In Celebration of the 5th Anniversary of Vrinda Kunda Temple Opening, we have made an ecstatic schedule of parikramas and festivals from Feb. 18 to Mar. 2. This is one of the best times of the year as the weather is very pleasant and it is not so hot like after Mayapur Festival especially this year as it will be late. Our festival ends on March 2nd so you have time to get to Mayapur Festival which begins on March 6th.
Most of the parikramas are from 21st onwards. Those who are going to the festivals in Tirupati or Anantapur Temple Opening on Nityananda Trayodasi and were wandering what to do until Mayapur Festival can take advantage of our festival Program.
Almost everyday we will be leaving in the morning from Krishna Balaram Mandir and visiting different places of the Divine Pastimes of Radha and Krishna and then returning for lunch, unless otherwise noted. The grand finale, our famous Sankirtan Procession around Nandagram with the ladies in front carrying waterpots with coconuts on top, Kalash Yatra, will be on Sunday March 2nd. And that day will be totally free for everyone!
