The project took shape understanding the requirements of an ISKCON Centre at Mira Road , through various meetings with the very progressive and active trust. Primary concerns with the planning of the complex were the organization of its various parts as per the requirements as well as according to the dictates of Hindu temple architecture and Vastu Shastra. The campus was planned along with ancillary facilities, three major structures:

  • Temple Building

  • Ashram Block

  • Guest Housing

Temple Building : The Temple building held the central position as it contained the major religious functions as well as the Congregation areas and offices.

The Temple is on the first floor and has independent and central access from the front side. The first floor is reached by grand steps with statues of Jai and Vijay on its sides. The Stair is seen floating over a pond at the entrance which becomes the main feature as one approaches the temple. The Pond has a four elephants with water spouts as a welcoming gesture for the temple complex. As one climbs the stairs the first deity one sees is Lord Narsinha. Four shops at the entrance if the first level lead you to a 3500 sq ft Prayer hall. This Prayer hall has the capacity of holding XXXX devotees and is meant for major functions. The Hall also holds three sanctums for offering prayers, 1) Sri Gaur Nitai, 2) Sri Sri Radha GiridharIji and 3) Sri Jagannathji Baldevji Subhadraji. These sanctums have individual shikharas which are 26 meters from the ground level and designed in Orrisan style like Sri Jaganathpuri temple at Orrisa. 16 exhibition displays are planned on both sides of the prayer hall which are 8 meters high and viewing gallery around it to give the space a grand look.

A Statue of Sri Prabhupadji with an Umbrella (Chatri) above is placed in front of Sri Sri Radha Giridhariji between two entrances. Walls, flooring and ceiling will be designed artistically to recreate the atmosphere of Vrindavan. The Building will be of RCC construction with Stone cladding to walls from exterior wall from out sides and marble finished from inside. Jaipur style architectural details are used for exterior work. Artistic symbols and motifs of Lord Krishna will be carved in pink stones over these exterior walls. Statue like 10 incarnations of Lord Krishna, Scenes of Vrindavan where Gopikas are dancing, statues of peacocks, cows and dancing elephants will be carved around the prayer hall. In the entire temple is designed as a Triveni sangam (Golden triangle of temple architecture) of temple architectures from North-West style, Jaipur style and Orrisan style of temple architecture.

Two emergency exists are provides for free passage of devotees in crowded functions. Adequate parking area is provided for office staff and pilgrim's vehicles.
