Nandafalva Hindu Temple and Community in Hungary Turns 30 – Special celebrations on August 1



Nandafalva Hindu community in Hungary turns 30 years old on August 1, 2009. The community was formed in 1979 – several young adherents of Hindu teachings led by Swami B.A. Narayan formed the Nandfalva Hindu Community. Nandafalva is named after the Hindu holy place called Nandagram. After 20 years of activity, the Hindu Temple opened its doors in 2000 AD. The temple practices Vaishnavism.

The Hindu Temple at Nandafalva is a brilliant fusion of Hungarian and Hindu architectural styles. The temple is inspired by the Orissan style temple architecture. The 100 kilo bell residing in the temple tower resounds daily in accordance with Hungarian custom.

On the 30th anniversary of its founding, the Nandafalva Hindu Community is presenting visitors a special festival. Beginning at 4:00 pm on August 1, 2009, the Open House aims to exhibit the valuable gifts of Vedic culture. The event will take place at 15 locations in the Sanctuary Park around the temple.

Visiting all the locations, the guests will gain an authentic view into the life of ancient Indian culture. The guests may choose among various interesting programs: a yoga demonstration, the basics of a vegetarian cooking course, pantomime, a presentation of a Hindu religious service, Hindu songs, recitation of Vedic mantras, Odissi dance lecture demonstration, Henna body art, an Indian bazaar and much more.

At the end of the program, a public Hindu service will be demonstrated.

The Nandafalva Hindu Temple can be reached from the road connecting Balastya with Forraskut. From Highway M5, take the exit toward Forraskut at the 146-km marker. It is only 2 kilometers from the exit.
