President’s Welcome

Welcome to ISKCON Berkeley – The New Jagannātha Puri!

We thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in learning more about the ISKCON temple in Berkeley, also known as the New Jagannātha Puri Temple.   

We are a warm and welcoming community of devotees of Lord Krishna.  I encourage you, along with your family and friends to come visit the temple, take darshan and blessings of the Deities of Srila Prabhupāda, Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityānanda, Lord Jagannātha, Lord Balarāma, and Goddess Subhadra, and Sri Sri Radha Gokulānanda. 

We have devotional programs in the morning and evening every day, and also a major feast every Sunday evening.  There are several festivals throughout the year, like the Jagannātha Ratha-yātrā, Janmāshtami, Rāma Navami, etc.  These programs provide us with opportunities to serve the Lord, make spiritual progress, and come together as a family of devotees.  We like you to meet and develop friendships with the members of our congregation and with the devotees that reside and serve in the temple and become a part of the temple community and be happy.

Thank you for your interest.

Yours in the service of Lord Krishna
