Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch a USD 4.2 million redevelopment project of the 200-year-old Lord Sri Krishna temple during his two-day visit to Bahrain. 

A special ceremony will be held to launch the redevelopment of the Shreenathji (Shree Krishna) temple in the Bahraini capital of Manama. 

This is a first-ever Prime Ministerial visit to Bahrain by India, with Modi scheduled to interact with the Indian diaspora in the Gulf nation. 

Bob Thaker, President of Thattai Hindu Merchant community, said the newly-built structure will be 45,000 square feet in area and will have 80 per cent more capacity to host devotees.

The project also aims to have a facility to hold Hindu weddings, in keeping with the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibition Authority’s initiative to make Bahrain a hub of Indian weddings, according to reports.

The Indian prime minister will also be meeting the King of Bahrain Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and other leaders during his visit.
