Agra’s Jama Masjid Metro Station Renamed

Why in News?

The Uttar Pradesh metro has renamed the Jama Masjid station in Agra to Mankameshwar Mandir.

Key Points

  • The metro service on the priority corridor is expected to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi between 25 and 28 February.
  • The Jama Masjid station was the third and final underground metro station on the priority corridor of six stations from the Taj Mahal to the Jama Masjid.
  • According to the Mythological stories, Mankameshwar Mandir had been established by Lord Shiva himself in the Dwapar Yug when he had come to Mathura for the darshan of Lord Krishna’s child form. Shiva had stayed at this site on the way to Mathura from Kailash and vowed to establish a Shivalinga if he was able to hold Krishna in his arms.
