The unique pinchi shaped temple is devoted to Acharya Shanthisagar. The temple is located at the base of mandaragiri. The temple has received the unique world record certificate for the shape of the building. It was constructed in 18 months and was opened in 2014. The structure measures 81ft height and covers 2400 sq.ft area.

The idol of Sri Shanthisagar carved in white marble is kept inside.

There are various paintings and wall art inside the premise.

These could be depicting the life of the swamiji. There was nothing written and no one nearby to explain.

We took a quick walk inside.

The exterior is the most attractive part and nothing much to see here except for this.
