Excellence with a single span of 119 feet !
It is a Dream Realized!
Shri Manas Goswami
The late Shri Pradhyumna Kumar Goswami, the father and the predecessor of
present sole Sebayat and sole Trustee, Shri Anjan Kumar Goswami, dreamt
that there should be a separate place with adequate accommodation &
facilities for the devotees to be benefited by the spiritual and religious
discourses and cultural activities aiming to Krishna-Bhakti and Leela Prasar.
He could not fulfill it in his life time.
His able son and a dedicated
successor, The Present Sole Sebait and the Sole Trustee, Thikana Mandir
Shri Govind Devji Maharaj, Jaipur - Shri Anjan Kumar Goswami, visualised
and conceived a Satsang Hall in the campus on West of the temple garbh-graha with all the uptodate amenities and facilities for the
that it should be a place under a single
span roof so that nothing should obstruct the vision and hinder the
sight of any of the spectators / devotees witnessing the programs going on. He envisaged that at least 5,000 persons at a
time may conveniently be accommodated in it. He discussed it with
all concerned; examined it at length with his son and successor, shri
Manas Goswami whose devotion and active participation in the Temple
activities is commendable.
People related with
construction activities told him that it was a challenge fraught with
grave risks at every step. He Took the Challenge and decided to go
ahead. For any risk whatsoever, both of them decided to take all
precautions before hand.
