The Uttar Pradesh Public Development Works department plans to build a 500-kilometer-long Parshuram Circuit in the state, passing through six districts and connecting five key pilgrimage sites for devotees. The politics surrounding Lord Parshuram were at their peak prior to the 2022 UP state assembly elections, with the Samajwadi Party installing a 'Farsa' of Lord Parshuram to attract Brahmin community voters, while the BJP promised to develop Lord Parshuram's birthplace.

The PWD department, led by minister Jitin Prasada in the Yogi 2.0 government, is now developing the Parshuram Teerth circuit. The circuit will link Naimish Dham, Maharishi Dadhichi Sthal Misrikh, Gola Gokarannath, Gomti Udgam, Purnagiri Maa's temple, Baba Neem Korori Dham, and Jalalabad, Lord Parshuram's birthplace.

The Parshuram Teerth Circuit will pass through six Uttar Pradesh districts, including Sitapur, Lakhimpur, Pilibhit, Bareilly, Shahjahanpur, and Farrukhabad. This circuit is more than 500 kilometres long. This corridor's tender process has also been completed. The entire Parshuram Teerth Circuit will include descriptions and illustrations of all pilgrimage sites.

Jitin Prasad, the UP PWD Minister, had requested that Lord Parshuram's birthplace in Jalalabad, Shahjahanpur, be designated as a "tourist destination," which CM Yogi promptly granted.

Prasada has paid several visits to Lord Parashuram's birthplace in the last few days. After consulting with the Mahant and priests of Lord Parashuram's birthplace, as well as many seers, including priests of Naimishdham and Gola Gokarannath, it was decided to prepare the outline of this corridor and make a proposal with the assistance of the NHAI.

Following a meeting with Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, this proposal was also discussed. The tender process for some parts of Naimish Dham has already been completed. At the same time, work will begin as soon as the centre issues a green signal.
