Currently under construction in the sacred town of Vrindavan, the Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir temple is poised to become the “world’s tallest” religious monument. With a height of approximately 210m and spanning over a built-up area of 50,167m2, the temple is said to be a “monumental endeavour” by ISKCON Bangalore.
The temple complex spans over 105m2, and will house 12 forests and four temples, each named after the twelve gardens of Braja, as described in Lord Sri Krishna’s tales. These forests will replicate the gardens from the stories, complete with orchards, waterfalls, lotus ponds and artificial hillocks. The temple’s tallest structure will feature four temples dedicated to Krishna Radha, Krishna Balram, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and Swami Prabhupada.
Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir’s management envisioned a sound experience that would “seamlessly blend with the sacred ambience”, ensuring clarity and divine harmony for every chant, hymn and discourse.
The vast temple premises presented unique acoustic challenges. Ensuring consistent sound quality across different architectural spaces, while preserving the temple’s sanctity and aesthetics, was paramount. VMT was tasked with integrating technology without disrupting the spiritual ambiance.
VMT selected two of Martin Audio’s WPM 6.5-inch passive two-way line array and iKON iK81, with a CDD6W. Also selected was Waves’ eMotion LV1. British Acoustics’ P 12H, PW Six and ID 2000 amplifier were chosen, as well as OSL’s O 5D, a vocal microphone tailored for deep vocals.
“I thank Jeff Mandot and the VMT team from the bottom of my heart for providing a mesmerising audio setup for our temple,” said Bhurijana Dasa, part of the temple’s management team.
“In an industry where standards and expectations are constantly evolving, the installation at Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir stands out as a benchmark. It’s not just about the technology, but how it’s integrated to serve the venue’s unique needs. This project has set a new industry standard, and I’m proud to say that VMT is at the forefront of such innovations,” said Jeff Mandot, national sales manager, VMT.
