Start to unravel the mysteries of India's yogic wisdom at Bhagavad-gita Diorama-Museum. The museum features 11 life-size dioramas, which depict scenes from Gita, the 700-verse Sanskrit scripture that is part of the Hindu epic Mahabharata. The meticulously crafted sculptures were made by Hare Krishna artists in the late 1970s, using India's ancient doll-making techniques and traditional materials such as bamboo, clay, rice straw, and rice husk. Simulations, light shows, music, and video projections complete the magic of this immersive 45-minute walk. A gift shop and a vegetarian restaurant are situated next to the museum.

  • As George Harrison stated after his visit, it's better than Disneyland. The attention to detail in the hand crafted art and multimedia presentations were absolutely awe inspiring. My girlfriend who was barely even familiar with Krisha at the time still talks about it often almost 2 years later. Absolutely worth a visit. Don't forget the gift shop!
  • What an AMAZING experience! Every stop on the tour is a masterpiece. The staff is always pleasant and very knowledge on the subject matter. I couldn't recommend enough. It appeals to any crowd and all ages.
