Vintage Mayapur
20 November 2009

Here’s a few photos from the Bhaktivedanta Archives of Mayapur circa 1972-1980.  It serves to remind us that Mayapur has been a continuous development and will continue to be so. Just as rice paddies were turned in to parks and fountains, now the parks and fountains are making way for something new–the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium.

Here’s how it all began:
