  • 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.

  • Great concept! No deity, no statue, only a technically perfect physical map of India. But sadly this temple too wants maintenance.
  • Bharat Mata Temple is a unique, has an attractive and huge map of the Mother India on the ground denoting the statue of mother of India. Huge indian map engraved in white marble in center of the temple which is the main attraction of this place. Bharat mata mandir is the only one temple in India. The only Temple of Mother India, probably. Spacious ground in front of Mandir. Lot of Students and people visit here. Not maintained well. 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..

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
