Foundation of Akshardham Delhi

Pramukh Swami Maharaj (Swamishri) advised the Akshardham team to employ experts in foundation technology so that the foundation of akshardham would stand strong for thousands of years. B.V cjaidjaru. A renowned structural engineer and consultant, reflects with conviction, “There has been an experience of divine inspirations at every stage of the Akshardham project,’ Shri Chaudhary was anxious about making the foundation of AKshardham because of the gravelly soil,
the weight of the grand mandir and of Delhi being an earthwuake-prone zone. He adds, “it was an extraordinary challenge to desing a foundation that would last for thousands of years as desired by Pramukh Swami Maharaj. To my mind there was no satisfactory answer in all the modern possibilities.” At that time, a devotee named Maheshbhai Desai, also a foundation technologist, offered to help. After discussing with B.V Chaudhary, recollects the challenge, “without God’s inspiration and pramukh Swami Maharaj’s blessings, this task was impossible. Whenever I was perplexed and there seemed no way out, a solution was found after remembering pramukh Swami Maharaj and praying to God. I have gone through many such experiences. It is a miracle to have found such a wonderful solution for the foundation of Akshardham.

All those involved in the project agree unanimously that the mandir’s foundation problem would have never been solved, if not for divine inspiration.
