Lucknow: Continuing its efforts to promote religious tourism in UP, the Yogi Adityanath government now plans to develop a Krishna Land, on the lines of Disneyland, in Mathura, the birthplace of Lord Krishna.

The state tourism department has been asked to develop a blueprint for the same so that the project could begin this year. The project will be funded by the World Bank under the tourism programme.
