History of ISKCON Baltimore

Abode of Nitai-Gaura Sundar, Sri Radha Madhav and Jagannath,Baldev and Subhadra

This photo was taken when Srila Prabhupada arrived at New Kulina Gram (ISKCON Baltimore) after seeing a beautiful photo of Sri Sri Nitai Gaurasundara while staying at the ISKCON Potomac temple.

Srila Prabhupada physically came only one time to ISKCON Baltimore and instantly created a holy place of pilgrimage for all Vaishnava devotees of Lord Sri Krishna on July 7th, 1976 at the former old age home turned into a temple.

The physical property of 200 Bloomsbury Avenue, in Catonsville, Maryland is one of the original 108 temples founded by His Divine Grace and one of the now less than 108 Original ISKCON temple properties still carrying on the missionary work of Srila Prabhupada. This point is noteworthy simply because not many of the original ISKCON properties are still in use by ISKCON, whatever the reason behind the change of venue.
