Sri Sri Mayapur Chandrodaya Mandir or the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium, also called ISKCON Mayapur, is a Hindu mandir and the headquarters of ISKCON, located in Mayapur, West Bengal, India. The temple is dedicated to Hindu deities Radha Madhava. Construction of the temple was started in 2010 and when completed it will be the world's largest Hindu temple and one of the tallest temples. Located 130 km (81 mi) from Kolkata, it was originally aimed to be completed in the year 2022, however delay in construction due to the COVID-19 pandemic may push the opening date to somewhere in late 2023.
Sri Sri Maya Chandrodaya Mandir is inspired by the vision of ISKCON founder Srila Prabhupada and the design of the United States Capitol building. In July 1976, Srila Prabhupada expressed his preference for the exterior style of the temple. Accordingly, the ISKCON authorities started construction of the temple.
The construction of the temple started in 2010.
The construction of the temple was expected to be completed in 2016. Unfortunately, the construction of the temple was not completed in 2016 due to construction delays. It was further delayed due to COVID-19 pandemic. As of now, the temple is anticipated to open for visitors between July and August 2023.
