MYSURU: International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) will build a Lord Krishna temple on sprawling nine acres at Jayanagar in Mysuru.
The temple ‘Nava Brindavan Dhama’, will be built on Hoysala style of architecture at a cost of `150 crore. The complex is awaiting US Green Building Council certification. The construction works will be completed by 2021.

Governor Vaju Bhai Rudhabai Vala, after laying the foundation stone for the temple here on Sunday, highlighted how people are leading a materialistic life, and are suffering due to lack of mental satisfaction and peace.
“One should read stories of Rama and Lord Krishna and the way Krishna helped the poor and downtrodden. Every individual has potential to earn money, and one should use it for the welfare of society,” said the governor, who is a lifetime member of ISKCON.

ISKCON president H G Madhu Pandit Dasa announced setting up of free residential schools all over the country for underprivileged children.
“Our plan is to provide free education to 50,000 students all over the country. As part of the programme, Nava Brindavan Dhama will have a free residential school for 2,000 underprivileged children near Mysore in Mahadevpura which will be expanded to colleges eventually.”
“Our traditional education system has been replaced by the western system over the last couple of centuries,” he added.
