About Gorakhnath Temple

The Geeta Vatika is a 5.2 acres temple-complex near the Asuran chowk of Gorakhpur, built by religious writer Hanuman Prasad Poddar. The temple houses aesthetically carved statues and idols off Radha and Krishna and ensures that their lores echo throughout the day at the temple under a dedicated canopy. How pleasing to the ears is the sound of slow chant and tales of the divine world! Sanctums of Shiva Parvati and Ram Darbar are on either side of the complex. Visitors praise the cleanliness and green ambiance of the place. The temple is constructed as a raised platform above the ‘Pravacchan Hall’ (disclosure hall) and as you descend down the temple, you will see a small hall in which devotes sing ‘sankirtan’ continuously for 24 hours. Ahead of this hall, is a ‘Natyashala’ or play room where skits about the life of Radha and Krishna are performed on certain days. This attracts a huge crowd and is both educating and recreational. To the north of this complex is ‘Samadhi-sthal’ of Shri Hanuman Prasad and also a small temple of Radha Baba who was a great devotee of Radha. Also, on the south are sanctums of Ram Sita, Goddess Durga and Manmath Sundari. So we see that there is not a single inch of this complex untouched by a mystical charm which is a good thing, for its so pleasing to the eyes you would want to come here again!
