Krishna Lila Theme Park – a unique religious tourism destination in Bengaluru.
The Krishna Lila Theme Park is a magnificent cultural complex being set up at Vaikuntha Hill, a 28 acre hillock on Kanakapura Road, Bengaluru for the presentation of the message and pastimes from the great epics of India. This will become yet another important cultural and religious tourism destination in Bengaluru with the characteristics and societal benefits as any other tourism project.
The grand-scale project with an estimated cost of Rs. 700 crores is conceived by the devotees of ISKCON Bangalore and is an unprecedented historical venture being attempted for the first time in the country.
Today, our children’s minds are obsessed with Superman, Spiderman and such other characters coming from the West. Hence the project aims to impress upon the younger generation the glorious pastimes of our Vedic heroes like Krishna, Rama and Hanuman and instill in their minds the deep values they represent.
Srila Prabhupada (Founder-Acharya of International Society for Krishna Consciousness) taught the principles of yukta vairagya: Not to reject something of this world as material, but suitably engage everything in Lord Sri Krishna’s service for the upliftment of humanity. These principles of yukta vairagya that he taught underlie the Krishna Lila Theme Park project, where modern technology and management practices converge for the execution of this mega endeavor in the service of God and mankind.
There will be a shrine to honor the contributions of Srila Prabhupada to the modern society. This will present his life and works through dioramas in elaborate thematic settings to tell the most moving story of human sacrifice and compassion. The complex will also contain several classrooms, audio-visual halls, Vedic library, staff rooms, administrative offices and related facilities for the dissemination of Vedic wisdom.
