Delhi Iskcon Temple

The ISKCON Temple of Delhi, or the Sri Sri Radha Parthasarathi Mandir is one the largest temple complexes in India. Famous for its Vaishnav teachings, it was designed and built by Achyut Kanvinde, who was commissioned in 1993 and was opened in 1998, when it was inaugurated by former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. ISKCON, or the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, also known as the Hare Krishna Movement, was founded in 1966 A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada to spread Vaishnava teachings and the practice of Bhakto Yoga. It is now an international movement with more than 400 centres worldwide. It is devoted to the worship of Lord Krishna as the Supreme Deity and of Radha as the personification of Divine Love.

The Sri Sri Radha Parthasarathi Mandir is a three altar structure made of brick and painted in elegant red and white hues. The first altar holds the image of Sri Gauri Nital, an incarnation of Chaitanya Dev who lived in West Bengal in the 18th century. The central and main altar holds the statues of Lord Krishna, Radha Devi and the eight principle gopis. The third altar holds the figures of Lord Ram, Devi Sita, Lord Lakshman and Lord Hanuman. 24 highly trained priests offer 6 artists to the gods every day in accordance with ISKCON’s strict regulations.

The ISKCON Temple can be found in the Hare Krishna Hills in the East Kailash area in New Delhi.
