Prime Minister Narendra Modi's recent visit to Sambhal district in Uttar Pradesh holds significance as he inaugurated the Shri Kalki Dham Temple. This significant event was marked by the presence of various dignitaries, saints, and religious leaders. The temple has also drawn attention due to its association with the concept of the Kalki Avatar, believed to be the 24th incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Krishnam, the chairperson of the Shri Kalki Dham Nirman Trust, invited PM Modi to lay the foundation stone of the temple. However, this invitation came just days before Krishnam's expulsion from the Congress for "anti-party remarks." PM Modi also addressed the gathering during his visit to Uttar Pradesh.


Kalki Avatar

According to Hindu religious texts, Lord Vishnu takes incarnations to restore righteousness and the Kalki Avatar is prophesied to be the 24th incarnation, emerging at the end of the Kali Yuga. The scriptures describe 24 avatars of Lord Vishnu, with 23 having already descended on Earth. Kalki Peeth will remain in its original place, but a new idol of Lord Kalki will be crafted. Pran Pratishtha ceremony, similar to the Ram Mandir Consecration Ceremony, will be conducted.

Kalki Temple Significance

The Kalki Dham Temple holds special significance as the first 'Dham' where a temple was built before the God’s incarnation. It features ten sanctums, each symbolizing one of Lord Vishnu's ten incarnations, making it a unique temple.

Ten sanctums within the temple symbolise the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu.

When Will Lord Kalki Be Born?

The birth of Lord Kalki is predicted to take place when Guru, Sun, and Moon align in Pushya Nakshatra, on the fifth day of the Shukla Paksha of the Sawan month.
