Bhaktivedanta Manor - ISKCON Temple

Bhaktivedanta Manor, a Gaudiya Vaishnava temple in the Hertfordshire countryside of England in the village of Aldenham near Watford, is owned and run by ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness or the Hare Krishna movement). Standing in 70 acres (280,000 squire meters), it is one of the most visited Radha-Krishna temples in Europe. The late Beatles musician George Harrison gave the Manor as an offering of devotion to the founder of the Hare Krishna movement, A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Prabhupada renamed the property as Bhaktivedanta Manor.
