A welcome break from the rush and madding crowds of Bengaluru city, Maitreya Buddha Pyramid welcomes with its slate-gray, stately mass of steel and concrete. This towering monument is believed to the largest meditation pyramid in the world and sprawls across 40-acres of well landscaped area.
Pyramid Valley was gifted to Bengaluru by the Pyramid Spiritual Societies Movement (PSSM) of the new age. The pyramid stands 102-ft tall and boasts of a base area of 160x160 ft. Capable of accommodating 5,000 people, this tranquil place of worship was constructed by Pyramid Spiritual Trust and reminds visitors of the principles influencing the construction of the Pyramid of Giza.
Maitreya Pyramid is accurately oriented in the North- South direction and has its angle of inclination at 52° 51’. The famous King’s Chamber is located at the centre and lies at 1/3rd of the height of the Pyramid. The northern face of the pyramid is known for its many murals depicting air (element of nature) while the southern, western and eastern faces are attributed to fire, earth and water respectively. The vast area within the pyramid represents the fifth element, space.
Here, a spiral staircase directs you into an inner chamber, where at least 40 people can perform mediation meditate at a single point of time. This chamber receives the maximum levels of energy inside the pyramid. Built in accordance to mathematical precision, the focal position of the pyramid boasts of 640 fist-sized crystals –which have been sourced from the Himalayas. These crystals activate high energy levels and help visitors achieve more profound spiritual experiences. This striking venue illustrates the many facets of Lord Buddha’s life with the cement wall mural of reclining Buddha (which has a stunning antique bronze finish ) stealing the show. The remaining walls are adorned with cave paintings from Ajanta and the wheels of the famous Konark temple. A must visit indeed!
