Emerging ISKCON Temple in Botswana

May 26,2010 


Gaborone : ISKCON Botswana is functioning in Gaborone for more than a decade. One of the main and foremost function, Krishna Jayanthi, has been celebrated by ISKCON Botswana at Mr.Daleep's house for several years. Around 3 years back ISKCON has got a land allcoation by the Govt. of Botswana for the temple. At that time the Balaji temple's construction was about to complete. Sthapathi Shri.Valasingam and his team, who were engaged in the construction of Balaji Temple were planning to go back to India once the Balaji temple construction work is completed. ISKCON, seeing the marvelous construction of the Balaji temple, talked to Valashingam and engaged them to construct the ISKCON temple.

The temple is constructed in a plot measuring about 5000 square meters. The temple is going to house Krishna and Balarama as main deities along with several other deities. Inside the temple, ten pillers will be depicting the Dasaavatar's of Lord Venkateshwara. The main deities, Krishna and Balrama, which are already installed at Mr.Daleep's hoouse will be reinstalled in the new temple. All other deity vigraha's will be imported from India soon.

The temple work started during the end of 2007, but the progress was slow due to financial constraints. ISKCON is collecting donations, seeking sponsorships and raising funds through various programmes such as Food Festival. After completing the most of the work Shri.Valasingham and some of his team members left to India recenlty. Right now 5 of his team members, Ranjith Kumar, Veerappan, Kannadasan, Muruganantham and Manikandan along with several other local workers continuing with the remaining work. The temple is expected to finish in another 6 month time.
