Asia’s tallest temple based on Gita teaching coming to Kurukshetra

New Delhi, August 6 (SocialNews.XYZ) Gyan Mandir, Asia’s first and tallest temple based on the teaching of the Bhagavad Gita, is being built on the banks of Brahma Sarovar in Haryana’s Kurukshetra.

Gyan Mandir will be a monument to Indian knowledge, ethics and wisdom. The temple is believed to be the first of its kind based on the teachings of the holy Gita.


It will be an eighteen story temple with a height of 260 feet. On the eve of the 75th anniversary of India’s independence, Gyan Mandir will also celebrate “Azadi ka Amir Mahotasav” on August 13 at his premises.

The temple is built by Sri Brahampuri Annakshetra Ashram Trust, which has been allocated three acres of land by the Kurukshetra Development Board.

The idea for a temple on the teachings of the Gita was conceived by Swami Chiranjeepuriji Maharaj Kurukshetra to showcase India’s scriptural and spiritual heritage.

The swami moved to Kuruskshetra in 1987 on the occasion of a solar eclipse and established the Sri Brahampuri Annakshetra Ashram. For 40 years, he has lived only on cow’s milk.
