RKT Construction Progress Oct 2016

RKT Construction Progress Oct 2016

The Radha Krishna Temple is designed to be a tall structure just a few inches shy of 69 feet in height. At this height it will be among the tallest buildings in Allen and will stand out for miles around. The temple will only have 2 stories of useable space. However, like jewels adorning a beautiful face, the temple will have 4 shikhars enhancing its beauty. The shikhars were designed and manufactured in India and will be shipped to the USA and readied for installation on the ground and then hoisted by crane onto the roof once the roof is constructed. The largest shikhar will be 37 feet high including its base, including the kalash itself which will extend over 9 feet in height. The laws of engineering dictate that the taller the building, the deeper and more substantial its foundation must be laid. The piers, under the foundation slab, extend 12 to 15 feet deep and are 2 feet in diameter. The piers extend into the hard bedrock of blue shale that lies deep below the surface.

For Texas land, which typically has quite expansive soils, geologically, Mother Nature by herself already provided quite a solid foundation for the temple to stand on. Just below the top soil is clay, high in lime (a calcium based substance) giving strength like calcium does to our bones. Below that is extremely dense blue shale. The temple design has evolved into a lofty and ever more beautiful structure requiring ever more profound depths that we must go to lay the groundwork for this heavenly home to Shri Radha Krishna. The effort to get us this far may not be so visible, like the foundation lying below the surface, but the meticulous care, patience, the uncountable hours of work, combined with the giving hearts of so many supporters will soon blossom into a magnificent temple!

    Indeed it’s going to be one of the most beautiful temples of Radha Krishna! What makes devotees more excited about this temple is that bigger the vicinity more people can visit at once and longer they can think about Yugal Sarkar and Kriplaluji Maharaj. Let’s pray to Radhey to give us an opportunity to be part of this temple and serve Her

      I agree! I am thrilled by the construction progress of this magnificent place of worship. I would like to express my appreciation to Radha-Krishna and Swamiji for the many blessings in life. I do not take for granted that their grace is the reason our community is blessed to have a temple. Let the spiritual journey continue….

      This temple will be a place where the devotees will savor the nectar of divine love for God, celebrate festivals with the DFW community, practice meditation and yoga, enrich the lives of children with rich Vedic culture, and simply enjoy the spiritual environment with family and friends.

    It’s nice to know the temple construction is going on in full swing and receive the regular updates on the progress. I hope it’s sooner rather than later that the abode of Shri Radha and Krishna will manifest for many devotees in Allen and also far and wide around the world to visit and feel inspired.
