The Temple

New Mayapur was established in 1975 by Sri Srila A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder of ISKCON. It is home to the first Krishna-Balarama deities ever installed in the Western world.

Ahimsa Farm

Visit our cruelty-free farm! Our cows and goats are cared for with love all throughout their lives, until their natural death. Ahimsa, or non-violence, is an essential part of Vedic culture.

Our Events

Although we are open all week, our Open House Sundays are especially designed to give you a first taste of what New Mayapur has to offer! For a deeper experience, stay over for a Discovery Week-End or a Monk Week.


What better way to travel, learn about different cultures, meet exciting new people and forge friendships than volunteering?

How to Come

New Mayapur is situated in a haven of peace, amongst the forests and fields of Indre, in the center of France. As such, it can be sometimes a little hard to reach, especially when coming from abroad. Find out how to come right here.

Stay Over

Experience New Mayapur first-hand by booking a room in our fully furnished, comfortable guesthouse. We have rooms for singles, families, travellers and everything in between. All our rooms are available all year round.
