70-Story Religious Structure Rising in India
The International Society for Krishna Consciousness is building the 70-story Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir in Vrindavan, India, which, upon completion, will become one of the tallest religious structures in the world, The New Indian Express reported. Situated on 5.5 acres, the structure will boast a capsule elevator to take riders through the planetary systems spoken about in Vedic literature amid a “stunning light-and-sound show.” The ascent will end at a viewing gallery offering impressive views of the surrounding countryside. The earthquake-resistant structure will contain a temple, heritage center and for-sale residences. The structural consultant is Thornton Tomasetti, who designed some of the world’s tallest buildings.
40-Tower Residential Project Taking Shape in Mumbai
