Chariot statue to adorn city junction in Diplomatic Enclave

  • | Wednesday | 12th June, 2024

Giving an aesthetic look to the national capital, an imposing and painstakingly carved horse-driven chariot of ParthaSarthi Krishna with Arjuna, handpicked by Lt Governor (LG) Vinai Kumar Saxena, now adorns the junction of Sardar Patel Marg and the Simon Bolivar Marg in the Diplomatic Enclave of the Capital. Giving details, officials said here on Tuesday, this sculpture was handpicked by Saxena during his visit to Dausa in Rajasthan last year.  It was planned to be installed in the Capital as part of LGs initiative to adorn the city with artefacts, sculptures and fountains, . Made out of Dholpur Stone, this 17x5x9 ft sculpture, comprising four horses and two statues was installed after much hard work by the artisans, who created it, and efforts by officials of NDMC.  The horse-driven chariot was originally planned to be installed in the run up to the G-20 Summit. However, during its installation, the LG observed that the horses in the original sculpture were disproportionately small.  Accordingly, the sculpture was remade and installed recently.  Many more such aesthetic artefacts and sculptures will be coming up in different parts of the city in coming days.  Installed on a platform of 22ft diameter, this striking sculpture is surrounded by coloured geyser fountains with 25 nozzles spread over 60ft.  Reaching up to 6 ft, these fountains in 08 warm colours provide a delightful experience to passers-by in the evening.  Plantation has been done all around the chariot. Total size of platform is 86x37 feet.
