BHUBANESWAR: The National Monument Authority (NMA) has requested the Shree Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) to transform its personal constructing redevelopment plan below the Jagannath temple heritage hall challenge.

The SJTA constructing is proposed to be reconstructed inside the regulated space of 200 metres of the twelfth century shrine. The NMA has requested the authorities to scale back the peak of the proposed constructing in order to stop overshadowing of the temple advanced by a tall construction.

Since any new building within the regulated zone of a protected monument wants NMA approval, the SJTA had submitted an software for grant of requisite permission below Section 20(C) of the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act (AMASR). 

The software talked about the peak of the constructing to be of 14.5 mtr. “NMA members felt that the height of the building should be restricted to a maximum 7.5 mtr considering the heritage value of the entire place. They have recommended for reduction of the building height and asked the SJTA to submit a revised proposal and drawings for the building,” NMA Member Secretary Bhaskar Verma informed The New Indian Express.
