We wish to make a bold statement about the importance of Lord Sri Krishna and His divine mission in the world, using the contemporary architectural language. A tall, imposing skyscraper temple should proclaim the status of Vrindavan as one of India’s spiritual capitals. This should attract the attention of the world’s thinkers, leaders and other enquiring minds to know more about Lord Sri Krishna and His soothing, healing message for a harried world.
Vrindavan is revered as holy town of Krishna temples. Some accounts describe that there are as many as 5,000 Krishna temples – big, medium and small; ancient, medieval and recent. Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir is poised to become the tallest, grandest and largest religious structure in India. The temple has a footprint of about 5 acres and rises to a height of about 700 feet (210 metres or 70 floors). From the ground level, a capsule elevator will rise up through the temple core, taking visitors through different planetary systems in the universe as described in the Vedic literatures, through an immersive sound, light and diorama show. The capsule elevator will finally reach the visitors to the Viewing Gallery at 700 feet for a breathtaking panoramic view of Braj Mandal.
The temple has a footprint of about 5 acres and rises to a height of about 700 feet (210 metres or 70 floors). The temple is planned to be an effervescent platform and vibrant with cultural, spiritual and social services throughout the year. A look-alike of the verdant forests of Vrindavan will be recreated around this magnificent temple with varieties of lush vegetation, green pastures, elegant vistas of fruit bearing trees, flower laden creepers serenaded by bird songs, clear water lakes with lotuses and lilies and waterfalls that tumble from small artificial hillocks - all recreated from descriptions in the Srimad Bhagavatam and other source books of Lord Sri Krishna - to transport the visitors to Krishna's times in Vrindavan. While the Yamuna creek provides a boating opportunity for the visitors and the Krishna Lila attractions in the forest provide an entertaining experience for all the family members, the Bhagavad Gita Expo will ignite the minds and invigorate the intellect with the stupendous wisdom given by Lord Sri Krishna that forms the bedrock of the culture and the philosophy of life in India. The Krishna Heritage Museum will showcase the rich heritage and artistic celebration of Lord Sri Krishna in diverse cultures of India, practiced and perfected over thousands of years.
