Prem Mandir, Rajkot-The Temple of Love
Prem Mandir is one of the most beautiful places in Rajkot. Its direct translation is the temple of love and it is dedicated to the sacred heart of Jesus Christ. The architectural style of the cathedral is similar to Hindu temple which is why it is called a “mandir”. This beautiful place is located near to the bishop’s house and is open for people to visit.
The cathedral has domes and a pinnacle with arches and carvings on granite which are similar to the mosques. It has a mosaic of Jesus Christ where he is seated above a lotus and this sight is similar to that of the depiction of Indian gods. All the five domes have carvings that symbolize all religions and this amalgamation of various religions under one roof makes it special. The ambiance of the cathedral is very pious and peaceful. You may find yourself at peace and close to God when you are here.
