Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday laid the foundation stone of a project to build a 70-storey temple in Vrindavan – Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir — which, when finished, is billed to be the tallest shrine in the world.
While the concept of the grand temple was conceived by in-house devotees of ISCKON Bangalore, the structural design has been outsourced to a US-based company, TEC Engineering. The temple, with a traditional Nagra architecture at the entrance, will have elements of a glass façade that would stretch to the 70th floor.
“The temple will change the skyline of Vrindavan. After entering the temple, there will be a capsule lift that will take visitors to the 70th floor. During their journey to the topmost floor, there will be a cosmology exhibit with 3D effects. It will be a whole new immersion experience. People would travel through the planets to reach the top.

There will be telescopes placed on the top floor from where people can see entire Vrindavan,” Chanchalapathi Dasa, vice-chairman of the Akshaya Patra Foundation said.
The temple premises will also have a theme park for visitors. Around the temple, the twelve forests of Braj will be recreated. Specific vegetation of each forest will be artificially grown.
The team is also going to recreate the Yamuna across the temple and visitors will be taken around in a boat. For those who wish to walk, there will be a path build for a skywalk. A night safari will also be organised by the temple.
