The devotees in Turkey are working very hard to finish the renovation work of the newly rented place in downtown Istanbul. The Govinda Cafe is scheduled to open for a trial period in two weeks, and the official opening will take place in about a month.
In Turkey Krishna-consciousness is allowed to perform only a very limited amount of public activities. Govinda Cafe will serve as an important tool to distribute prasadam and present the culture of Krishna-consciousness to the Turkish society.
