Planning a sacred destination – Rimpesh Sharma

Envisioning a prosperous career in designing and construction, Rimpesh quotes from his inspirational collections- “A city is not an accident but the result of coherent visions and aims”, Leon Krier. Driven by the appreciated thought behind these words, Rimpesh Sharma, Director of InGenious Studio Pvt. Ltd just bagged one of his greatest projects yet and was delighted to share the details with Gallopper.

Rimpesh, a member of Project Management Institute has 15 years of professional experience in Architecture, Interior and the Building Construction industry. He has previously undertaken responsibility for the indepth analysis of projects, right from covering the demographic, economic, financial, infrastructure, physical, environmental and institutional aspects, to formulating a perspective and a strategy for urban development.

1Principle architects to the world’s tallest religious building at Vrindavan, Mathura, Rimpesh and his team rewardingly recreate their religious master piece.
Being one of the most extravagant religious temples by Isckon, Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir Theme Park is planned to be vibrant with festivals and religious activities throughout the year. A look-alike of the verdant forests of Vrindavan will be recreated around this magnificent temple. The project is set in 62 acres of land and will include 12 acres for parking and a helipad.

2The temple has a footprint of about 5 acres and rises to a height of about 700 feet and a built-up area of 5,40,000 sq. ft. It will be spread over a sprawling 26 acres, it will consist of the twelve forests (dvadashakanana) surrounded by about 30 acres of wooded area that constitute recreated forests of Braj, with varieties of lush vegetation, green pastures, elegant vistas of fruit bearing trees, flower laden creepers serenaded by bird songs, clear water lakes with lotus and lilies and waterfalls that tumble from small artificial hillocks – all recreated from descriptions in the Srimad Bhagavatam and other such books of Lord Sri Krishna, with the intent to transport the visitors to Krishna’s times in Vrindavan.

5The temple, with a traditional Nagra architecture at the entrance, will have elements of a glass façade that would stretch to the 70th floor. This project will have a unique indoor Krishna-Radha recreational park along with Krishna heritage museum. Telescopes placed on the top floor will allow people to view entire Vrindavan. A capsule elevator is planned to rise up through the temple core and a viewing tower which will provide a glimpse to the grand temple that one can enjoy panoramic views of Mathura, Agra and river Yamuna from there. A night safari is also planned as part of the premise offering a picturesque view of the destination.6

Housing and accommodation will be available for the visitors to continue to thrive in serenity. The gentle gurgling of the Yamuna creek, walking by the skywalk, surrounded by the lush green forests, are scenes which will be recreated through the project.

“Design is one of the most dynamic art forms that only gets better with time,” expresses Rimpesh, who along with his team-mates at InGenious Studio are focused to explore the industry with renewed vigor and determination.
