Krishna's Kitchen

Antony Brennan

If the Deity room is the heart of the temple then the kitchen must be one of the major organs. The kitchen is at the center of many of the activities undertaken at any of Krishna’s temples. Here are produced the delicious foods offered to the Deities at each meal and which are distributed amongst the devotees and guests as the mercy or prasadam of Lord Krishna.

Krishna’s kitchen caters for the festivals and other events held throughout the year such as Janmasthami and Gaura Purnima, as well as the appearance and disappearance days of the Acharyas. There are home programs, retreats and anniversaries which are all catered for out of the temple kitchen. It is said that in all of India the biggest kitchen is within the compound of the world famous Jagannatha temple in Puri.
