Celebrating 352 yrs of the founding of Anandpur Sahib (1665-2017)
Sri Anandpur Sahib – White City of India
The entire city of Anandpur Sahib was painted white to commemorate 350 years of the founding which was officially celebrated on 19th June, 2015.
The Foundation has undertaken some rural road building works to connect different habitations in the Lodhipur village area adjoining Sri Anandpur Sahib. So far approximately 2 .5 kms of unpaved roads have been laid by leveling land and clearing undergrowth which had made the village roads unserviceable. This is an ongoing project on the request of the village panchayat of Lodhipur.
On the request of the village panchayat of Lodhipur through a resolution, the Foundation is undertaking to build a causeway over the Charan Ganga channel to allow passage of traffic between different habitations of the village who have to wade through the water in low tide to connect on both sides of the channel. This is an ongoing project.
The Anandpur Sahib Heritage Foundation has conceptualised a programme to retrain rural women in traditional crafts such as weaving, pottery, shoe making, fabric dyeing and to undertake the marketing of products produced by this programme. An effort to involve a suitable NGO trained in skill development is underway. This is an ongoing project.
