The incomplete Shri Yantra Mandir is actually the Shri Yantra Mahameru Shakti Peeth. It is being built under the Bhartiya Prachya Yog Shodh Sansthan. The temple is the brainchild of Acharya Mandaleshwar of the Attal Akhada Sri Swami Shukdevanadji and is being constructed according to the ancient tenets of the Hindu temple building contained in the ancient Agama Shastras. The reason why the Shri Yantra Temple is still not completed even after more than 30 years is that construction is undertaken only during the Guru Pushya Nakshatra, which is considered auspicious.
