Obscura Society LA: Private Tour of the Bhagavad-Gita Museum

Join Obscura Society LA and the animatronic Hindu gods as we explore the Bhagavad-Gita Museum and the Hare Krishna community in Culver City.

The New Dwaraka Hare Krishna community and temple is located in the heart of Culver City. Within the community, there's a temple, apartment buildings, a vegetarian restaurant, and a delightfully awesome museum.

The Bhagavad-Gita Museum was opened to the public in 1977 as part of the larger Hare Krishna community/facility in Culver City. The museum is meant to educate, inspire, and give visitors a better understanding of the Bhagavad-Gita, the Indian literary classic that remains sacred to over six million people.

Eleven amazing dioramas and numerous animatronic gods lead visitors through the story. In each diorama, talking clay robots give their unique perspective on the Bhagavad-Gita. The story concludes in the final diorama, which is filled with dancing, pipe playing, and beautiful chanting.  All in all, the entire guided tour takes about 45 minutes to walk through.

Join Obscura Society LA as we are given an exclusive tour of the museum, facility, and temple. Afterwards, everyone is invited to a giant vegetarian feast and a chance to participate in a Hare Krishna temple service. Let's all become a Hare Krishna for the day!
