The History
A new temple complex dedicated to Sri Lakshmi Narasimha is coming up in a half acre complex in the eastern part of Bangalore. This project is dedicated to Srila Prabhupada and is being promoted and built by followers of Srila Prabhupada. This temple is coming up on a piece of land that was earmarked for a mechanized slaughter house(abattoir) but the government had to back track due to stiff and perseverant opposition from the local leaders and citizens who were determined not to let a vacant land in the area turn into a slaughter house for the cows. The local people withstood police action, arrests, court cases and finally after a determined struggle for two decades saved the land and got the government to abandon its plans to set up an abattoir. Now this temple has a goshala with 3 cows and 1 ox!
It is on this land that the temple for Lord Narasimha is coming up. The temple is growing in popularity each day and the phase 1 of the temple complex is being inaugurated during a 11 day festival being celebrated this year between April 24th ( Akshaya Tritiya ) upto May 5th Sri Narasimha Jayanti.
New Palace for Lord Narasimha
Presently Lord Narasimha is being worshipped in a temporary structure and the deity is emerging as one of the most popular place of worship in this part of the city. When Phase 1 is completed, this will be one of the largest temples dedicated to Lord Narasimha. This will also be the house of Nava Narasimha (ahobilam’s traditionally worshiped nine forms of Lord Narasimha). The casting of these deities are about to commence soon. Want to get involved in this seva, kindly contact us.
Nitya Narasimha Utsav
Among the popular events are the monthly Sudarshana Narasihma homa followed by the Maha Abhishek ceremony of Sri Narasimha offered on the second Saturday of every month. This festival attracts hundreds of devotees and starting from this month the ceremony is now webcast live and is streamed on the website www.giridhari.com. The phase 2 of the temple involves the construction of a temple for Gandharvika Giridhar.
Hunderds of ISKCON deovtees and congregation in the area visit the temple regularly and a full fledged temple program goes on at the premises.

Hare Krishna

I am having a great experience of Krishna Consciousness in the temple. Devotees here are so nice to associate with. There is a lot happening in this temple to spread & preach Krishna Consciousness. One the new temple is complete for the pleasure of Sri Sri Gandarvika Giridhari and Sri Lakshmi Narasimhadev, I hope the preaching will expand many folds for the pleasure of Srila Prabhupada. Thanks for this wonderful post.

Your servant,
Bandhu Madhava das
