Cheonggyecheon is an over 8 km-long stream flowing west to east through downtown Seoul, and then meeting Jungnangcheon, which connects to the Han River and empties into the Yellow Sea. Several decades ago, Cheonggyecheon was covered with concrete for roads and even public transportation system was later built over it.
The Seoul Metropolitan Government undertook a restoration of the stream in 2005 and renewed it. The Cheonggyecheon restoration project had the purpose of preserving the unique identity of the natural environment and the historic resources in the central business district of Seoul, and to reinforce the surrounding business area with information technology, international affairs and digital industries.
Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party also posted pictures of his visit on Twitter.
"Delhi CM @ArvindKejriwal & Urban Development Minister @SatyendarJain visit the Cheonggyecheon stream in downtown Seoul. Cheonggyecheon stream was a dirty polluted stream stretched around 11 km, said to be urban regeneration marvel as it is now a tourist hotspot," AAP tweeted.
"CM @ArvindKejriwal is in Seoul for Twin City Agreement b/w Delhi & Seoul on Pollution, Water, Public Transport, Education & Urban Devp. If Cheonggyecheon stream in downtown Seoul can be regenerated to a tourist hotspot, why can't river Yamuna & drains in Delhi be revived ?" the party said.
Kejriwal is scheduled to leave Seoul on September 14. Sarang festival began on September 6 and ends on September 16.
A Carnatic music concert was also held at the Yonsei University on its 100th anniversary on Wednesday.
