ISKCON Gurugram Temple near Badshahpur, on Sohna Road, hosted their inauguration this weekend. The grand ceremony took place from 26th to 27th November. Haryana Governor, Sri Bandaru Dattatreya, was present as the Chief Guest at the event. As well as many ISKCON GBC leaders such as Gopal Krishna Goswami, and Bhakti Bringa Govinda Swami.
This complex was donated by ‘Acharya Sudarshan Maharaj’, a renowned educationist, to ISKCON in 2015. He was inspired by ISKCON’s sharing of Vedic culture across the globe and over the years he visited many various ISKCON temples.
The complex and buildings have been renovated over a period of three years and it has now been adorned with majestic Rajasthani architecture with a palace-like look, which makes it a unique cultural attraction to the city of Gurugram. The temple has beautiful Rajasthani and Nathdwara paintings handmade by artisans specially invited from Jaipur. The floor has also been made of makrana marble, the same kind used in the Taj Mahal. The Temple has detailed work on the Teakwood doors, which have been made in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. It is estimated that there would be a total footfall of about 30,000+ guests in the multi-day event.
Part of this new ISKCON Gurugram center will offer special seminars on stress management, relationships, and meditation for all people; from kids to adults as well as for businesses and corporations.
There will also be facilities for free food distribution to the needy on a daily basis.
On November 26th was the installation of the beautiful Radha Krishna deities, for the temple, named by name Sri Sri Radha Damodar.
