Iskcon Temple Patna – The Home of Lord Krishna

Spirituality is something that has been a part of me since a long time. As I am entering into a higher pace of life, I am looking for options which can give me eternal satisfaction and thorough pleasure. Busy schedule and work load have made lives mechanical and my body and mind crave for some relaxation. Therefore, in the fourth day of Patna visit, I decided to go to the Iskcon temple with my kids. Iskcon temple, which is managed and operated by the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, has its own branches in almost every state of India. Even there are shrines of Lord Krishna in West Bengal, but the one in Patna is said to be more enchanting and worth visiting, though the temple is still under construction. So I planned the day and headed towards Iskcon.

The Iskcon temple in Patna is situated in the Budha Marg in Patna. The temple was still under construction when I visited. The works were to be completed by the end of 2012, but due to some reason the deadline has been extended to 2014. The temple sprawls across a land of 2 acres and comprises of meditation, spiritual, medical consultancy center, auditorium, restaurant, guesthouse, community kitchen, etc. The deities are placed in the first floor where there are three durbars already built. There is a dome in the hall and the first hall is named as Radha Bankey Bihari Ji Durbar. It consists of the idols of Lord Krishna along with His consort Radha, Lalita and Vishakha. The second hall belongs to the deity Lord Rama, His consort Maa Sita and Lakshman and Hanuman. It is known as Ram Durbar. The third one is called Gaur Nitai Durbar and it has the idols of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and Nityanand Mahaprabhu. All the idols are said to be kept on 24-carat gold plated thrones.
