We are living in the earth and there exists heaven (Swarga) according to the Hinduism.

How much is the distance from the earth to heaven according to the Hindu scriptures?

  • Heaven doest exist anywhere in this material world!one can only go heaven after his death because at that time person enters spiritual world.But we are living in material world not spiritual world. – Karmanya Nanda Jun 10 at 15:23
  • Indraloka is swarga and is distanced 1 lakh yojana =(8 lakha km) (Vishnu purana 2.7.5). – Wikash_ Jun 10 at 19:23
