It’s 25 years now since the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) Nairobi (Hare Krisha Temple) constructed its temple structure along West Ngara Road, Nairobi. An elaborate program was hosted at the temple for three days, underscoring the auspiciousness of the celebration, with devotees from all walks of life flocking the temple to take part in various programs.

Among the activities that took place between 10th and 12th January included prayers, sacrifices for installation of a new flag, chakras on the dome and bathing (Abhishek) ceremonies. Donors and devotees who have selflessly supported the activities of the temples for years, were also appreciated. To cap it all off, devotees were treated to an entertainment session featuring Indian classical dances, a variety show and a feast, otherwise known as prasadam.

The ceremony was attended by dignitaries including Deputy High Commissioner of India – Ashish Sinha. Head of ISKCON East Africa HH Gopal Krishna Maharaj emphasised on the importance of spreading the teachings of Bhagavad-gita and Srimad-Bhagavatam to all Kenyans as well as praying for peace and prosperity of Kenya

ISKCON Nairobi opened its doors in 1994 and has been actively promoting the ideals of Krishna consciousness through Srimad-Bhagavatam classes, Bhaktivedanta College of Education & Culture (BCEC) and Nama Hatta programs featuring enlightening lectures that give deep insight into the
scriptures among other activities.
