Six new ten by ten foot “relief art painting panels” have just been installed here at ISKCON Baroda, in the temple room/darshan mandap, of the Sri Sri Radha Shyamsundar Mandir, Hare Krishna Land, Gotri Road, Baroda. Thirty three pictures of the panels have just been posted on the internet at the following URL: SriSriRadhaShyamsundarMandirBaroda#

There is a picture of Lord Krishna’s famous “lifting of Govardhan Hill”, Lord Shiva drinking the “halhala” poison from the Eighth Canto of Srimad Bhagavatam, Lord Krishna revealing his “Vishwarup/Virat Swarup” from the Eleventh Chapter of the Bhagavad-gita, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and the Panchatattva performing harinam sankirtan at Navadvip, and Srila Prabhupada and his disciples performing sankirtan at the Jagannath Rathayatra festival at San Francisco, back during 1969.

Descriptions of panels appear in captions below some the pictures just posted the internet. Captions are to be installed below the actual pictures themselves.

Three such panels were recently installed in the “Govinda’s restaurant” dining hall area here at ISKCON Baroda (news had been posted earlier on the internet).

“Govinda’s” should open shortly, just around Diwali day, coming up on October 18, 2009.

We are planning to install two more such “relief art panels” where space is already available in the temple room here at ISKCON Baroda.

Comments and suggestions are most welcome. Please write to me directly with any:

Many thanks to Samba Prabhu (JPS), Temple President of ISKCON Vishakhapatnam (Andhra Pradesh, India) for introducing us to the artist, Sri Raj Kumar Mallick of M/s. Model House, Krishnanagar, Nadia District, West Bengal, who executed the work while residing here these past four months.
