Sri Krishna Balaram Deities and Sri Gaura Nitai Installation

We had a wonderful Krishna Conscious weekend celebrating the grand installation of Sri Krishna Balaram and Sri Gaura Nitai deities in our neighbourhood Hare Krishna temple. Here are some pictures and video of the festival.

Jaladivas Ceremony: The deities were immersed in the water after a yajna.
