TEMPLE & FARM
As the centrepiece of the farm, the remarkable Sri Sri Radha-Giridhari Temple complex has been captivating visitors ever since it opened in 2004. The temple is at every step a wonderful spiritual experience, from its ornate altar, to its finely crafted doors, large oil paintings, and wonderful Orissan stained-glass windows. Surrounding the temple, the farm maintains many interesting animals, native bush, fruit trees, ponds, numerous living quarters, and even a primary school.
All over the world the food made at Hare Krishna temples is famous for its distinctive and uplifting taste. From simple soul food to extravagant festival menus, Hare Krishna temples and restaurants have been providing food to countless millions for over 40 years.
A common question is what gives this food its exceptional taste and leaves the patron feeling “high”. Most find it difficult to put their finger on why it tastes so good. The answer to this query is that this food is “spiritual food”.
To make this food spiritual, firstly our ingredients are always pure and fresh; we do not use readymade, reused, or highly processed ingredients in our cooking. Secondly, the atmosphere of the temple kitchen is quite unlike any commercial kitchen, as our cooks have a mindset of service to the deities. Finally, the food preparations are offered to the presiding deities, thus sanctifying it.
We have expert cooks with many years of experience in preparing a variety of world foods. If you have experienced a Hare Krishna festival, then you are sure to be amazed at the sheer variety of preparations they are able to create, ranging from various regional Indian preparations, through to continental, and diverse Asian flavours.
