Hare Krishna Golden Temple

Hare Krishna Golden Temple is located at Banjara Hills, Hyderabad, India.

About 700 years ago the Lord manifested himself as Swayambhu Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy at Road No. 12 Banjara Hills. Along with Lord Swayambhu Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy, Lord Shiva also self-manifested himself as Swayambhu Sri Panchajanyeshwara Swamy at the same place. The Hare Krishna Golden Temple is the 1st Golden Temple in Telangana and this transcendental temple of the Lord has a 50 foot Golden Dhwaja Stambh, 4600 square foo Maha Mandapam and five golden stairs Rajagopuram. The uniqueness of the Lord’s manifestation at this place is that the Lord and his eternal consort Sri Lakshmi Devi are in a self-manifest standing posture where Lord Narasimhadev appears in a blissful divine state and Mother Lakshmi Devi is mercifully showing her Abhaya Hastha and blessing all the devotees. The Temple has Harinam Japa Mantapa located right after the Dhvaja Stambha. It provides a unique way to remember and glorify Lord Krishna by chanting His holy names while proceeding for His darshan. Visitors to the temple can choose to either go through the Harinam Mantapa or directly proceed for the darshan of Lord Shri Lakshmi Narasimha. The Japa Mantapa has 108 steps and on every step, the devotees stand and chant the Hare Krishna maha-mantra. There is a rare Saligrama (Shaligrama or Salagrama) shila kept in the Garbhalayam of the presiding deity Swayambhu Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy. This Saligrama Shila was found in Gandaki River (Near Muktinath Temple, Nepal) and miraculously arrived at this Kshetram by the inconceivable potency of the Lord.

Hare Krishna Golden Temple has two shrines:

1. The first shrine is dedicated to Swayambhu Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy

2. The Second shrine is dedicated to Sri Radha-Govinda.
