ISKCON Bhubaneswar, Krishna Balaram temple - video gallery
To know the history of the Krishna Balaram Temple, Bhubaneswar, we have to go back to the year 1975 when Srila Prabhupada instructed Gour Govinda Swami to build a temple. Gour Govinda Swami came to Bhubaneswar carrying instructions in his heart. The first thing he did was to erect a mud hut to stay in. He began to preach in Bhubaneswar and translating Srila Prabhupada’s books into Oriya. Gradually some local devotees came forward to help him. From there he began his mission to fulfill Srila Prabhupada’s desire for a temple in Bhubaneswar. As instructed by Srila Prabhupada, Gour Govinda Swami installed Sri Gour Nitai, Krishna Balaram and Jagannath, Baladeva, Subhadra Devi on three altars and named the temple Sri Krishna Balaram Temple.
