|As you enter the Chatikara road coming from Delhi towards Vrindavan, on the left side you see a round structure which at first glance makes you think a gigantic flying saucer has landed there.
Actually, a temple with a blue middle section elevating higher, is the site of the Akshaya patra, where a major development has taken place. Under the guidance of Yomapad das and inspired, organized and financed by Iskcon Bangalore, a mega kitchen has been constructed, which has already reached a distribution of 60,000 plates of prasadam to hungry school children in Braj Mandal. One of the main attractions of the site is a chappati machine which makes 10,000 chappatis in one hour. With admirable administration and elegant presentation, we were shown the exhibit of future services to be performed, including work to restore the entire Yamuna riverfront from Kaliya ghat to Keshi ghat, under the sponsorship of the India Heritage Foundation, also from Bangalore.
An entrance gate to this site is currently under full construction. We hope that the plan to beautify the Yamuna riverfront may become a reality in the near future. That would be the most wonderful gift to all the visitors of Vrindavan, who have suffered watching the state of dilapidation and uncleanliness that has dominated the Yamuna riverfront since its partitioning.
