The Assam government, led by Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, has unveiled plans to build a Kamakhya Temple in the state of Maharashtra. This announcement comes after a positive response from Maharashtra’s Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, who extended his support for the ambitious project. The initiative aims to promote cultural and spiritual ties between the two states and foster a sense of unity through this remarkable endeavor.
Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma shared the details of this collaboration, highlighting the harmonious inter-state effort to build a Kamakhya Temple and a Namghar in Maharashtra. “When Eknath Shinde came to Assam, I proposed building a Kamakhya Temple and also a Namghar in Maharashtra,” CM Sarma stated, adding that Shinde readily accepted the proposal and invited him to Mumbai for in-depth discussions.
The Assam chief minister expressed his eagerness to meet his Maharashtra counterpart to further deliberate on the project. This initiative holds great promise for reinforcing cultural connections between the two states and enhancing the spiritual landscape in Maharashtra.
According to CM Himanta Biswa Sarma, the Assam government plans to construct the Kamakhya Temple on land owned by the state near Mumbai. This strategic location is expected to serve as a symbol of religious harmony and unity, where devotees from all walks of life can come together to offer their prayers and seek spiritual solace.
