Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Kingsbury - 2014 Aug 3rd - Shikhars
Time is getting close. Look at these!!
The devotees have been working tirelessly over the past weeks to complete the shikhars. The shikhars were built up as modules weighing anything from 400kgs to 30kgs. A crane was brought in to lift these in place but positioning and fitting had to be done manually.
Have a look and see...

London's New Temple Construction Progress - Main Dome
The construction of the main dome is a complex process.
The outside stone petals are supported by an internal metal Skelton.
to ensure everything fits correctly on the roof, the dome was built on the ground first, where manipulating and cutting is easier.
Once the ground work was complete, the metalwork was moved to the roof. The petals will be moved up by a crane in July.
