God Is Everywhere So Why Do We Need To Visit Temples?

“With a single fragment of Myself, I pervade and support this entire universe.” 

(Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.42

Despite his omnipresence, we couldn’t see him because to see lord Krishna, the supreme personality of Godhead, we require spiritual vision. In temples, we associate with people who have such great spiritual vision and by their association, we tend to enhance our spiritual vision, and this helps us to learn to perceive Lord’s presence in the form of “ARCHA-VIGRAHA”. 

What Are The Activities Performed By Temples? 

Vedic ancient temples’ history shows and even scriptures describe, how temples contribute to the upliftment of society as a whole. We can see temples such as Sri Jagannath Puri Dham, Tirupati Balaji, Udupi Krishna and Iskcon temples etc. feeding thousands of people for free. Temples provide education and teach perfect way of leading life.

Why We Should Build Temples? 

Temples are not just a structure. According to Vedic philosophy, temples are places where the lord is not only worshipped but also society is served with different means.

 ISKCON temples are sacred places as well as centres of education, preaching and cultural activities.

Why We Should Contribute Together To Build Temples – 

  • It is described in different scriptures that just by contributing to building temples one can get so much of spiritual benefits. 

Srimad Bhagavatam 11.27.51-52 explains- 

  • “By installing the Deity of the Lord, one becomes king of the entire earth, by building a temple for the Lord, one becomes ruler of the three worlds, just by serving and performing worship to the deities, one goes to the planet of Lord Brahma, and by performing all three of these activities one gets a divine form like My own. But those who simply engage themself in devotional service with no consideration of fruitive outcomes attain Me. Thus, whoever worships Me according to the process I have described will ultimately attain pure devotional service unto Me.” 


 “If you build a temple of Lord Krishna in this world, then Lord Krishna will build a palace for you in the spiritual world- Vaikuntha”.


ISKCON Ghaziabad is building a new temple in wave city Ghaziabad and this project has been named “pride of Ghaziabad”.

ISKCON’S different initiatives for youth and for societal benefit have been praised for years. ISKCON temple has contributed in so many ways to make society a better place for everyone.

We need to build a temple so that our services can reach every corner of the world. We just don’t build a temple, we build education centres, free prasadam centres, free counselling centres, we build a place where people can find real happiness.
