We were here with a guide for a short visit who explained the significance of this museum. This floor of this museum/temple shows the map/terrain of India - it is made of marble. Its like a marble relief map. It’s a national monument. The building is not well maintained - but still worth a short visit

This was the last place my guide took me to see after two full days in Varanasi. It is completely important for both understanding India's unique ecologies and histories, but also for sensing the rising pride of the freedom movement that led to independence. It is a temple to "Mother India" and the floor is covered with an intricate scale model of India's geography, carved from marble brought from the quarry that supplied all the marble for the Taj Mahal. I found it incredibly interesting, and surprisingly moving to spend time in this place.

This is sort of a museum with one display. The display is the Indian sub continent. The centre piece is on the floor of the temple. It is map of the Indian Sub Continent. It shows the mountain ranges. The building is housed in a nice, big compound. However, the building itself is not well maintained. Maybe, because very few people visit. I am not sure. The building has two floors. The top floor acts as a gallery. But, it is closed for the visitors.

Whilst this isn’t a must see it is a fascinating sight to see. The temple is like any other temple where you have to take your shoes off and pay proper respect. I understand the temple of was idea of Gandhi to pay proper respect to the then India with a carving of the whole continent to a significant degree of accuracy from the height of the Himalayas to the depth of the ocean. looking down on it from the viewing platform it is fascinating to understand the vastness of the country and see how this has changed over the years.
