After inspection, it was decided to start the second phase of the works under the Prasad Yojana soon. Open museum will be built in front of Kedar Dham. Ancient idols will be installed in it. A separate land will be identified for this in the master plan, so that no other buildings can be constructed at these places in future.

All this work is being done to make the beauty of Dham. The design of Open Museum will be prepared with the help of Culture and Museum Department. The tourism department will sign a memorandum of understanding (memorandum of understanding) within a few days for this.

At the same time, Kedarpuri will be developed as an eco friendly township. Secretary Dilip Javalkar informed that the work of waiting shed and construction of 40 shops for pilgrims will be started. The overall public facility and toilet plan has also been approved in Kedarnath. These tasks will be done with the help of ADB, PSUs and other institutions.
