About Temple


Sri 1008 Sri Suguneendra Theertha Swamiji of Udupi Sri Puthige Matha established the Shri Krishna Vrundavana in December 2002. Shri Krishna Vrundavana is affiliated to Sujnana Religious & Charitable Foundation (SRCF. Until Jan 2009, the organization conducted various events at different Hindu temples including the Dwarkadish temple, Parlin. In Jan 2009 Krishna Vrundavana found its new permanent location at 215 May Street, Edison, NJ. 


The permanent location is on a sprawling 3.5 acres land in South Edison with a built up area of around 15000 square feet. The temple premises include a puja hall, prasaada hall, and living quarters for the priests. It also has a multi-purpose community hall with occupancy of about 280 people.

The presiding deity in the Vrundavana is Udipi Sri Krishna. In line with Hari sarvottamatva-Vayu jeevottamathva, the Vrundavana worships Mukhyapraana, a deity in the form of Sri Hanuman. In this kali yuga millions of devotees continues to get the blessings of the kalpataru Sri Raghavendra swamy whose mruthika brindavana is kept and worshiped here. Daily puja is offered (thrice) to the above deities in the udipi sampradaya with recital of Veda mantras followed by annadhana (twice a day).


Vrundavana will benefit numerous communities, and their future generations by spreading the message of Lord Sri Krishna and strengthening the customs and traditions of our great culture in this part of the world.

  • To the younger generations it provides an opportunity to experience our rich cultural, traditional and religious roots.
  • To the thirsty seeking enlightenment and inner meaning of life the Vrundavana provides the opportunities to learn from our scriptures.

To the far and away seeking to perform rituals and sevas the Vrundavana offers services of its learned priests who have undergone formal training in Udipi.


Experience the vibrations as you enter the sanctorum, and observe the puja to Lord Shri Krishna and Shri Guru Raghavendra. Partake in the prasada that is served every single day during the afternoon and evenings. Or, just come and sit in the main hall and notice your thoughts effortlessly fixated on the Lord.

While the temple continues to serve the thousands, there is also an effort underway to enhance the innermost shrine that houses the main deity, Lord Shri Krishna. A Garbha Gudi (inner shrine) is planned for installation.
Shri Krishna Vrundavana was made possible by the grace of Lord Sri Krishna who has recognized the countless hours of hard work put in by the volunteer force. The dedication and hard work of the volunteer groups has continued and will go even further over the months/years.
