Vishalakshi Mantap

The Vishalakshi Mantap is the focal point of the ashram, where all the spiritual enthusiasts come together to attend various courses. This beautifully crafted architectural marvel has been conceived and designed by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. This magnificent structure of the thousand-petals fame, with an entirely white marble floor and a lotus-shaped edifice is a wonderful blend of Vedic architecture and modern technology .

The Mantap known for its intricate craftsmanship, stunning illumination and elegant décor was built with the dedicated efforts of 7,000 workers and volunteers. The glass dome that tops the building is adorned with a magnificent ‘kalash’ – 15 feet 3 inches high - the tallest in Asia. Sri Sri has best described the feeling one gets when inside the Mantap as 'coming in to the lap of the Mother Goddess.' No one has yet been able to resist falling in love with the Mantap.
