Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), currently having more than 850 centres worldwide, established Shri Shri Krishna Balaram Temple in Vrindavan in 1975. This area is known as Raman Reti where over 5,000 years ago Lord Krishna, along with Lord Balaram with Their cowherd friends used to herd Their cows in the beautiful and soothing sands of the area.

Srila Prabhupada, coming in the ancient Brahma Madhva Gaudiya Vaishnava Sampradaya, himself installed the beautiful Deities of Shri Shri Krishna Balaram, Shri Shri Radha Shyamsundar, Shri Lalita & Shri Vishakha along with Shri Shri Gaura Nitai. A nearby Goshala was also established by Srila Prabhupada.

The Krishna Balaram temple has now become the most important temple for the worldwide ISKCON society. Along with the highest standards of Deity worship this temple, which is now visited by millions of visitors annually, also has a continuous nonstop Kirtan taking place since 1975.

The temple complex houses the Samadhi Mandir of Srila Prabhupada who in 1977, at the age of 81 years, left this world. One will also find his original house just behind the temple room.

Unfortunately, most of the buildings, including the Gurukul complex, built in 1975, have now become structurally unsafe. This has been confirmed by structural engineers who strongly recommend that the old buildings be demolished for obvious safety reasons.

As a consequence of this finding ISKCON Vrindavan management has been working with a team of professional consultants to produce a suitable and environmentally friendly design for the new proposed facilities.

With just over 2,00,000 square feet of area to be constructed the proposed design has many features that will fulfil the needs of the community for many generations to come. There will be a new bigger guest house, new large Govinda’s restaurant, new spacious gift shops area, new office spaces, ample underground parking, and considerable landscaped open spaces. There will also be an extension to the current popular Srila Prabhupada museum.

We would like to complete the new facilities, and offer them to Srila Prabhupada, in two years' time when 50th anniversary of the Krishna Balaram temple will be grandly celebrated. You are cordially invited, with your family, to be part of these celebrations and to help rebuild Srila Prabhupada his home.
