The sun is shining. It’s been a long winter, but warmth is on the horizon. As the season tips toward Spring, so the progress of the main dome is assuming a fresh direction.
The second ring of the main dome has begun. This supporting structure is an epic coil of over 200 pieces of steel designed to fit together. The entire process involves intricate calculations accounting for forces such as counter-weight and weather hazards. The rising ring will form the base of the new temple’s centerpiece, the main dome, which will be finished in tile work.
As the second tier begins, the actual magnitude of the dome begins to become surreal. It is the largest dome compared to any of its religious architectural rivals. An incredible landmark appearing distinctly on the Mayapur landscape.
