Janaki Mandir

Janaki Mandir is a Hindu temple in Janakpur in the Mithila region of Nepal, dedicated to the Hindu goddess Sita. Constructed in an area of 4,860 sq. feet, the temple rises 50 meters high accommodating 60 rooms decorated with colored glass, engravings and paintings, with beautiful lattice windows, domes and turrets dating back to 11th and 12th Century AD.

Good lighting design could be one way to protect cultural values, authenticity and integrity of the heritage. The lighting scheme was proposed priority being given to concealed method of illumination creating minimum glare. The intention was for the lighting to provide aesthetic enhancement and functionality but without being seen and had to seamlessly integrate into the architecture highlighting details and focal points. To achieve the desired effect, various LED light and mounting fixtures were considered. The lighting brings out all the intricacies within view, enriches the intrinsic beauty of the temple and enhances the overall spiritual experience.
