On the auspicious occasion of Janmashtami, Lord Krishna’s birthday, the RCC piling work has begun on the construction site. Skyscrapers of these dimensions use piles to secure the foundation to the ground. Due to the soft nature of soil, the temple skyscraper requires piles of 1.2m (4ft) diameter, going as deep as 60m - which is equivalent to 20 floors in a regular building! In comparison, the Qutub Minar is 72.5m tall. More than 500 piles are required for the temple foundation. The pile work was inaugurated in the auspicious presence of Shree Guru Sharanandaji Maharaj and Mrs Hema Malini, Member of Parliament, Mathura on Janmashtami Day, Monday 18th August 2014.
