While the Kalki Peeth remains in its original spot, a new statue of Lord Kalki will be crafted, and a special ceremony called Pran Pratishtha will be performed.

According to scriptures, when Lord Kalki incarnates, he will be presented with a white horse named 'Devdutt' by Lord Shiva, a sword by Lord Parshuram and education by Lord Brihaspati.
