An artist's impression of how Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir in India will look when it is completed in 2019

Work is underway to build the world's tallest religious building in India that will come complete with a theme park.
Construction is taking place in Uttar Pradesh to build a 700ft high Hindu temple, which will be called Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir.
The temple will be built using earthquake-proof materials and will rise up to 70 storeys high in the shape of a rocket ship.
A capsule elevator will be able to take visitors up to a viewing deck and the journey will tell the story of the universe, laid out in Vedic literature, though light and sound.
At 700 feet tall, the temple will become the tallest religious building in the world, towering over the likes of Sagarda Familia in Barcelona at 558 feet, Ulm Minister in Germant at 530 feet and St Peter's Basilica in the Vatican at 437 feet.
It will also be almost double the height of St Paul's Cathedral in London, which stands at 365 feet.
However, it will still be dwarfed by the world's tallest buildings including the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, One World Trade Centre in New York and the Shard in London.
And as well as the temple, the complex when finished will include theme park rides for the International Society of Krishna Consciousness as well as houses and apartments.
The project to build the tower is being undertaken by Indian practice InGenious Studio and structural consultant Thornton Tomasetti.Narasimha Das, director of the project told the Spaces architecture website: 'Attractions planned in the theme park would be like park rides, animatronics, light, sound and special effects as well as the Vraja Mandal parikrama shows and laser shows.
