First Vedic Temple in Mongolia

Krishna Consciousness is being practiced in Mongolia since 9 years. From the very beginning Mongolians were eager to receive Vedic knowledge and be educated in the Vedic culture.
At the moment the Mongolian congregation has about 25 active devotees, of which three are being initiated. Some devotees went presently to India, Pune, to be further trained and educated.
Recently our first vegetarian restaurant "Govinda" opened right in the center of Ulan Batoor (capital of Mongolia), which is daily being visited by many people.
The only existing temple at the moment in Mongolia is a traditional Mongolian housing, called "ger" (yurta) where we hold our Sunday feast regularly.
