Worlds first 3D-printed temple being built in Siddipet, Telangana

HYDERABAD: Apsuja Infratech, a Hyderabad-based large-scale construction company, in collaboration with Simpliforge Creations, an innovative 3D-printed Construction business, will create the world's first 3D-printed place of worship, a stunning feat in architectural innovation.

The 3D-printed temple embodies Telangana's pride as it embarks on a national architectural revolution.

The 3D-printed temple, located in Charvitha Meadows in Burugupally, Siddipet, Telangana, serves as a testament to the harmonious integration of technology and nature with sustainability.

The groundbreaking three-part structure marvel, a Hindu temple sprawling over an impressive 3,800 sq.ft and standing tall at about 30 feet, is a unique architectural wonder, a one-of-its-kind innovation being built in Telangana. The three sanctums or Garbhas within the structure represent a 'Modak' (a fig shaped delicacy) dedicated to Lord Ganesha, a Shivalay, a square abode devoted to Lord Shankar and a lotus shaped home for Goddess Parvati.

Simpliforge 3D-printed the structure using their in-house created technique, materials and software. This is by far the largest 3D-printed edifice in the world as a place of worship.

This landmark achievement not only showcases the immense potential of 3D-printed construction but also demonstrates the architectural freedom and capabilities of the robotic arm system developed by the Simpliforge team. “Completely printed on-site, the temple's striking dome-shaped structures including the modak and the lotus, presented formidable challenges that required the team to employ bespoke design techniques, meticulous analysis and innovative construction methods, all the while following the principles of temple architecture resulting in this awe-inspiring architectural marvel," said Hari Krishna Jeedipalli, MD, Apsuja Infratech.

“With the Shivalay and the modak construction completed, phase II, comprising the lotus and the tall spires (gopurams) are already underway,” added Hari.

Simpliforge Creations, a leading turnkey solutions provider in 3D-printed construction, has hailed this project as a testament to the possibilities within the industry. “This structure demonstrates Simpliforge’s ability to print 51º and 32º in outward and inward cantilever, respectively, especially while printing in-situ catering to the architectural/aesthetic requirements. This construction takes care of the structural requirements, principles of temple design, 3D-printing requirements while dealing with the challenges of in-situ construction. This proof of concept also sets the stage for future applications of Simpliforge's robust systems in inaccessible areas like frontiers, high altitude areas, deserts and snowy regions with applications in challenging terrain, disaster hit areas and defence applications.”

Dhruv Gandhi, CEO, Simpliforge Creations. said: “The enclosed dome-shaped structures, eliminating the need for flat slab roofs, paves the way for extra-terrestrial applications which is Simpliforge’s grander vision.”

The world's first 3D-printed place of worship stands as an awe-inspiring testament to the harmonious union of human creativity, technological prowess and architectural finesse. Having also delivered India’s first 3D-printed bridge prototype at Charvitha Meadows previously, the 3D-printed temple now adds a Global First to the crown of feats at this project.
