"When constructed it will be the tallest temple of India and one of the tallest in the world. The iconic architecture will harmoniously blend elements of both Indian temple architecture and modern architecture," said vice-president, ISKCON, Bangalore and president of the Vrindavan project Chanchalapathi Dasa. 
The project, which has been conceived by Madhu Pandit Dasa, president of ISKCON, Bangalore, will feature a grand temple of Lord Krishna.
A look-alike of the verdant forests of Vrindavan will be recreated around the temple. Spread over a sprawling 26 acres, it will consist of twelve forests of Braj to transport the visitors to Krishna's time in Vrindavan. 
"It is a Rs. 300 crore project which will be funded by donation from the devotees of Krishna. Once the shilanyas is done, we will start the excavation and foundation work," Dasa said.
"From the ground level, a capsule elevator will take the visitors through different planetary systems in the universe, in an impressive sound and light show," Dasa said.
