Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday laid the foundation stone of multiple projects in Somnath, Gujarat via video conferencing.
The projects include Somnath Promenade, Somnath Exhibition Centre, Parvati Temple and reconstructed temple precinct of Old (Juna) Somnath.
While speaking at the virtual event, PM Modi said, "We need to strengthen religious tourism. This will also provide employment to youth. They (youth) will also get knowledge about our past. Faith can't be crushed from terror. We should learn from the past."
PM Modi also said that the Somnath Temple was broken several times in the history of hundreds of years, the idols here were desecrated, every effort was made to erase its existence. But every time it was made to fall, it rose again.
"I express my sincere gratitude to all members of Somnath trust and Somanth devotees across the world who made this possible," the Prime Minister said.
