New ISKCON temple opens in Sigatoka, Fiji. The temple of Sri Radha Damodar and Dharmashala is located in Sigatoka Town. It is on one of the highest hilltops in the heart of Sigatoka Town overlooking the river, Melrose bridge and sea. Just 5 minutes walk from the main town, the temple will have a wonderful scenic view, and will be accessible from the main town as well as a private driveway. The temple site is on freehold land.
ISKCON Sigatoka is run by Miss Gita Kirti Dasi and Dr Gurusmarna Dasi from their private residence. They are the pioneers for the project and have dedicated their life in spreading the message of Godhead and helping the public for the benefit of everyone. And building this temple will assist them in doing so. At present, there are weekly Sunday Programs at the centre which has lectures from Srimad Bhagavad Gita , Kirtans, arati and full feast (vegetarian meals for general public). Major festival days such as Ramnavmi, Dipavali, Shiv Ratri, Hanuman Jayanti and Janmasthmi are also celebrated very jubilantly.
