The restored Lord Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple has been inaugurated at Yadadri. In the newly inaugurated temple, ‘kalashams’ (50-year warranty) has been designed using Nano Tech Gold Deposition (NTGD).

About

About Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swami temple in Yadadri:

  • The Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy Temple, also known as Yadadri or Yadagirigutta temple, is a Hindu temple located on a hill in the remote town of Yadagirigutta in the Yadadri Bhuvanagiri district.
  • The temple’s Gopuram is covered with 125 kg of gold.
  • There are Purana and traditional accounts of this Shrine, which are widely popular among the devotees.
  • There is mention about the origin of this temple in the Skanda Purana, one of the famous 18 puranas.

Skanda Purana

  • Skanda Purana is the largest of the eighteen major puranas containing over 81,000 Sanskrit metrical verses.
  • The earliest version of the Skanda Purana probably existed before the 5th century CE 
  • The temple, which is 65 kilometres from Hyderabad, was rebuilt using black granite.
    • The black granite used in construction, Krushna Sila, was acquired from Gurujapally in the Guntur district.

Architecture style

  • It is a blend of Dravidian, Pallava, and Kakatiyan temple architecture styles. 
  • Around the Mukha Mandapa, which leads to the sanctum sanctorum, which is 18 feet below ground, statues of the 12 Alwars depicting the Kakatiyan style of construction have been erected.
  • With all of these sculptures, chandeliers, golden Dhwaja Sthamba, and architectural style, the corridor in front of the sanctum sanctorum evokes the royal splendour found within a king’s court.
  • Unlike other temples, which have a 7-foot Garbhalaya entrance, this temple has an 11-foot Garbhalaya door with a golden Nava Narasimha Swami artwork.

About Nano Tech Gold Deposition (NTGD):

  • NTGD (Nano Tech Gold Deposition) is a patented Nano technology that allows for lesser consumption of gold in Gold plating.
  • NTGD technology effectively increases the affordability of the projects by decreasing the consumption to about 5 grams per sqft.
  • As opposed to conventional gold coating, the thickness of the gold layer using this method is reduced to microns.
    • This is achieved through electroplating of Gold onto a suitable metal substrate, preferably copper, which is well known for its conductivity.
  • The initial copper electroplating ensures a smooth even finish which is evident on our product quality.
    • The same can be replicated with silver electroplating as well.
  • The longevity of the product is also assured as the gold is plated on rather than applied as a coating.
    • The overall finished product is significantly lighter and easier to handle than products coated through conventional methods.
    • The cherry on the cake is the fact that the gold deposited through this method is 100% recoverable at any given point of time. 
  • Nano Tech Gold Deposition (NTGD) is a method that is exclusively used in NASA and ISRO aerospace and defence applications for the job.
