One has to really see from their eyes to believe that a building as huge as 16,000 sq ft could stand tall without any pillar. This architecture in Jaipur is truly an engineering marvel. About four centuries back, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh built a temple in the middle of the city. It is a place where grand religious events take place throughout the year, attracting tourists from in and outside the country. However, without any proper shelter, these devouts would have to bear the brunt of nature: the sun, the wind and the rain. The engineers and architectures of the pink city came to the rescue. The Rs 3 crore project has a seating capacity of about 5,000 people and the lack of pillar allows them an unrestricted gaze to the preaching stage.
