Day 5: Opening of the Radha-Krishna Temple and the Installation of Sri Sri Radha-Londonisvara

THURSDAY 28TH NOVEMBER

14th December 1969 was a date set by Srila Prabhupada for the temple opening and the installation of Radha-Krishna Deities, a date that was set without yet having any Radha-Krishna Deities.

In this festival, absorb yourself in the sweet story behind the appearance of Sri Sri Radha-Londonisvara. They are unique in that They seemingly appeared by Their own will less than two weeks before the temple opening, manifested by Srila Prabhupada’s strong desire for Radha-Krishna Deities in London.
