From Udaipole to Court Choraha, bypassing Surajpole and Delhi Gate, this can ease the traffic congestion in that area. Earlier, the business oriented people operating in the affected locations with the medium of Chamber of Commerce had objected the construction, suggesting that elevated roads will affect their daily business activities. By focusing on this keen concern, UIT has got the Design, Length, and Span approved through a DPR with the help of Ahmedabad-based project consultants and road designers. Apart from this, several times local meets have been settled undertaking the construction of over-bridge in Udaipur.

Once the project is completed successfully, Udaipur will witness the ease in traffic which is originating from Sector 11, Hiran Magri, Patel Circle, City Station heading directly to Ashok Nagar, Panchwati, Bhupalpura, Chetak and beyond Fatehpura, Nathdwara, will avoid the crowded areas of Surajpole, Delhi Gate, Collectorate Road, and Court Choraha. Heavy transports will no longer affect near Delhi Gate or Surajpole unless they are determined to be in these locations.

Udaipur people is having positive expectations this time. We wish the project of elevated road gets start soon.

This enormous responsibility is fulfilled through a comprehensive and informed set of initiatives. These include the maintenance and continued development of the City Palace Museum and the other projects preserving local culture through the celebration of festivals in the traditional manner, documenting and researching cultural practices and creating forums for knowledge transfer . All this is made particularly challenging because of a lack of good cultural preservation practice in India, making it necessary to develop suitable systems and methodologies before they can be implemented.

Celebration of 125th Anniversary of Shepherd Memorial Church of North India, Chetak Circle, Udaipur

During the first dozen years of Dr. James Shepherd’s ministry and work in this region, the little Christian community had grown to only some 50 souls. There was as yet no Church building and Dr. Shepherd, longed to have one, not only in interest of reverent worship but as a visible witness to the Gospel in the Mewar State. On 4th August 1889, a suitable piece of land was secured as a gracious gift from the Maharana Fateh Singh, 73rd Custodian of House of Mewar.  Dr Shepherd, regarding money for the Church building construction, he writes in one of his letters, “Our friends in the station are most helpful and ever willing to do what they can do us in the way of helping on the work”.  The then, state Engineer, Mr. Campbell Thompson took keenest interest in it. The building, though not a large one, is of exceptionally beautiful design. This church was opened on 5th July 1891.  In token of the respect and friendship, there was a large gathering at the first divine worship service, with which the Church was opened.  Maharana Fateh Singh and many of the leading nobles were present besides a humble folk. The worship service was conducted in the vernacular by Rev. John Traill.

Since then, this church continues to serve as a pivot for Christian community in the city for growing spiritually and collectively. At present, more than a thousand attend praise and worship of God on each Sunday and participate in Lord’s Supper and other religious sacraments regularly. In addition, church also extends his helping hand to poor and marginalised people in nearby villages through its social outreach from time to time. Currently, the Church is supervised by the presbyter in-charge Rev Raimson Victor under the overall administration of the Rajasthan Diocese of Church of India (CNI) which is located in Ajmer. Besides, the church remains opened throughout the weekdays for meditation and prayers for believers. The Shepherd Memorial Church also attracts many visitors to enjoy and appreciate its beauty and its architecture.
