Appeal for donation towards Renovation and construction of new rooms at Sohrab Baug Dharamshala, Navsari
We appeal for donation for renovation and construction of four additional rooms at our Sohrab Baug Dharamshala, Navsari.
Sohrab Baug Dharamshala and Community hall were established in 1868 (Eighteen Sixty Eight) and is situated in Tarota Bazar, Bamji Street, Navsari, 100 meters from Pak Aatash Behram. It has 10 rooms, out of which 7 rooms are with attached toilet-bathroom. On the ground floor there is a Community hall, which is being used for Jashans, Navjote and Marriage ceremonies.
Parsis from out station come to Navsari for visit to Pak Aatash Behram, for Navjote or Marriage ceremony and for personal visit stay here in Zoroastrian Environment. We also provide facilities for Bath-Toilets who do not stay overnight but only come to visit Aatash Behram.
Moreover we have decided to provide an Elevator so that aged / elderly persons can also take advantage of Dharamshala.
As the building requires repairing, renovation, painting etc, we have retained heritage Architect Mr. Jamsheed Bhiwandiwala of Mumbai for planning of renovation and supervision and he has given estimate of Rs. 40,00,000/- (Rupees Forty Lacs only) for the said work, including construction of four additional rooms.
We are unable to undertake this renovation and construction work from our own funds. Hence we request your goodselves to give us donation towards this expenditure.
The renovation and new construction work is already started. We took the liberty to be inspired by bathroom renovations Toronto company “Tileon” the work is underway and we are most excited.
Cheque / D.D. may be issued in the name of “Sohrab Baug Trust” and may be sent at the following address.
