Simploring 2022 (15) Svarga

Our Kitty sent me the landmark of Svarga with the remark “Enjoy the ride!”

I admit I never heard about Svarga. I looked it up on wikipedia …
Svarga is one of the seven higher lokas (esoteric plane) in Hindu cosmology. The seven lokas consist of Bhuloka, Bhuvar loka, Svarga loka (Indraloka), Maharloka, Janaloka, Taparloka, Satyaloka. While these seven lokas and seven patala lokas form 14 lokas of our Universe, beyond these 14 exist Goloka, Manidweepa and such higher lokas of multiple Universes.
Svarga Loka is a set of heavenly worlds located on and above Mt. Meru where the righteous live in paradise before their next incarnation. During each pralaya (the great dissolution), the first three realms, Bhu loka (Earth), Bhuvar loka and Swarga loka are destroyed. Below the seven upper realms lie seven lower realms, of Patala, the underworld and netherworld. Lord Indra is King of Svarga.
Svarga is seen as a transitory place for righteous souls who have performed good deeds in their lives but are not yet ready to attain moksha, or elevation to Vaikunta, the abode of Lord Vishnu, considered to be the Supreme Abode states.
The capital of Svarga is Amaravati and its entrance is guarded. Svarga is presided over by Indra, the leader of the devas.

ok ok … that didn’t really help me.

I teleported to Svarga. Svarga is built on a full region, rated general. The landing is on a small island with a gazebo. Here you sit down on a huge wasp .. and the wasp begins to fly giving you a tour…

svarga wasp whispers: Welcome to a guided tour of Svarga

In European mythology Svarga or “Heaven” is the residence of the god Svarog.
the island was formed by the collapsed caldera of a very old volcano
Svarga itself is very old SL-wise
it was built in 2006 and nothing has been added since
at that time sculpted and flexible prims were not available in SL
so all content is original, built with basic SL primitives
Some artificial life experiment were conducted here
with plants that grow and multiply
at daytime you can still spot bees seeking flowers
and carnivorous plants eating bees
under this place, you can get a word from an ancient oracle.
by giving L$25 for charity

There was an exciting chat to sound experiment here
we hope to get it back soon
Come back with friends to that house later
and have fun with the elfin musical instruments
Up the central tower you will find books about SL
and from the bridges you get nice overall views of the island
need to relax a bit? stay here and enjoy the quiet floral environment
now taking you back to where we started

svarga wasp whispers: have a nice day in Svarga

Svarga is owned by a group, the group was founded by Laukosargas Svarog. On Laukosargas Svarog’s profile I found a bit of information:
Hello, these days I’m hardly ever in SL at all, I might pop in once every few months just to see how things are. I no longer sell anything and all my shops are closed. Svarga has a new owner now.

I couldn’t find out who is the owner now. Anyway, Svarga seems to be a classic sim, built back in 2006 (!), just I didn’t come across it yet. It looks nice and the ride with the wasp was fun. And the name “Svarga” does ring a bell now for me. If you visit – enjoy the ride!
