In 2020, the BAPS Hindu Mandir witnessed it’s monumental ceremony marking a single pour of 3,000 cubic meters of concrete mix, which is made up of 55% fly ash, making the Mandir foundation green compared to most concrete mixtures used in the region. These unique foundations do not contain any steel reinforcement following the traditional ancient stone architecture used for religious stone buildings in India. This occasion marked the single largest pour of its kind in the UAE.
Moreover, the Mandir will be the first ever stone structure of its kind which will have more than 300 temperature, load, and strain sensors embedded at 10 different levels in the foundation to provide online active data of stress, pressure, and temperature measurements for the next 50 years.
