ISKCON, Sri Sri Rädha Veni Mädhava mandir is situated on the bank of holy Yamuna river. This mandir was started in the year 1995 and slowly the ashram is being developed into a full-fledged ISKCON temple. The beautiful deity of the divine couple Sri Sri Radha-Venimädhava Ji was installed in the year 2003. We have a small Guest House (15 rooms), a go-shala (35 cattle) and a small patch of land to cultivate.
The significance of Prayäga:
Triveni Sangam: Confluence of the three holy rivers Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswaté, where Magha mela takes place annually and Kumbha melas, the biggest religious gathering of the world as well.
Dasasvamedha Ghät: Lord Brahma performed the first ten horse sacrifices here in Satya Yuga. About 500 years ago Lord Caitanya Mahäprabhu gave diksa & sikñsa to Srilä Rüpa Goswami here at this ghat.
Akshaya vat: Immortal banyan tree, Supreme Lord Rämacandra stayed here for a short while at Akshaya bata.
Bharadwaj Ashrama: Lord Ramachandra, Lakshmana and Sita Devi came here on the way to their exile.
Veni Mädhava: The presiding deities of Prayäg ksetra are Sri Sri Veni Mädhava, here Lord Caitanya Mahäprabhu rested for about a period of 15 days.
Prayäga has a great legacy of being the place of Srila Prabhupada's former residence and pharmacy. Prayäga is also the diksä bhümi of Srila Prabhupäda. He resided here for 13 years and envisioned the propagation of suddha-bhakti throughout the world.
*Vrindavana is overnight journey by train, *Ayodhya the birth place of Lord Ramachandra is about 170 kms, *Chitrakut, where Lord Ramachandra stayed during his exile period is also about 150 kms and *Varanasi is also about 120 kms from here.
