Dear Devotees, Donors and Visitors,
We are extremely happy to announce the launch of a new website, tovp360.org, which offers a virtual tour through the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium, one of the largest temples in the world.
The virtual-reality panoramas in this site will show you every nook and corner of the magnificent temple. From 24 different places, you can see all around you and look both above and below to get a feel of this sacred space. Walk in and around the temple, from the temple rooms up to the roofs and domes. There are even 360 degree bird’s-eye views from above the temple that show the whole Mayapur Project.
All of the viewpoints are interlinked and connected so that you can navigate from one to the next with a single click. They work together seamlessly to give you a complete picture of this massive temple’s construction. It’s vast scale and fine architectural details are sure to impress. Please share the site far and wide so that as many people as possible can experience and become aware of the TOVP. As it is said, a picture is worth a thousand words.
We would like to thank Thakur Saranga Prabhu (disciple of H.H. Devamrita Swami) and Sarvasukha Prabhu (disciple of H.H. Bhaktivaibhava Swami), who have been instrumental in creating this website by engaging their skills of photography, panoramic imaging and web design in the service of devotees all around the world to give them a complete, immersive experience of visiting the TOVP. Their wish is that devotees and donors will feel connected with the project and can see how their valuable contributions are being used in Krishna’s service.
Thakur Saranga Prabhu has moved to Mayapur from New Zealand and plans to keep the site updated as the temple construction progresses, so that everyone can see in virtual reality how the acharya’s prophecies are being fulfilled by the hand of every devotee. A huge amount of effort and money has gone into the making of this gigantic temple to fulfill the desire of Srila Prabhupada who wanted to build a home where the whole world can live. Let us all not miss this rare opportunity to contribute and be a part of this beautiful and historic undertaking.
