The future of architecture, technology, and spiritual marvel converges in an extraordinary construction as Apsuja Infratech in collaboration with Simpliforge Creations proudly announced the inauguration of the world’s first 3D Printed Hindu Temple at Charvitha Meadows. Nestled in the heart of Burugupally, Vayupuri, Siddipet, this iconic temple stands tall, a testament to pioneering innovation and cultural heritage. Mr. Hari Krishna Jeedipalli, Managing Director, Apsuja Infratech, Mr Amit Ghule, Chief Operating Officer & Mr Waseem Chaudhary, Chief Technology Officer – Simpliforge Creations have today inaugurated the temple.
Crafted meticulously over months of dedicated work, the temple embodies the union of tradition and cutting-edge technology. This architectural marvel, standing at 35.5 ft tall and spanning across 4,000 square feet, stands as an awe-inspiring testament to human ingenuity and devotion.
Scheduled for the public to visit from 24th November 2023, following the completion of the Prathistapana, the temple welcomes devotees and enthusiasts to experience its spiritual aura and architectural brilliance.
Thaneeru Harish Rao, Hon’ble Minister of Finance, Health – Medical & Family Welfare – Government of Telangana said “It is definitely a proud moment for Telangana, as a 3D printed place of worship like never before in the world is built in Siddipet and this is just stepping stone for the architectural innovations in the days to come. I wish more innovative thoughts like this are on the way and adds value to the ever-growing state of Telangana”.
Speaking at the occasion Mr. Hari Krishna Jeedipalli, Managing Director, Apsuja Infratech said that “Bringing divine visions to life through the synergy of innovation and tradition, the 3D-built Hindu temple at Charvitha Meadows in Siddipet stands as a testament to our dedication in merging technology with spirituality, forging a sacred space that transcends time and elevates the soul.”
Mr Amit Ghule, Chief Operating Officer said “This is a first-of-its-kind 3D Temple not just in India but in the world. This construction takes care of the structural requirements, principles of temple design, 3D printing requirements, while dealing with the challenges of in-site construction. This proof of concept also sets the stage for future applications of Simpliforge’s robust systems in inaccessible areas like frontiers, high altitude areas, desserts and snowy regions with applications in challenging terrain, disaster hit areas and defence applications.”
Mr Waseem Chaudhary, Chief Technology Officer, remarked, “The Garbhagudis have been meticulously designed to enhance the resonance of Vedic chants, mesmerizing devotees with their reverberations. Drawing inspiration from the Puri Jagannath temple style, the Gopuram designs showcase our commitment to architectural finesse and cultural heritage.”
Breaking barriers in construction and design, the temple was meticulously built using Simpliforge’s patented 3D Printable Construction material, Simplicrete. The sanctums and dome Spires, including the Modaka, Shivalay, and Lotus Garbhagudis, were crafted entirely through on-site 3D printing, a process that took across 70 days of continuous printing. The temple’s Mandapam slab was constructed using traditional methods, emphasizing the fusion of conventional techniques with futuristic innovation.
Moreover, this ground-breaking endeavour stands as a testament to Apsuja Infratech’s and Simpliforge’s dedication to innovation and drive for automation in construction. Noteworthy points include the temple being built 100% on location, signifying the accelerated pace and structural robustness achievable through 3D printing technology. With this radical achievement, Apsuja Infratech and Simpliforge Creations have not only carved a niche for themselves in the construction industry but have also positioned India as a global pioneer in 3D printed architecture.
