ISKCON Vrindavan Temple, Vrindavan Overview

Also known as Sri Sri Krishna Balaram Mandir, ISKCON Vrindavan is a dream fulfilled of Swami Prabhupada (the founder-acharya of ISKCON), who wished to build a temple for the brothers - Krishna and Balaram - in the same holy city where they played together several centuries ago. Located in the Raman Reti area of Vrindavan, ISKCON temple has become the major attraction in the city and is thronged by devotees from nearby Delhi and all over the world. People visiting the divine temple are spellbound by the Aarti and Bhagavad Geeta classes held here every day.

The three altars at ISKCON Vrindavan are the seats of Sri Sri Gaura Nitai, Shri Krishna and Balaram and Sri Sri Radha Shyamasundara along with Lalita and Vishakha. The presiding deity of the temple, however, is Lord Krishna-Balaram. There are two idols on the central slab of the temple which depict Krishna and Balarama, who were brothers. On the right dais are the idols of their friends. On the left side is a statue of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu with Nityananda, and of Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and his spiritual coach Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura. Krishna-Balaram Mandir implements great ethics of hygiene and deity adoration in the whole of Vrindavan.
