Started Year: 1990            Completed year: 1992            Client: Jayant Vitamins Ltd., Ratlam

Jayant Vitamins is a Pharmaceutical industry at Ratlam in M.P. It is a "Karma Kshetra", the field of activity to quote a term from Gita. Respected Shri Preranaben Thakre desired to create a "Dharma Kshetra" in this "Karma Kshetra". She entrusted this project to me. In this complex of "Dharma Kshetra" various activities are carried out for welfare of people. However, I would like to dwell upon the project of temple at this stage.

Seven beautiful temples to the pleasing eyesight of viewers and superb from architectural point of view have been constructed here. Five temples with summits and two more small decorative temples installing idols of Hanumanji and Ganpati are very much here at this place. In these five temples having summits, five idols of Lord Shiva, Ambaji, Radhakrishna, Ramdarbar and Lakshminarayan are installed.

The whole temple is erected on platform. The platform is also constructed on elephant of the size of 3' 6" in measurement. In front of the platform, idols of DEVGANA 6'-0 in size, superbly carved, have been installed. The goddesses are depicted to be welcoming the visitors and worshipers in different styles and gestures.

This may be the only Hindu temple complex on such a wide scale at a single spot, among temple architectural creations of Indian Culture.

All these seven temples were constructed in Dhrangadhra stone in a short span of eighteen months.

Salav, near Alibaug- a quiet coastal village, where the river Kundalika goes meandering by and where the land meets the silvery sea. On this idyllic Konkan terrain, a long cherished dream has been realised.

One facet of the dream- A modern industrial plant, enhancing the country's economic growth.

The other facet- The dream of Shri Aditya Vikram Birla, the making of Shree Vikram Vinayak Mandir.

Atop a gentle hillock, overlooking the shimmering sea bolow, rises this temple, bringing together the dieties from the different corners of our vast land. Durga, Radha- Krishna, Shiv- Parvati and Surya Narayan- all gathered around the central presence of Lord Ganesha.

Shree Vikram Vinayak Mandir - exquisitely crafted in white marble, adorned with a geodesic dome and fronted by a space frame, is an elegant fusion of Eastern architectural heritage and Western engineering principles.

Shri Vikram Vinayak Mandir- a beacon calling out those in search of the spiritual, a refuge for worship and meditation, a heaven of peace and serenity; a sanctuary for those in search of their inner self; a tryst with the religious and the uplifting.

Here, at Salva, a meeting ground of the Gods.
