The Maharishi Samadhi Smarak in India, a memorial of Total Knowledge, will be a spectacular sight on the banks of the auspicious Triveni Sangam (the confluence of the three holy rivers: Ganges, Yamuna and Saraswati).
The Maharishi Samadhi Smarak is being built to celebrate the eternal Vedic wisdom of His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Transcendental Meditation Programme and the Global Country of World Peace, for thousands of generations to come.
Visible everywhere from the city of Prayag (Allahabad), the architecture is the best and most advanced Samadhi Mandir construction, fully carved inside and outside, without any iron, completely built with interlocking stones and beams.
The Mandaps of Knowledge
A giant Vedic Gate will greet pilgrims and visitors, situated at the beginning of a 200 metre connecting, raised pilgrimage pathway leading to the Smarak (memorial of knowledge). On the right and left of this road will be 12 Mandaps (halls of knowledge) displaying and illustrating Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's supreme knowledge in exhibitions and electronic displays, similar to what is planned for the 12-storey Maharishi Tower of Invincibility.
A most renowned and distinguished Sthapati, architect of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, has made a beautiful design of a grand square Mahamandap hall, to be placed exactly above and around the position of the original Samadhi structure.
On the outside the fully carved and beautifully ornamented hall will be made of yellow Jaisalmer stone. Inside, the floor, pillars, and ceilings will be of pure white Makrana marble.
In the centre, above the Samadhi structure, will be a high, white marble, ornamented dome, about 12' in diameter. The Samadhi Smarak will be landscaped all around, on a mountain of flowers with beautiful terraced gardens.
The foundation markings have been made and digging the foundations has begun. A team of civil contractors have reviewed the plans and are ready to begin work. Orders have been placed for the required marble and stone, so that carving can begin very soon. A crane and about 50 workers will arrive at the site shortly; other equipment is already in place. Photographs and images of the site and construction will be available soon.
