The Main Entrance

The main entrance is a modified version of the entrance at Ajanta Caves. Four massive sculptured columns, the capitals of which were selected from the Ashoka Stambha, receive the Ajanta Cave arch. The key-stone at the apex is the Shiva Linga, depicting that one’s mainstay in life should be God. The steps on the side of the arch are the gradual unfolding of the Divinity within till it reaches its apex – Shiva. By the side of the arch are two elephants selected from the Saranath Stupa. The scroll signifies the Ramakrishna Upanishad being unfolded.
