Banganga Tank set for makeover, Ram Kund to be revived

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) in Mumbai plans to uplift the Banganga Tank, a heritage precinct, to attract tourists and facilitate religious rituals. The plan includes reviving an 11th-century Ram Kund, removing encroachments, creating public amenities, and restoring the heritage look. The project is estimated to cost ₹12 crore, with ₹5 crore from the BMC and the rest from various sources. The tender will be issued soon.

Banganga Tank attracts 10,000 devotees on Kartik Purnima. They also gather here annually during Pitrupaksha, for ‘pind daan’ (a ritual performed in the memory of ancestors). (Kunal Patil/HT Photo)
