Take a look at India’s first Om-shaped temple under construction in Rajasthan

The Om Akaar Temple in Jadan Village of Rajasthan’s Pali district, is designed in the auspicious shape of ‘Om’. 

This unique temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, spans an impressive 250 acres.

The foundation stone for this grand structure was laid back in 1995, and after nearly three decades of meticulous construction involving over 400 workers, the temple is nearing completion, with an expected inauguration in 2024.

This world-first Om-shaped temple will house 1,008 idols of Lord Mahadev and 12 Jyotirlingas, symbolizing the divine presence of Shiva. Standing at 135 feet tall and supported by 2,000 pillars, the temple also features 108 residential rooms, signifying the sacred number in Hinduism. A Shivling made of rhinestone from Dholpur’s Bansi hill graces the upper part of the temple, while a massive water tank with a 2 lakh tonne capacity lies beneath the complex.

The visionary behind this spiritual haven is Vishwa Guru Maha Mandleshwar Paramahansa Swami Maheswara Nanda Puriji Maharaj.
