As you come up the main staircase of the TOVP towards the temple room you will be greeted by two gigantic elephant sculptures standing side by side in front of an immense, 30’ tall, four column entranceway pillar.
There are two such pillars, each with two accompanying elephants and four interconnected columns. The elephant, hasti in Sanskrit, symbolizes wealth, strength, wisdom and royalty, and characterize the Vedic standard of abundance, along with cows.
Pictured here are the TOVP elephant sculptures in their current state of progress.
