Temple

ISKCON Sigatoka Temple houses the deities of Sri Radha and Krishna in the form of Sri Radha Damodar. They are the prime deities of the temple alongside other smaller sized deities of Sri Gaura Nitai and Lord Narsingha Dev at the altar for darshan. Sri Radha Damodar deities were handpicked and carved in India from precious marble stones by H.H Vedavyasapriya Swami. The temple has beautiful diorama’s depicting stories from Ramayana and Bhagvata Purana and is adorned with unique, colorful and artistic painting imported from India. The simhasans or the altar is made of finest quality teak wood and golden leaf domes prepared by finest handcrafters. The temple project was initiated in early 2000 by two enthusiastic devotees, Her Grace Gita Kirti Dasi and Her Grace Gurusmarna Dasi as a dedication to their spiritual master H.H Tamal Krishna Goswami who desired of a magnificent temple for the people in Sigatoka to worship Sri Radha and Krishna. What followed next were hard work, perseverance, patience and determination by these two women who put against all odds in life to fulfill the desire of their spiritual master. The temple follows brahma-gaudiya madhava sampradaya in the disciplic succession of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and under the guidance of His Divine Grace A. C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.
