In the city of monuments, ISKCON Mysore plans to build Nava Brindavan Dham – a spectacular cultural monument for social and spiritual upliftment. It was the desire of Srila Prabhupada, our Founder-Acharya, that monumental temples be built – temples that disseminate spiritual knowledge to all, thereby creating a world of unity and peace. Nava Brindavan Dham will be a grand religious and cultural complex, with landscape featuring attractive musical and light shows depicting Indian culture and tradition.
Designed in neo-classical style, the cultural complex on nine acres of land, harmoniously integrates the age old charm of Hoysala architecture and modern architectural forms, blending ethnicity with abstractness. This prestigious project is estimated to cost Rs.120 crores and shall enrich the glory of Indian heritage. Nava Brindavan Dham will be a centre for disseminating the profound message of the Bhagavad-gita and Srimad Bhagavatam to everyone. It is a project to support preservation of Vedic culture, tradition and sanatana dharma.
On the auspicious occasion of Vijaya Dashami Tuesday, 11th October 2016, the Bhumi Puja of the Nava Brindavan Dham project was conducted at ISKCON, Mysore. Senior leaders of the ISKCON Bangalore group Madhu Pandit Dasa (President ISKCON Bangalore), Sri Chanchalapathi Dasa (Senior Vice President ISKCON Bangalore), Sri Jai Chaitanya Dasa (President ISKCON Mysore), Stoka Krishna Dasa (President Hare Krishna Movement Chennai) and Sri Vasudeva Keshav Dasa (Vice President ISKCON Bangalore) participated in the Bhumi Puja.
