    PATNA: Replicating the world largest Hindu temple in Combodia's Angkor Wat, the Bihar Mahavir Mandir Trust ( BMMT) on Sunday said they will build a bigger temple in Bihar's Vaishali district.

    To be built at a cost of Rs 100 crore, the five-storied and 222-feet tall temple will come up at a sprawling campus spread over 15 acres at a place near Ismailpur village on Hajipur-Bidupur road, which will be christened as Angkor Nagar, BMMT's secretary and ex-IPS officer Acharya Kishore Kunal said.

    Land worth around Rs 30 crore has already been acquired for the purpose from locals, he said.

    The proposed temple will be named 'Virat Angkor Wat Ram Mandir' and it will house the statues of Radha-Krishna, Shiva-Parvati, Ganesh, Surya, Vishnu and ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu.

    It will take upto five years to construct the temple and another five years to give the final finishing touches to it, Kunal said.

    On selection of the specific site for construction of the world's largest Hindu temple, he said the place has mythological significance as it was said that the deities Ram, Lakshman and Vishvamitra had set their foot on the village and were welcomed by the King Sumati of the Vaishali kingdom.

    The 'bhumi pujan' for the proposed temple will be held tomorrow, Kunal said adding the temple was being constructed to mark the centenary celebrations of the BMMTs.

    The Angkor Wat temple was built in Cambodia in the 12th century during the rule of then Cambodian king Suryavarman (1141-1152 AD).

    Better spend that 100 crore on the upkeep of the existing temples and on the organizations/volunteers helping out the poor tribals/adivasis.

    How does it help, apart from a mention in the Guinness Book of Records?

    You know what's better..? Spending that money on the upkeep of already existing landmarks and better still spending that on poor.oppressed sections of Hindu society who make a easy target for the foreign funded missioanries.

    Build a hospital, a school or even a playground for them to utilize...why would they then think of abandoning their faith for money ?

    Actually, I would say both helping the poor and building religious monuments is required. This job was done in the past by kings and later rich people like the Birla Mandirs built by the Birlas. Even Mayawati behen ji realises the importance of monuments, she may lose her CM ship but these monuments to the Dalit leaders will remain.

    Does sound that the main intention of this trust is to go one up over Angkor to take the title of the world's largest Hindu temple. Nothing much spirutual about it. Wonder if the gods appreciate it! :namaste:

    Historically, Royalty would aim to build bigger and greater temples to massage their egos. Whatever may the intentions of the people building "Angkor Nagar", but by their naming standards alone, it doesnt feel much!

    I agree, but that is a poor logic, very substandard.

    Use money on infrastructure, education, eradicating poverty and I am very happy to be taxed. Else, it's your money, be a fool. I don't care.

    HEY WERE DID YOU go when MAYAWATI built the DALIT MONUMENT.........

    If it is wrong then why did SHAJAHAN wasted so much money to built the TAJ MAHAL and why do people visit it in large numbers and capture photos. Do you mean to say that only Shjahan loved her wife like that.

    Ratan Tata is a Zoroastrian. So if he builds any temple, it would probably be dedicated to Zoroaster or Ahura Mazda! :)
    Really doubt if he will build one though!

    Its not he tax payers money as it is supposed to be... we can waste it as we wish if thats a waste... For us pride and dignity is more important...


    And we know how much thousands spent on eradication of poverty actually reaches there... so for once lets do something which we can be proudly unidue about shall we???

    In India, religion has become symbol business,money,power and politics .It has nothing to do with welfare and teachings of good will, culture,good human being.etc etc
