• Weddings, homas, yajnas

• Inviting and working with young international travellers

and volunteers

So the Berlin temple will be one of

the most important centers in Europe, and I hope that in the future we will

be able to train many

Germans who are very intelligent personalities in the European countries.

Srila Prabhupada, September 14, 1968

a Temple in ​Berlin Matters

city with a population of nearly 4 million

a unique history and cultural attractions

lifestyle offers a vast potential
