Check Out Repairs that are Happening in Your Temple!

11:00:00 AM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav)

As many of our devotees know, our beautiful temple is located in a massive heritage building, located in the heart of downtown Toronto!  Our temple, originally built as a Presbyterian Church in 1896, has been the home to many different churches and, since 1976, the home of Toronto's Hare Krishna community!

While we all love and enjoy having such an incredible building as the home to our beloved Deities, the sheer age of the structure means that the upkeep and maintenance of the temple can be very demanding!  Whether it is leaky pipes, crumbly walls, or minor repairs, the ongoing repairs and maintenance of the temple is something which the temple always struggles to stay ahead of.

In an effort to help our community get a sense of the volume, work, and cost of temple repairs and maintenance, the ISKCON Toronto Temple Council (the temple management) regularly publishes the latest repairs that are required, along with a recap of completed projects.  This spreadsheet is published automatically on the Temple Council's website and contains "before and after photos" for all completed projects!  You can always check this page to see the latest (and upcoming) repairs at the temple and also submit requests for things to be fixed if you notice anything around the temple that needs attention!
