Construction of Radha Krishna Temple Walls

Wall Construction at Radha Krishna Temple of Dallas in Allen, TX

Construction of Radha Krishna Temple Walls

WALLS ARE ABOUT TO BE SET IN PLACE!

More than likely, you may not have noticed the temple walls if you have driven by the Radha Krishna Temple construction site in Allen, TX.  However,  they are there – just lying down! Most importantly, very soon they will finally be lifted into place!

To better appreciate the work that went in to build the walls, we’d like to share a bit about how they were built.  The construction of exterior temple walls consist mainly of thick concrete panels that have been made right on site.  The walls are a little over 7” thick and the smallest one weighs in at nearly 15,000 lbs. The steel reinforcing alone in each panel weighs thousands of pounds.

Before wall construction could begin, large concrete casting beds had to be built since the wall panel themselves are over 36 feet in length.  Then the concrete workers built out wooden forms, giving shape to the walls and their window and door openings on top of the casting beds.

A great deal of engineering  work went into the panel design and a lot of accuracy into the execution to achieve proper location and sizing of openings and placement of steel reinforcement.

Dozens of concrete trucks brought in concrete that was pumped and poured into the forms.  Once the concrete dried and hardened, we have had to patiently wait for some time for the panels to cure to sufficient strength to be safely lifted and set in place without breakage.

This will be an exciting month for the temple construction as we finally see the walls set in place and the basic structure of the temple really begins to take shape.

    The wall stands firmly, signals a beautiful construction of the wonderful Radha Krishna temple. I believe, it is the grace of God on the devotees, at this place, to help them build their spiritual foundation firmly. Very nice to find Shri Radha Krishna temple here.

    Thank you for the status update. I did not know that constructing a wall and casting beds was such an enormous task. With each construction addition to the Radha Krishna Temple, my heart fills with joy at the thought of having all the programs at the temple itself. Counting the days until then.

    Looks like Shri Krishna with help of Shree Radhey is building home for themselves, so that devotees near that temple can come and visit Him when they feel like meeting Him. More we take part in building home for RadhaKrishna, the more we get Radhey’s grace! Jai Shree Radhey!!

    This life of material existence is just like hard wood and if we can carve Shree Radha Krishna out of it, that is the biggest success of our life.

    Cannot wait to see the beautiful temple of Supreme God who has taken the form of Radha and Krishna in his Divine pastimes. I am sure this will be a second home for the entire family. For Kids and Younger generation it will give the opportunity to touch base with Hindu Culture and Scriptures. And also for adults will get the opportunity to get the Divine knowledge and wisdom by participating in Satsangs and Enlightening Talks by Saints. This is the beautiful temple where we can get our devotion enhanced, minds and thoughts elevated.
