Completed dome beams.

Completed dome beams.

Another eventful week as the wall framing continued and the arched glu-lam beams were erected. These beams create the framework for the dome and the iconic shape of the Mandir. All the beams went up without a hitch – great job by the carpenter crew! The foundation walls were water-proofed and the wall sheathing was installed along with some arched window openings.
Jai Guru – Jai Swamiji!!


  1. Is Swami Kriyananda’s body already there or is he going to be entered after the construction?

    1. Swami’s body is in a vault outside his apartment, and will remain there until the Mandir is complete. He will be moved sometime this winter.
