Deenabandhu Devasthanam

Consecrated in 1978, Deenabandhu Devasthanam is highly revered shrine dedicated to Lord Krishna at Indiranagar in Bangalore.

Krishna has been depicted as dancing on the seven hooded serpent Kaliya (Kaliya Mardana), whose seven hoods denotes Kama, Krodha, Lobha, Moha, Mada, Matsarya and Ahankara.

The temple reflects a combination of North and South Indian architecture adorned with 5 gopurams representing the 5 Mahayagnas. The crown of the temple describes the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu, flanked by Garuda and Hanuman on both sides.

The entrance is in the form of a flame of fire. The belief is that while entering the temple, one has to drop the ego in the flame of fire and; purify, and then seek the blessings and grace of Krishna with pure devotion.
