Beautiful exotic plants embellish the grounds and peacock freely roam the property.

The view all around is breathtaking!

Many spiritually inclined or just curious people visit this place to experience ashram life where they can participate in the practices of Krishna Bhakti, yoga and meditation on a daily basis or longer.

The heart of this place is a Temple available for quiet meditation or for participation in conferences, ceremonies and kirtans -devotional singing.


For the volunteers, there is plenty of opportunities to engage in yoga, meditation and other spiritual activities (if they desire) besides daily required activities like helping with general maintenance, cleaning, gardening, orchards, cows, kitchens, etc.
