World's tallest religious skyscraper


Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir - world's tallest religious skyscraper: a 700-foot-tall Hindu temple in India.
Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir in Uttar Pradesh will be bigger than Vatican City's St Peter's Basilica and rise higher than Ulm Minster when completed. Indian practice InGenious Studio and structural consultant Thornton Tomasetti have designed the temple-cum-cultural center, which includes a theme park, for the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.



The earthquake-proof building's tiered silhouette is reminiscent of a rocket ship, rising 70 stories in the air.
A capsule elevator will run through the height of the structure, whisking visitors up to a viewing deck. The ride doubles as a light and sound experience, taking people through the planetary systems of the universe, as laid out in Vedic literature.
