Let’s view the tallest temple future development
Only few of us know Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir right!!! Its wonderful to know that this is the world’s tallest temple that is under-construction at Vrindavan, Mathura, India. It is of the cost of 300 crore i.e.,US$45 million ,it will be one of the most expensively built temple in world by ISKCON.
Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir temple has a footprint of about 5 acres and rises to a height of about 700 feet and a built-up area of 5,40,000 sq. ft.The temple is well designed to be vibrant with festivals and religious activities throughout the year.
The Chandrodaya Temple being built in Vrindavan is a tall order i.e., at 700ft,will be three times the height of Delhi’s Qutub Minar. And what is more unique about the project is that the temple is being constructed both in terms of funding and logistical support by people of several faiths and nationalities.
Its really greatful to say that this temple is a mix of faiths, expertise and nationalities. A project by Bengaluru devotees of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKON), the temple is being worked on by 25 specialist consultants from across the world. The core architectural team itself comprises of people from different faiths. Its very very Pleasure to thank them,What a Heartful Hardwork ,I think this is only possible to the allocated hardworking people.
Hardwork with Heartful devotion Definitely Reaches to heights,Can be Proved firmly by this Designing of Temple.
Let’s know the key people :
Jagminder Singh, a Sikh, leads the principal architect’s team, while Misam Imam heads the structural design team. Chris Meering, a Christian, is in-charge of the team handling vertical transport.
Narsimha Dass is the senior vice-president and project director.
Lets know what Mr.Narsimha Dass announced…..He said that Srila Prabhupada, while beginning the ISKCON movement in 1965, made clear that this was for an international society comprising of all caste, creed, religion, nationality and beyond boundaries. With this ideology, the temple at Vrindavan is coming up and is open for all,” Explaining further, he said Krishna had never meant the message of Bhagavad Gita only for Hindus, and was for everyone who believed.
“This has been the driving spirit of ISKON…even in the construction of the temple, people from all faith including Muslim, Hindu, Christian or Sikh are involved and this makes it a structure of international acceptance,” he added.
You know !!! The Construction Of The Planned at a cost Rs 700 crore, the temple will have four halls – one for Acharya Srila Prabhupada, the founder of ISKON, one for Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and Nityananda Prabhu, one for Radha Krishna and the Astha Sakhis, and one for Sri Krishna Balaram, Dass said. A devotee will have to walk 1.2 kilometer to reach the room for ‘darshan’.
The Project Director Said that Once its constructed, it will be the tallest and largest religious structure in India covering an area of 5 acres. Piling work will continue till next Holi after which the work for raising the tower will begin.
The Temple’s Beginning Point ,Month and Year can be seen below::::
The temple’s foundation stone was laid by chief minister Akhilesh Yadav in March 2014. Later that October, President Pranab Mukherjee visited the site for the Ananth Sesh Sthapna poojan. Work for the temple finally began in 2015, with the deadline set for 2022.
Spirit of working with such a diverse collection of experts on such a colossal project has many challenges.
Misam imam said that they are done with the concept phase and are now working on schematic details with focus on durability of the structure over several centuries. As head of structural design, he said that the trick is in figuring out solutions based on materials available in India.
“Another challenge is to work with people who view it spiritually,”Misam Imam added this.
One way around building a 700ft structure is to build it in components and then put it together. “It is more of an assembled structure, hence all features are to be incorporated and ideas from 25 different specialist consultants are being clubbed for better results,” said Singh, the principal architect who has been part of the project since day one.
Apart from the main temple structure, the compound will be surrounded by verdant forests, clear water lakes, waterfalls from hillocks – all recreated from descriptions in the Srimad Bhagvatam, Dass said. Other attractions will include a Yamuna Creek, Bhagvad Gita Expo and a Krishna Heritage Museum.
Wonderful to know that …this is regarded as the first LEED Gold certified temple building, it is being designed to have minimum radiative heating of the internal environment. The structural design for this has been given to M/s Thornton Tomasetti, led by Leonard Joseph who is presently designing the Kingdom Tower at Jeddah, the world’s tallest upcoming structure.
The project is planned to be more spiritual than religious.
Ultimately ,The project’s spiritual association reflects lot of energy and is a memorable experience for the respected hardworking labours ,heads and each and every key people,Really Hatsoff to them…. All …..We shall All Express Our Admiration ….
