Pilgrims travel thousands of miles across the world to cast their eyes over the beautiful deities at ISKCON’s Krishna-Balarama Mandir in Vrindavana, India. But now they can visit Krishna’s birthplace without leaving their homes.

With the help of donors and dedicated volunteers, website Krishna.com has installed a live webcam in the ISKCON temple, where the presiding deities are Sri Sri Krishna-Balarama, Sri Sri Radha-Shyamasundara, and Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai.

The current camera shows the temple interiors and Sri Sri Krishna-Balarama’s altar, and refreshes its image every twenty seconds. Cameras for the two other altars will be installed as donations to pay for them come in.

Live sound will also be added to the broadcast soon, making for a fully immersive experience. “We have a volunteer who has flown to Vrindavana and will be there for the next six months, ready to set up the live webcast sound,” says volunteer manager Manu Dasa. “We just need a few more pieces of equipment to make it happen, so any donations are much appreciated.”
