ISKCON Mayapur is one of the most popular world
headquarters of ISKCON. ISKCON is famed as the complex of Krishna’s devotees.
It has a big campus in Mayapur which includes the chandrodaya Temple, the
Temple of The Vedic Planetarium (TOVP), Srila Prabhupada’s Pushpa Samadhi
Mandir, Srila Prabhupada’s Bhajan Kutir,
Goshala, Mayapur Institute for Higher Education (MIHE), Bhakti vedanta Academy
(boys gurukul) and Sri Mayapur International School. ISKCON Mayapur is located
in Sri Navadvipa Dham, which is the birthplace of Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu
and thus is the largest Hare Krishna community in the world. There are several
guesthouses, restaurants, shops for daily needs, a pharmacy and a clinic inside
the each premise. Every year, Vaishnava festivals are celebrated with a great
pomp and zeal. Worth special mention are the Gaura Purnima festivities like
Navadvipa Mandal Parikrama and Kirtan Mela which attract many thousands of devotees
ISKCON Mayapur is one of the 20 sacred places,
most visited in the whole world with almost 5 million* visitants/guests around the
year. Mayapur Temple has the same quantity of visitants just like in the St.
Peter’s Basilica Vatican, Rome, which is 7 million people. And it is the same
quantity of people who have visited Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall or Western Wall.
Of course that, after the New Mayapur Chandrodaya Mandir will be ready we’ll
have much more opportunity to spread the glories of the Kali Yuga* Pavana Sri
Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, worldwide. We can see how Srila Prabhupada brilliantly
encouraged and inspired his disciples to do this amazing service. He gave every
detail about the new temple and it is impossible for us to measure how valuable
it will be for the Sankirtan* Movement.
