In September 1965, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada left the shores of India to fulfill the prophesy made five hundred years ago by Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu that his name will be chanted in every town & village of the world. In this Kali-Yuga, the centers of Krishna Consciousness are like ocean in the desert. One such oasis of spiritual shelter is the Shri Shri Krishna Balaram Mandir. Srila Prabhupada has delivered Sri Sri Radha Govindaji to the whole world. It was his expressed desire to have a very beautiful KRISHNA BALRAM Temple in Jaipur.
“So I want to open a duplicate Krishna Balarama temple in Jaipur. I am sending separate copies of pictures of our Krishna Balarama Temple in Vrindaban. Of course, there is also Radha Krishna and Gaura Nitai. I wish That You have some land in Jaipur and help us in constructing a temple like in Vrindavan…”
