temple and exploring the submerged city associated with Lord Krishna.
