INDIA, June 2, 2023 (Mint): Apsuja Infratech, a Hyderabad-based leading construction company, has collaborated with Simpliforge Creations, an innovative 3D construction printing company, to create the world’s first 3D printed temple, a remarkable feat in architectural innovation. The 3D printed temple, located in Charvitha Meadows in Burugupally, Siddipet, Telangana, is a testament to the harmonious integration of technology and nature with sustainability. The ground-breaking three-part structural marvel, a Hindu temple, sprawling over an impressive 3,800 square feet and standing tall at about 30 feet, is a one-of-a-kind innovation being built in India. The structure’s three sanctums, or Garbhas, represent a Modak (a fig-shaped delicacy) dedicated to Lord Ganesha, a Shivalay, a square abode dedicated to Lord Shankar, and a Lotus-shaped home for Goddess Parvati. Simpliforge 3D printed the structure using their in-house developed system, as well as locally developed material and software. This is by far the largest 3D printed structure in the world as a place of worship.
