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.

Learning & Fun


It was an excellent experience!! It was my first time volunteering and it was great! The food, the people, the temple, the community, I learned a lot from everybody. The only thing I would suggest is to choose summer time, but if you don't mind the cold weather, you will as well enjoy the time at the farm. For sure, I will do it again!!

some("I loved my stay here. It is a wonderful community, I really liked the freedom they gave to us volunteers and appreciation for our work. There is plenty of food most of the times. Working schedule is 6 hours a day. We men were a little too cramped into the caravan and was not very clean. It is a great place to learn. I would recommend learning of Hare Krishna beforehand, its an amazing religion.")

I spent three weeks at the farm, had lots of fun and enjoyed every work done there. The people were very nice and friendly, easy to work with and the food was excellent. Participating to their chanting and ceremonies has been a very interesting cultural experience.

Everyone is super nice here. I loved learning about the farm, temple, and cows. It was a great experience! I met a lot of wonderful people. Be prepared to work ;) and if interested, to learn about the temple movement. Take advantage of your stay and participate in what ever you can. I certainly did take it all in. Thanks again to everyone there!
