Kurukshetra News: Yogiraj, who created the idol of Ramlala in Ayodhya, will now sculpt the giant form of Shri Krishna in Kurukshetra, Haryana. It depicts the towering form of Shri Krishna in his dialogue with Arjun during the Mahabharata. It also features chariots as well as Arjun and four horses. Just like the idol of Shri Ram, this idol is also made of Shaligram stone which is extracted from the Gandak river in Nepal. The idol of Shri Krishna will be installed in the sanctum sanctorum of the under-construction 18-story Gyan Mandir on the eastern bank of the Brahmasarovar, which gives a special identity to Dharmanagari and is considered the tallest in Asia.
Yogiraj will inspect the temple
A huge statue of Shri Krishna conveying a message to Arjun will be installed in the sanctum sanctorum of the temple for which discussions have been held with sculptor Arun Yogiraj. The trust has drawn up a plan for this. Renowned sculptor Arun Yogiraj will also visit the temple soon.
After Arun Yogiraj accepted the proposal to make this statue, the Trust also contacted Nepal so that this special Shaligram stone from the Gandak River could be brought there. Currently, construction of the temple is underway and more than 50 percent of the work has been completed. Only after Arun Yograj reaches here will it be decided how much time will be required to complete the idol.
18-story temple of knowledge
According to Swami Chiranjeevpuri, founder of the Brahmapuri Annakshetra Trust Gyan Mandir, the 18-story Gyan Mandir will be special in many ways. It also shows 18 chapters of Geeta, 18 Akshauhini Sena, 18 War Days of Mahabharata and the form of the holy river Saraswati in this temple.
