Artist's rendition of upcoming Radha Gopinath temple now under construction
In 1968, Srila Prabhupada created New Vrindaban, an experimental Vedic community in the hills of West Virginia.
Founder Acharya Srila Prabhupada
“Convert West Virginia into New Vrindaban. I understand the spot is very beautiful and the hills may be renamed as New Govardhana. And if there are lakes, They can be renamed as Syamakunda and Radhakunda.”
- Srila Prabhupada’s Letter / 14 June, 1968
Varsana Swami Maharaj
Imbibing the instructions of Srila Prabhupada,Varsana Swami has been carving out landscapes throughout New Vrindaban since 1972.
His heart is vested in seeing the glory and beauty of the Dham revealed and thus he created Dham Seva, a non-profit entity designed to identify, excavate, glorify and protect the various holy places within the greater New Vrindavan.
