Work on world`s tallest Krishna temple begins on August 18
Agra: Work on the world`s tallest Krishna temple at 210 metres will begin on Janmashtami, August 18, on 70 acres of land in Vrindavan.
This was announced at a press conference here on Tuesday evening by Kolkata-based Infinity group chairman Ravindra Chamaria.
The temple will encompass a huge hall for religious gatherings, a museum displaying the "Leelas of Sri Krishna," a study-centre-cum library, a Krishna Leela Park and the 12 forests of Braj where Krishna frolicked.
The Bangalore branch of Iskcon is collaborating on the project.
The temple complex will also have a residential colony with luxury villas and apartments in 11 towers.
Chamaria said those who come to visit the Taj Mahal will now have an added attraction to stay longer to pay a visit to Vrindavan.
