Although our temple has numerous departments performing various different services, the main focus is on the deity worship, prasadam distribution, studying and distributing Srila Prabhupada’s books, goshala, devotee care and 24 hour kirtan of the holy names of the Lord, and all other functions carried out in the temple are all meant to support and encourage the betterment and success of these key services.
The Sri Sri Krishna Balaram Mandir, situated in the Raman Reti area of Vrindavan, holds a special significance for devotees of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. This grand temple represents the fulfilled dream of Srila Prabhupada, Founder Acharya of ISKCON, who wished to construct a temple of unparalleled beauty for the worship of the transcendental brothers Krishna and Balaram in the same village where They played more than five thousand years ago. Srila Prabhupada directly oversaw all aspects of design and construction and personally called the Lord to come and accept the worship of His devotees from around the world. He said, “Lord Balaram is the source of spiritual strength, and I have built this temple just to give strength to the devotees”.
