General Information

We have two temples: One located in Salt Lake City, Utah, and the other located in Spanish Fork, Utah. We are known for our beautiful temples, which are inspired by Rajasthani architecture from India. The Spanish Fork Krishna’s Lotus Temple was completed in 1998. The Salt Lake City temple is getting a new, beautiful building, and will be completed some time in 2019.

Join us in celebrating the divine through chanting, as we leave the material world behind. Salt Lake City love feasts begin at 7pm every Saturday. Spanish Fork love feasts begin at 5pm every Sunday.


From the wildness of Holi (Festival of Colors), to the serenity of Diwali (Festival of Lights) in October, we are famous for our festivals. There are seven per year. Put them on your calendar now! View our calendar here.


About Krishna Consciousness


Our main tools are spiritual practices, like chanting the Hare Krishna mantra, eating vegetarian prasadam, and reading the Bhagavad-Gita (“Song of God”). We do these things regularly to achieve personal transformation.


And of course, learn about Krishna, revered in India for thousands of years as the All-Attractive Lord of Lords and the Source of All Creation. Understand how and why we worship him, and about our lineage of spiritual teachers that stretches back to Krishna himself.

Growing a Family

We hold new member meetings on the first Saturday of every month from 4-5pm at the Salt Lake City temple. Please confirm your spot by calling Govinda Bhakta at (385) 955-9526.
