  • The shoes had to take off inside the vault to the temple grounds. There were paintings inside the temple at the famous prophets within the hinduvärlden. The garden was nice to stay in ovh there sat a large clock on a position. At the entrance to the temple grounds, there were vendors who sold the victim flowers and wreaths to lay inside the temple plus much else that belonged to the religion.

  • The temple is located in Mahatma Gandhi University Campus and was built in the early 1900. The marble statue internally represents the indivisibility from India.

  • If you want to see whole india in a physical view or 3D view then move on. A great place to learn the height and depth of our motherland with respect to sea and mountains. It is a good experience to see The Great Himalaya in 3d. We should be proud to have such a temple of our country.
  • Not in good condition as i expect. Temple is in construction snd not crowded. I was thinking that this is type of muesuim where our freedom fighters releted things are displayed but nothing is thre and also temple is not in gud condition . And in 26 jan is not decoreted . But very peacefull place you cn feel india before 1945 and very intresting place becoz of map of india in 3d
  • 3D art of mother india , this was made by faculty of visual arts, Kashi Vidyapeeth, Varanasi. Must go during Varanasi visit very much near to Varanasi Jn Railway station. Nice place to visit
  • The only Temple of Mother India, probably. Spacious ground in front of Mandir. Lot of Students and people visit here. Not maintained well. Youth, NGOs interested to promote cleanliness should work with youngsters & develop the place. As it's an unique temple and everyone should visit at least once to have a look. Very close to Kashi Vidhyapeet and I. P. Mall, Sigra.
  • It's a serene place . Good display of Indian subcontinent terrain. Har Har Mahadev.
