Pay a visit to the stunning main temple, the central shrine of worship for the New Vrindaban Hare Krishna community. The temple is open to the public 365 days a year. Worship begins at 5 am, continuing throughout the day, and visitors are welcome to observe at any time.
Walking through the gigantic temple entrance doors, flanked by two sculpted guards, you’ll feel like you’re entering another dimension. Inside, marvel at the replication of an ancient Indian temple with twenty-four pillars topped with wood-carved lions leading up to intricately worked ceilings. Spot the parrots hidden in the four-story-high stained-glass atrium ceiling. The central golden altar, from which the presiding deities of the community give their audience is considered by many to be one of the world’s most beautiful, truly a must-see.
The temple walls are hung with original works of art. Also on display in the temple room is a priceless, hand-carved, teak-wood festival chariot and an incredibly opulent ceremonial golden swing. The temple is a spiritual oasis – the perfect place to meditate or pray.
