Hare Krishna Mumbai 1.0
Hare Krishna Land (ISKCON Juhu) is set upon four acres of primeland and a stone throw away from Juhu beach. A.C. BhaktivedantaSwami Prabhupada, founder of ISKCON, inspired the construction ofone of India’s most beautiful temple of Lord Krishna in Mumbai.Thepresiding Deities at the temple are Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai, Sri SriRadha Rasabihari and Sri Sri Sita Rama Laxman Hanuman.The Deitieswere personally installed by His Divine Grace A. C. BhaktivedantaSwami Prabhupada.In early 70’s when Juhu was considered a remoteand obscure part of the city, to envision a temple rising here wasbeyond anyone’s imagination. However, fighting against many oddsSrila Prabhupada acquired the Juhu property (which is presentlyHare Krishna Land) and promised Sri Sri Radha Rasabihari Deitieswho were then housed in small shack “My dear Sir, please remainhere, and I shall build a beautiful temple for You”. SrilaPrabhupada requested his disciples to construct a silver andteakwook simhasana for Sri Sri Radha Rasabihari on a marble altarand Their temple should have marble domes more than a hundred feethigh.Today the magnificent temple complex is one of the mostvisited in the country. It is a spiritual oasis in the dry anddemanding material life of the financial and commercial capital ofIndia. Opened in 1978, the complex includes a spacious marbletemple, a recently renovated auditorium, a huge restaurant and atwin towered seven-storey guest house where visitors can stay andparticipate in the daily spiritual programs of the temple.
