The Sat-Chit-Anand Water show at the Swaminarayan Akshardham complex in Gandhinagar, India is one of the world’s largest and most impressive light and water shows. The show tells the story of Nachiketa, a boy who courageously faces the god of death, Yamaraj. The epic tale of Nachiketa demands lighting that can convey the adventure and excitement of this myth while captivating the audience. It was therefore to the lighting experts at Griven that the show’s producers, BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS) turned. The 130-ft wide and 60-ft tall water-screen that the show would be projected upon required powerful lighting fixtures and bulbs and saturated, exciting colors that would capture the attention of the audience. Griven provided the show with 68 Danube LED color changers and 54 Dive underwater video projectors, providing the light and water show with 44,000 lumens of video projection. All three versions of the Danube, which comes with 10°, 30°, or 45° beam angles, were used giving the show’s light its vibrant character.
