The present building was designed in the Early English Gothic Style by Boston architect and Advent parishioner John Hubbard Sturgis in 1875 and was substantially complete by 1888. [http://archive.theadventboston.org/geninfo/building.htm]
The building’s unique appearance was new to a campus that had previously employed a more classical architecture style. [http://studentlife.mit.edu/cac/event-services-spaces/event-spaces/mit-chapel].
In order to fully admire the Mandir’s beauty and grandeur, let’s take a glimpse at how the Mandir was made. The Mandir, built in the Nagaradi style, stands 42 feet tall, 133 feet long and 87 feet wide and is made entirely of Italian Carrara marble (68,000 cubic feet); only the third Mandir of its kind.
