India - Christie has announced that its Griffyn Series RGB pure laser projectors are illuminating the façade of the Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi Temple for a spectacular son et lumière that pays homage to the timeless legends of Lord Krishna.
Situated in Mathura, a sacred city in India’s northern state of Uttar Pradesh, the Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi Temple is traditionally regarded as the birthplace of Lord Krishna, one of the most widely revered divinities in Hinduism. With its origins dating back to the 6th century BC, this temple stands as a site of profound importance and ranks among India’s most frequented religious destinations.
The nightly 40-minute light and sound show which portrays Lord Krishna’s life as a symbol of tenderness, patience, compassion, and love, was inaugurated by Agra’s chief minister, Yogi Adityanath.
This mesmerising presentation was accomplished by eight Christie Griffyn 4K32-RGB pure laser projectors, meticulously installed and commissioned by Modern Stage Service, a renowned systems integrator recognised for numerous projection mapping projects across India. Its portfolio includes prominent landmarks such as the Old Fort in New Delhi and the Sanchi Stupa in Madhya Pradesh.
“Bringing the legend of Lord Krishna to life through the captivating fusion of light and sound has been an incredible journey,” said Kartik Wadhwa, director of Modern Stage Service. “We are delighted to partner with Christie to strategically deploy the Griffyn Series projectors in weatherproof enclosures at the Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi Temple for this highly anticipated son et lumière, which reaffirms our commitment to delivering awe-inspiring visual experiences at one of India’s most cherished landmarks.”
Rishubh Nayar, sales director for India, Enterprise, Christie, added: “This new light and sound show at the Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi Temple is a testament to the enduring power of storytelling through projection technology, and we are honoured to be a part of this iconic endeavour. The Griffyn Series projectors not only bring historical narratives to life, but also showcase the immense potential of visual artistry at this sacred site, enriching the spiritual and cultural experience for countless pilgrims and visitors.”
The Griffyn Series has a strong track record of illuminating large-scale monuments and venues across India, such as the Statue of Equality in Telangana and BAPS Sri Swaminarayan Mandir in Gondal.
