ISKCON Temple Ahmedabad

This is just one of The International Society of Krishna Consciousness’ 600 worldwide temples. The Ahmedabad temple is a wonderful example of an ISKCON temple.

It is a beautiful shrine dedicated to promoting individual and worldwide peace. This sect was founded by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada in 1966. He was instructed by his guru to bring the Vedic teachings to the English speaking world. Their teachings are based on the Bhagavad Gita and Srimad Bhagavatum.

Founded in New York, the Hare Krishna Movement, as it began to be called, prospered and grew and there were 108 temples when the founder died, just 11 years later. The organization runs food relief programs in dozens of cities around the world.
