This temple, higher than Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building built in Dubai, was to be ready in 2022, but now its construction work is expected to be completed in November.

The biggest, grandest and tallest temple in the world is being built in Vrindavan of Mathura. The name of this temple dedicated to Lord Krishna is Chandrodaya Mandir. This temple will be three times higher than Qutub Minar. Not only this, the foundation of this temple will be three times deeper than Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. The first block of the Chandrodaya temple being built on the Leela Bhoomi of Lord Krishna has been completed.

Akhilesh Yadav had laid the foundation stone

The foundation stone of the temple was laid by the then Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on March 8, 2014, at the Akshay Patra complex located on the Vrindavan-Chhatikara road. President Pranab Mukherjee laid the foundation stone on 16 November 2014. This temple, being built by ISKCON, Bangalore at a cost of about 700 crores, was conceived by Srila Prabhupada in 1972 when he came to Vrindavan during his visit to India.

First block ready

The first block of the temple has been completed. The idol of Krishna-Radha has also been installed in it. The 70-storey temple will have a height of 210 meters and is being built in the shape of a pyramid. This temple will be higher than Hassan Mosque of Morocco.

The foundation is 55 meters deep

Due to the height of the temple being 210 meters, special attention has been given to the foundation. The foundation is about 55 meters deep and the base is 12 meters high, while the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building in Dubai, has a foundation depth of 50 meters.

Taj Mahal can be seen through telescope

The height of the skyscraper temple can be estimated in such a way that the Taj Mahal of Agra can be seen from the telescope placed on the top of the temple. The distance from the temple to Taj Mahal is 80 kms. The initial three floors of the building will have temples of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and Radha, Krishna Balarama. The intensity of the lift applied in it will be eight meters per two seconds.

The temple will be a unique example of urban and modern style

In the temple being built in Dravidian, Nagara and modern style, Devlok and Devlilas can also be seen through 4D technology. An environment of natural forests will be created around the temple and there will be facilities like boating by preparing a replica of Yamuna ji.
