Publications International has just produced a 320-page coffee table hardback which includes a picture of the Sri Sri Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork, Utah, and the following caption.
Amazing and Unusual USA“What could seem more out of place than a temple built in the middle of nowhere? A Hare Krishna temple built in this no-man’s land, which happens to be an acknowledged Mormon stronghold. But build it, the Krishnas certainly did. In fact the group received a great deal of help from their Mormon brethren.The 50 foot tall temple juts up from its elevated plain like a proud citadel should. Exquisitely beautiful, the domed sanctuary is modelled after New Kusum Sarovar, a famous palace in India.More than 40,000 visitors tour the temple annually. Hot vegetarian meals are fed to those who hunger physically as well as spiritually, and gifts, books, and apparel are sold as souvenirs. Such is the peaceful coexistence of faiths.” — Jeff Bahr, compiler.
