India to have World’s Tallest Temple!

Five years from today you will have another reason to travel to MATHURA! Not only pilgrims, tourists from all over the world will flock to come see the tallest temple in the world. Yes, the famous International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) has laid the foundation stone for a 700 ft temple. The temple will be spread across an area of 5.5 acres and will have 70 floors. (Your Vaishno Devi walk will finally serve as practice for something)

Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir as it will be called is expected to mark the birthplace of Lord Krishna on the world map.

Going back into Lord Krishna’s time!


  1. Recreation of forests of Braj to surround the temple. Historical texts tell that there were 12 such dense forests where Lord Krishna indulged in his favourite pastimes. (Will the ‘gopiyan’ be recreated as well?) A tour through these forests will also be set for the visitors.
  2. Recreation of Dwapara Yug in which Lord Krishna was born.
  3. Viewing tower on top of the building from where we will be able to enjoy panoramic views of Mathura, Agra and River Yamuna.
  4. Daily spiritual programs and celebration of all festivals connected with Lord Krishna.
  5. A helipad in the temple complex and accommodation for visitors.

Let’s just hope the project is completed in the promised timeline, you never know the makers of Burj Khalifa might construct something like the tallest shrine before 2019 and steal our thunder!

About - The interest in travel comes naturally to her, thanks to having been raised in a fauji family. She yearns to explore far-off places and travel to lands she has not seen. In her own admission, she tries real hard to be funny but fails miserably every single time. We feign laughter at her jokes whenever she gets her mom's-special cheese macaroni.
