Sambalpur: A 125-year-old cow shelter in front of Samleswari temple here is being shifted for the beautification and development of the 16th century shrine.

The shifting of Sri Krushna Goshala began on Friday to pave way for the implementation of Odisha government’s Samaleswari Temple Area Management and Local Economy Initiatives (SAMALEI) scheme, Sambalpur Municipal Corporation commissioner Pradeep Kumar Sahu said.

The goshala was set up in 1896 by a group of philanthropists to look after and provide care to cows, reported PTI.

The shifting of the shelter which now houses 500 cows will take around four days and the new one will be set up at Putapali area of Sambalpur town.

The land at Putapali measuring 50 acres was donated to the goshala by a person many years ago.
