Krishna Temple in Lahore Gets New Idols

Idols of Krishna, Radha, and Hanuman have been installed at the Krishna Mandir in Lahore. Hindu pilgrims visiting Pakistan to celebrate the religious festival of Shivratri at Katas Raj Temple brought the idols at the request of Baba Devender Kumar Ghai, the founding president of the Anglo-Asian Friendship Society (UK).

The temple had been without idols for the past 59 years. The idea of the reinstallation of idols took place during the visit of a Hindu delegation from India last year.

Baba Devender Kumar Ghai was also present during the visit of the delegation and it was decided then to reinstall the idols.

The temple is an important center of Hindu worship in the city.

The temple observes all important Hindu festivals including Shivratri, Holi, Navratri, Ram Navami, Hanuman Jayanti, Hinglaj Mata Yatra, Chaitra Navratri, Krishna Janmashtami, Ganesh Jayanti, Navratri, Dasara and Diwali.
