Giridhari’s Gosdhala, a unit of ISKCON HBR, Sri Narasimha Giridhari Mandir, is located in Kacharkanahalli, East Bangalore. This goshala, for cow protection, was founded in 2011 with 2 cows and 2 bulls. It has now grown to a family of 60, including cows, bulls and calves belonging to various indigenous breeds. Cow rearing and cow protection have always been an integral part of Vaishnava life style and Giridhari’s Goshala facilitates this seva opportunity for everyone in the community.
This goshala stands in the place that was previously earmarked for the construction of an abattoir. But with the support of the local community, the prayers of devotees, and the Divine plan of Krishna, the desecration of this place in the name of an abattoir was averted and instead became His divine abode and an important landmark in East Bangalore. Giridhari’s Goshala, touted as the Best Goshala in Bangalore East, strives to improve in every way possible to provide the best living space for the cows here. With this objective, there is some exciting news in store! Extension of Giridhari’s goshala is underway to accommodate its growing family comfortably, and everyone is welcome to contribute towards this exciting project. The cost per square feet is Rs. 1499/ only.
