Goisaikunda, serves as the backdrop for this sanctuary; a tribute to nature, spirituality and local culture, to embrace Hindu mythology and the essence of trekkers. This symbiosis is manifested in the circular shape of the sanctuary, which integrates with the landscape and honors the abode of the gods; Inspired by sacred geometry, it allows a panoramic view and adapts to the seasons.

The architectural program, which includes 4 rooms of different temperatures, fluid circulation cores, restaurant, changing rooms and open terraces, reflects its versatility and respect for the environment. Local wisdom guides the choice of sustainable materials and techniques. Native wood is used in structures and finishes, while local stones and natural fibers regulate extreme weather conditions. Glass and gold ceramic panels, within the transition areas, fuse the contemporary with the traditional. A green roof respects the surrounding biodiversity.

The sanctuary becomes a refuge for travelers, providing essential services, integrating with the dynamic local community. The design stands as a beacon of protection embracing the past, with a vision towards a future of growth and shared well-being, where architecture becomes a portal for healing and connection with place.
