About Us

Hare Krishna in Amsterdam

Hare Krishna has been a part of Amsterdam since 1970. The first temple was situated in the bijlmer and later in the middle of the Red Light District. From that place we evolved into a bigger place at the Herengracht, then to Keizersgracht and even later to the Hobbemakade. Now we have a place at the Van Hilligaertstraat 17. It has been quite a history and the Hare Krishna people are a well known phenomena by now. Our yearly festival like Ratha Yatra, our appearance on Queensdays & Kingsday plus our weekly singing and dancing through the Kalverstraat have aided to this.
