Anotherunique project that makes a special mention in Minnie’s profile of work is a 400-year-old temple in Vrindavan, Mathura. This particular project involved Minnie to recondition the temple whilst retaining the old heritage interior. Besides, studying the subject of Lord Krishna closely, she also traveled across the country in search of the best craftsmen to work on the temple.
Together they created a beautiful backdrop for the idols in the form of peacock feathers with semiprecious stones like lapis, malachite and amethyst inlaid in white Makrana marble. 'Tree of life' inspired jalis in marble or the windows of the prayer hall, a tree to shade the sandstone idols of Krishna and his consort Radha, in pure Brass. She involved artisans from Rajasthan and Agra carves the stone facade of the temple extension.
