Srila Prabhupada’s Prophesies

In January 1991, after sixteen years of determined and dedicated endeavour, Gour Govinda Swami fulfilled the instruction of his most beloved spiritual master, when the Śrī Śrī Kṛṣṇa-Balarāma Mandir was opened. Lord Jagannātha came of His own accord and also Śrīla Prabhupāda foretold, the Śrī Śrī Kṛṣṇa-Balarāma Mandir is now the centre of the city attracting thousands of people to Kṛṣṇa consciousness.

Gour Govinda Swami introduced Ratha-yātrā and Candana-yātrā in Bhubaneswar, in accordance with the observation of these festivals in Jagannātha-Purī. After acquiring nearby land in 2004, a large Gundica Temple for Lord Jagannātha is under construction in Bhubaneswar and is nearing completion by the efforts of followers and disciples of Gour Govinda Swami.
