Author: Kartikye Bordoloi
Site Location: Arunachal Pradesh
Institute: Faculty of Architecture, Marwadi University
Advisor: Prof. Parth Sadariya


Bhagwan Parshuram is believed to have cleansed his sin here of committing matricide by washing his hands in the holy water to rid the axe after creating the passage for the River Brahmaputra through the Himalayas. This mythological significance forms the cultural heritage and attracts a large number of pilgrims (70,000 to 100,000) particularly during Makar Sankranti. There is a steady rise in the number. The present facilities and amenities are inadequate and poor.
The Government of India in 2022 under the scheme PRASHAD sanctioned Rs. 37.88 Crores for the basic amenities and facilities and enrichment of the religious tourism experience. The goal is to integrate the kund vicinity in a prioritised, planned and sustainable manner.
Arunachal Pradesh is bestowed with a rich biodiversity, flora & fauna, scenic beauty, lifestyle, cultural heritage and a diverse ethnicity, food, dress, arts & crafts, and festivals. It is proposed to showcase and promote these attributes for the benefit, economic development of the local people as an inclusive program.
