Green Ramayan Vatika Bareilly – Bareilly Development Authority is going to develop the park in the form of Ramayana Vatika in an area of 33 thousand square meters in its dream project Ramganga Nagar Residential Scheme. This park is based on the concept of Ramayana. All the trees that were planted in the places where Lord Rama went during his exodus, where he rested, are being planted in this Ramayana Vatika. BDA vice-chairman Joginder Singh said that the work to develop the park has started. On the walls of the Vatika, incidents related to the life of Lord Rama will be engraved on stones.
The Department will construct a garden for their enrichment by saving the species of plants growing in Tretayuga. It will be named as Ramayana Vatika. After issuing instructions from the government level, the officers have started the exercise.
The help of Pandits, Vaidyas and experts will be taken to find out which plants would have been growing in Bareilly during the Ramayana period. About 88 species will be preserved in Ramayana Vatika.
After the temple construction activities started in Ayodhya, the government has now started preparing to prepare a garden of plants growing in the period of Maryada Purushottam Shri Ram. For this, information has been sought from all the districts about the plants growing during the Ramayana period.
About 139 types of trees and plants are mentioned in the Ramayana. According to research, many species have become completely extinct. Only about 88 types of species remain. Out of these, the government has sought a record of locally grown plants.
So that by preserving them in the garden, people can be introduced to the historicity of the Ramayana period. According to the officials, it will take a long time to find the plant species of Ramayana period. Rudraksha, Kalpavriksha, Bamboo, Lotus, Bel, Kadam, Aak, Castor, Amla, Shami, Gular, Chonkara, Ashoka, Banyan, Peepal, Ber etc. species are still common. But, there are also many such species, to find them, the help of experts doing research work, pundits with fine knowledge of Ramayana and knowledgeable herbalists will have to be taken.
