The Temple was built in 1979, with renovations done in 1987.

We recently received a generous donation to begin building a brand new temple. Please visit our New Temple page for more details and to donate!

Temple Deities

New Talavan’s Temple is presided over by our most merciful, gracious, and beautiful Lordships, Sri Sri Radha-Radhakanta and Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai.

The daily deity worship is performed according to the exacting standards outlined in the Vedic scriptures. This worship of the Lord in His deity form (archa vigraha) is a deep and amazing science that must be experienced to be fully appreciated.

There is a common misconception that this type of worship is polytheistic. Actually, our teachings are more accurately labeled as polymorphic monotheism – there is one supreme God, but he has many different forms and names. The deities of our temple are different aspects of the one supreme God. For example, Sri Sri Radha-Radhakanta are the Lord’s topmost masculine and feminine forms.
