There is a rumor going around that the ToVP is going to be finished by 2014, but in actuality it is going to be done closer to 2016.
I, Mandakini Dasi, sat down with the managing director, Sadbhuja Das, to clear the air and get the facts on the real timeline.
Mandakini Dasi: “What are your thoughts on these rumors and what words do you have for the public waiting for the project to be finished?”
Sadbhuja Das: “A few years ago when we were in the designing process we were hoping that the ToVP would open in 2014, but that wasn’t set in stone. As the design became more intricate and subtle the time line was set back about 2 more years. For the record our goal is to have the deities installed and the inner temple completed for 2016 – ISKCON 50th anniversary!”
