The Kamakhya shrine would soon flaunt a gilded look with three big kolohs (pitchers) atop the main dome of the temple, being plated in gold by the Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) owned by Mukesh Ambani.
The Reliance group has donated 19 kilograms of gold for the purpose so far and the work is likely to be completed before the coming Diwali.
The main dome of the temple already has three small gold-plated pitchers. However, the new gold work would be bigger in size.
The Reliance Industries Ltd has sent its engineers and artisans for completing the project, which is being supervised by the Reliance Jewels.
“The copper plating work over the preexisting stone pitcher has already been completed. The gold plating is likely to be completed before Diwali if the weather conditions permit. We are expecting the Ambani couple to visit the temple after the completion of the project. However, we have not yet received any official intimation about their visit,” Mohit Chandra Sarma, Bor Doloi of the temple, said.
