Vrindavan: The holy town of Vrindavan will be home to a unique and world's tallest Lord Krishna temple which will be built at an estimated cost of Rs 300 crore here in the next five years.
'Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir' will have a height of 700 feet or 210 metres, thrice the height of 72.5-metre Qutub Minar in Delhi.
The temple is conceptualised by devotees of International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), Bangalore.
President Pranab Mukherjee performed 'Ananta Shesha Sthapana Puja' at the temple, whose foundation stone for the temple was laid on March 16 this year. The idea of this ceremony is that the entire temple building will be resting on the hoods of 'Ananta Shesha' (snake) which is very auspicious. The 70-storey temple will feature a capsule elevator which will take visitors from the ground level to the 700 ft tall viewing gallery giving an immersive 3D sound and light experience of the different planetary systems described in the vedic literatures, project organisers said.
