ISKCON’s 6,500 square foot, three-storey temple at Gaborone stands bright against the blue Botswanan sky, coloured in vibrant saffron, salmon pink, and white. Each of the three floors of the temple carry their own intricate design and beauty. The first floor is equipped with living quarters for priests and visiting devotees. It also features a 1,300 square foot hall to be used for dining, with a fully fitted kitchen and storeroom attached. Another 1,300 square foot hall on the second floor is used as a temple room, with a grand golden altar for Sri Sri Krishna Balarama on one end and a stage and changing rooms for dramas and cultural programs on the other. Finally, on the third floor is another hall and a peaceful roof terrace, ideal for chanting and meditating.
The temple itself sits on over 17,000 square feet of land, with an intricately designed perimeter wall, a Tulasi garden and a pagoda for peaceful chanting. Despite the peaceful atmosphere, the temple is set in an ideal location in the heart of Gaborone, right next to the city’s Central Business Development.
