This past month has been eventful at the TOVP. There have been meetings with managers, architects, engineers, pujaris and artists, all coming together to make critical decisions about designs and construction.
Each department brought their own unique perspective. One of the most discussed topics were the altars. Placement of the deities and murtis were visualized with the help of prototypes and scaled models. Considerations included room for pujaris to manoeuvre, location of altars within allotted space and visibility of deities for pilgrims. The meetings continued and the team of professionals made decisions ranging from the structural integrity of the temple to the future of several architectural components of the building.
Since the experts and consultants working at the TOVP are spread across India, it can be difficult for everyone to gather together. However, when they do have the opportunity to convene in Mayapur, their combined talent and enthusiasm erupt into a passion to build an unparallelled temple.
