Bhaktivedanta Manor

In the Hertfordshire countryside just north of London, Bhaktivedanta Manor, complete with its farmlands, beautiful gardens and temple is a real sanctuary for the soul. Open all year round to visitors and students of ancient wisdom, the temple offers a great experience with tours of the shrine, gardens and compassionate farm. Here are the rooms of the famous Hare Krishna guru Srila Prabhupada, to whom George Harrison gifted this iconic mock Tudor mansion. We have inspirational talks, yoga classes, mantra meditation, vegetarian cooking classes and various retreats.

Bhaktivedanta Manor was established in 1973 by His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. The estate was donated to ISKCON by the late Beatle, George Harrison.

It’s been a great experience, the peoples here are super nice. Especially the supervisor KC, I felt like home since the first day I arrived. And the Indian foods are delicious (despite the coriander). The works are easy but beware of the occasional hot weather. Before you go, checkout about the Hare Krishna movement, it may

It was the best experience ever. I love the farm and also the life in the temple. It was beautifbul to know about the Hare Krsna community, feel the love and the devotional service everywhere it's something beautiful. The farm is really nice and I had a lot of fun learning how to grow vegetables! Amazing place to get in touch with the nature, peaceful enviroment and amazing food! HARE KRISHNA I hope to come back some day!

Its was a good experience in a very calm and relaxing environment. But be aware that you are not gonna be sleeping in the manor, It will be in shared caravans. Also, food is ok if you like indian vegan cuisine. That's the only option.
