Attractions

Hare Krishna Temple

83 Bealey Avenue
Christchurch, 8013
+64 3 366 5174
Behind the facade of a fine old two-storey villa is Hare Krishna Temple, fragrant with incense and steeped in ancient spiritualism. A pleasant oasis, featuring a tiled foyer and a ceiling adorned with a superb mural depicting Lord Chaitanya and his disciples chanting. Executed by a local art student, the facial features of the figures in the mural have a Polynesian look. A Murti statue sits cross-legged in an alcove beneath twin stained-glass peacocks. A conservatory lets in sunlight and protects several sacred tulsi trees. There is a children's play area on the small lawn outside.
