JSW to restore Shiv Khori shrine under CSR; J&K Lt Governor lays foundation stone

Jammu and Kashmir, Lt Governor Manoj Sinha today virtually inaugurated the foundation stone laying ceremony for the restoration of the Shri Shiv Khori shrine, a famous cave shrine of Hindus devoted to lord Shiva, situated in the Reasi district.

"Laid e-foundation stone for the restoration of the Holy Shrine of Shiv Khori by JSW Foundation. I am glad Shri Sajjan Jindal Ji, Chairman and MD of JSW Group, also joined us on this auspicious occasion. New facilities will ease the pilgrimage & increase the influx of devotees," the LG tweeted.

Shiv Khori is one of the most important religious sites of the country. Restoration, upgradation and new infra facilities will ensure unique spiritual tourism circuit to devotees. It will provide major fillip to economy and create large employment opportunities for local population, he added.

The Shiv Khori Shrine will be restored as part of the JSW Group's CSR initiative. JSW Foundation has signed an MoU with Chairman of Shri Shiv Khori Shrine Board (SSKSB) in this regard.

As part of the restoration project, the JSW team, alongside a group of experts, conducted a comprehensive scientific survey. The survey identified several key areas for improvement, including the renovation of bathing ghats and toilets, the establishment of food kiosks, drinking water points, rest areas, rain shelters along pathways, installation of benches, dustbins, and the creation of other necessary infrastructure and facilities.

The foundation will provide necessary funds under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) corpus for the development of facilities and support the Shiv Khori Shrine Board in ensuring public convenience.
