Temple of the Vedic Planetarium - ( Sri Caitanya Chandrodaya Mandir ), Mayapur, West Bengal

ISKCON Temple-Planetarium Theater of the Vedic Science and Cosmology

Project: Temple complex + Vedic Planetarium & Science Center/Theatre
Client: ISKCON (Chairman Ambarisa Das)
Contractor: Gammons India Limited
Completion Time Frame: 2016 - 50th Anniversary of ISKCON
Status: Completion of 3rd museum floor and ground level stairways







The Temple of the Vedic Planetarium, a project that has been ISKCON’s evasive super-goal for over two decades, is finally coming to fruition.


What’s so special about the TOVP? Well, it was back in the 1970s that ISKCON’s founder Srila Prabhupada first expressed his desire to build a Vedic Planetarium at his society’s headquarters in Mayapur, India. “Within the planetarium we will construct a huge, detailed model of the universe as described in the text of the fifth canto of Srimad Bhagavatam,” he said.

Of course, as with everything he did, Srila Prabhupada was acting in fulfillment of the desires of previous spiritual teachers. A grand temple for Mayapur was predicted by none other than Lord Nityananda, the most intimate associate of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, some five hundred years ago. Speaking to Srila Jiva Goswami, the Lord said:
“When our Lord Chaitanya disappears, by His desire, the Ganges will swell. The Ganges water will almost cover Mayapur for a hundred years, and then the water will again recede. For some time only the place will remain, devoid of houses. Then again, by the Lord’s desire, this place will again be manifest, and the devotees will build temples of the Lord. One exceedingly wonderful temple (adbhuta-mandira) will appear from which Gauranga’s eternal service will be preached everywhere.”

Srila Prabhupada wanted this great temple to have a specific look. In July 1976, during a visit to Washington D.C., he instructed Yadubara Dasa and Visakha Dasi to take photographs of the domed Capitol building there, as a basis for the TOVP. And in the early days of ISKCON in London, he gave further detailed instructions on what different parts of the temple should look like, directing many senior devotees make drawings and models of the building.

The Temple of the Vedic Planetarium will be a stunning spritiual monument, dwarfing the already huge Srila Prabhupada Samadhi Mandir and featuring three giant gold domes. The middle, and largest, dome will house three different altars: one for the Gaudiya Vaishnava line of teachers and disciples, ranging from the Six Goswamis of the 15th century all the way to Srila Prabhupada; one for the Pancha-tattva of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and his associates; and one for Sri-Sri Radha-Madhava and their eight principal gopi servants.

The mass with its green core in the center and landscaped riverside in the front, ensures that eachapartment has a green view.

It has a mix of 3 Bedroom apartments, Duplex Units, Exclusive Apartments and Penthouses. A total 750 parking spots can be accommodated on ground and basement levels for its inhabitants. In addition, all the terraces at different levels feature gardens that provide an interesting dimension to this eco-project.

The facade has an honest checkerboard pattern that exemplifies each apartment's puncture with a balcony. This repetitive element lends an exaggerated detail aesthetic to the whole structure - that plays with the notion of a 'mass' in coordination and contradiction.

Archohm got the opportunity to work alongside - MVRDV - a dutch architecture practice, on this project. The design evolved through multiple workshops and forums. Collaborative in nature, this project is an interesting mix of the Dutch sensibilities and the Indian design vocabulary. The 'uncommercial' aesthetic of this commercial real estate project is what sets it out amongst others projects of its nature.

Hi! What defines as "smaller cities" here?
Perhaps we just start underneath the top 10 largest cities in the country (as #11, Lucknow, was posted here, ~2.8mln)? This information should be included in post #1 then, at best with a map.

Then only these are excluded from the thread: Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Pune, Surat, Kolkata, Jaipur. Do they all have an independent thread here?

Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai and Ahmedabad are the top 7 metros in India and have independent threads here. For other cities, independent threads are not needed right now IMO.

Reg smaller cities, well I haven't set any definitions or guidelines for 'smaller cities'. The main purpose of this thread was to showcase the development projects and constructions in cities and towns other than the top 7 or 8 metros.

I will post a map soon.

PS: India have 60+ cities with a population of one million or more.

India is still a developing country. Although there is some good development happening in cities like Gurugram and Mumbai.
