A guided photographic tour of our new building and

the original Temple of Srila Krishna Das Kaviraj's Sri Sri Vrindavan Chandra.

Early February, 2005

A full view of our new building and Srila Krishna Das Kaviraj Goswami's place of bhajan and Temple of Sri Sri Vrindavan Chandra, on Feb. 8, '05.


Nandu (one of our workers) greets us at the new entrance door.


A right turn after the entrance foyer gives us a view of the original temple structure.


A right turn from the foyer brings us to Maitra Prabhu (right), temple commander, and Chandrapala, marble craftsman extraordinaire, standing on the newly laid marble floor in the large downstairs room intended to be a library.


A closer view of the front of the original altar area.


The right side...


...and the left side.


This is a view of the West side of the nat mandir. The front, entrance and stairway leading upstairs are on the left side. This photo was taken on Jan. 28 while the foundation was being prepared for the marble floor.


This shot shows the right side of the main room and the rear of the building.


Stepping out of the rear door we see the back of our building and the the adjoining property. All the bare bricks have since been covered with cement stucco.


Door to the main hall bathroom.


Sriman Purnananda Prabhu prepared this room on the west side of the building, next to the office, to be used as a bookstall. The metal door opens onto Seva Kunja Road.


This is the office room directly to the left on entering the building from the front.


This is the front entrance foyer on Seva Kunja Road. To the right are the office and bookstall, and to the left is the library.

Our Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math is situated a little to the left on the other side of this road. Stepping out of this door you could walk a few feet to the right, make a left, walk another 30 feet or so and make a left into the Sri Sri Radha Damodar Temple and Bhajan Kutir and Samadhi Mandir of Srila Rupa Goswami. It was there, in one small room, that Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Vedanta Swami Maharaj resided while living in Vrindavan and translating the first three volumes of Srimad-Bhagavatam into English.


This marble ornament is slated to be placed in the centre of the entrance foyer.

Thus ends the ground floor segment.
The upstairs will appear next....
