Krishna's Lotus Temple

Look very interesting, and would have liked to take the tour, but they would not allow my service dog to accompany me. Apparently since the are a church they do not have to follow ADA guidelines.

What beautiful architecture! And so very unexpected in the rural area in which it is found.

Upon finishing our self-guided tour of the second floor (the temple/worship part), a woman asked if we were traveling very far. We answered, "Yes." She then explained that the temple had a serious "pigeon problem," and, given that they do not harm animals (or eat them), she asked us if we could take the most recently captured pigeons over 100 miles from the temple before releasing them (If you release them any nearer than that, they "home" fly back to the temple).

We agreed, and spent a memorable two hours driving with a box of pigeons, and all of the sounds that they make, before releasing them 140 miles south of the temple.

Very nice people. They had an organic vegetarian buffet. Fantastic Indian food, very well priced. They also have llamas with babies out back. Fun stop!

Best $5 all-you-can-eat organic vegetarian Indian buffet! Vegetables are from their farm. Playground for kids with slides and swings! Great family stop! Call ahead they have food festivals, free hatha yoga, etc.

Interesting design details abound on Krishna's Lotus Temple.

Standing isolated in a mostly treeless field in Utah, it has been riveting eyeballs for years.
