Lighting Systems Design for Temples using New Technologies

History fascinates all of us. It speaks to us in various forms, through ruins, scrolls, stories and memories. In India, we are blessed to have temples and other monuments which weave the seamless tapestry of our existence since times immemorial. Lighting which forms the crucial part of the temple going experience is often neglected and thoughtlessly laid
out. Any damage to
the structure results in permanent loss of our cultural heritage. To an avid traveler and reader like me, it hurts to see such apathy. The project was conceived and executed keeping this ‘pain’ in
mind. Within the scope of the project, I have tried to address all issues related to lighting within the context of heritage
temples. The issues that fall within this gamut include light sources, fixtures, wire management, switches and power
supplies to some extent. Enough attention has been paid to keep the proposed systems culturally sensitive and
unobtrusive within the sacred space that is the Indian Temple.
