Speaking to TOI on Wednesday, tourism minister Satpal Maharaj said, “Although there were reports doing the rounds that the Ambanis are interested in solemnising the wedding of their son at the revered temple, I am now officially writing to them inviting them to host the wedding function in the temple. It is believed that couples who get married here have a divine bonding and a happy married life.”
He added that the spot would soon be developed as a “traditional Vedic wedding destination.” “I have issued directions to Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam (GMVN) to spruce up the guest houses, set up luxury tents and develop the place as a wedding destination. At present, the temple area can accommodate around 100 people but plans are being chalked out to set up convention centres and more lodgings.”
Rajana Rawat, a wedding planner, said that development of Triyuginarayan as a wedding destination should be done, but in a holistic manner. “Triyuginarayan temple is nestled in the lap of the Himalayas and it can be developed as a unique wedding destination. However, local cuisine and songs should also be made part of the celebrations, so that it benefits local residents as well,” she said.
