About

Thanks to kind and generous donation from a lot of you, we have raised almost 90% of the required amount. Boiler and Radiators installation is almost finished. Now, the supplier needs to be paid fully and therefore, all we ask is a small donation to complete the last mile of this fulfilling project.

The Krishna Island is on a lake in county Fermanagh of Northern Ireland, about 2 hours drive from Belfast / Dublin. On the Island the only house is of Hare Krishna, which has been open to devotees and visitors for the last 30 years. It has been a spiritual and cultural hub for all visitors including devotees and Indian community. Every time we visit the temple, we feel welcomed and rejuvenated. The serene and iconic location on an island on the lake amongst the natural surrounding makes it special too.
If you have not visited the temple yet, please watch the video on this page, visit the temple, and experience the divinity yourself. We are sure that you would love the experience.

Event details

Urgent appeal for your kind donation

Temple has had its ups and downs. No matter what, despite harsh weather, lack of resources, and remote location, it has stood tall to serve its visitors, and Deity worship has been performed every day by a resident Poojaari. Years of lack of maintenance due to paucity of funds have led to deteriorating situation within the building. Temple, therefore has a long term development plan of 'Govindadwipa New Development'. But now, it needs urgent attention to keep itself heated during harsh winters so that Deities are not cold, it remains inhabitable for Pujaaris, and there is no further deterioration of building due to cold and damp inside.
The old heating system is about 70 years old and has been expanded as and when required. In the last few years, the underground heating didn’t work properly, there were not enough radiators and there were not enough devotees or dry wood to keep the fires lit. A separate wood boiler installed has not been practical either. Now the system needs upgrading so that a viable and sustainable heating source is available to keep Krishna, devotees, visitors, and Pujaaris warm now and in future.
