Standing high above the confluence of the rivers Ganges, Yamuna, and Saraswati, the Maharishi Smarak* is a spectacular sight.
Located on the west bank of the confluence opposite the city of Prayag (Allahabad), the building is visible from all over and is a fitting tribute to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's revival of the ancient Vedic knowledge, including Maharishi Vedic architecture.
The building uses only the best and most advanced Samadhi Mandir construction. It is fully carved inside and out with no iron support of any kind, completely built with interlocking stones and beams. Every aspect of the construction is being overseen by a Sthapati (Vedic architect) whose expertise is in this type of Vastu building.
The core of the main building is the Hall of Silence whose walls will be lined with skillfully executed marble panels displaying the most significant themes of the Vedic knowledge as revived by Maharishi.

Clearly the Maharishi Smarak will stand as a timeless memorial to the eternal wisdom of Vedic life re-enlivened for the world by His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
* The word Smarak is derived from Smriti and means Memorial.
