World’s Tallest Sri Krishna Temple to Come Up in Vrindavan in India

World's tallest Sri Krishna Temple coming up in Vrindavan in India will be 700 feet tall when completed. Named ‘Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir’, the temple will be built at an estimated cost of Rs 300 crore.
The new Indian express reports 
President Pranab Mukherjee performed 'Ananta Shesha Sthapana Puja' at the temple on November 15, 2014, whose foundation stone for the temple was laid on March 16 this year. The idea of this ceremony is that the entire temple building will be resting on the hoods of 'Ananta Shesha' (snake) which is very auspicious.
The 70-storey temple will feature a capsule elevator which will take visitors from the ground level to the 700 ft tall viewing gallery giving an immersive 3D sound and light experience of the different planetary systems described in the vedic literatures, project organisers said.
A look-alike of the verdant forests of Vrindavan will be recreated around this magnificent temple from descriptions in the Srimad Bhagavatam; sprawling 26 acres it will consist of the twelve forests (dvadashakanana) of Braj, they said. 
The 'Krishna Lila Theme Park' attractions will include themed story telling areas, musical fountains, garden lawn and water features, Yamuna creek for boating experience, Braj heritage village and goshala to recreate the atmosphere of Vrindavan of Lord Krishna. 
The project, which will be completed in five years time, will have Krishna Heritage museum, Bhagavad Gita Expo, lecture halls and centre for Krishna heritage studies. 
Social development programmes that are part of this project include increasing the support for 'Akshaya Patra' mid-day meal program for feeding children studying in government schools of Mathura district. About 1.65 lakh children are fed everyday under the programme.

The organisers will undertake welfare programs for the widows of Vrindavan, carry out restoration, up-gradation and rejuvenation of the important sites of Braj, restoration of river Yamuna to her original and pristine glory and 'Goshala' for demonstrating cow protection.
