As a project of ISKCON Youth Services, Ashraya has been designed to cater to the young and the inquisitive, who need to know more about themselves and the world we live in, without being forced into religious rituals or disciplines that peculate their freedom! At the same time out of their own volition they tend to accept the rich tradition of Vedic culture and education and delve deep into crafting a life that is smart, spiritual and full of gaiety!. Structured training programs for the youth are imparted envisioning a society of dynamic confident young men who are ready to lead with grace and depth . Excursions, social responsibilities and other extra-curricular activities keep the fun quotient intact. What to speak of the delectable cuisine for the palate, the body and the soul – Simply out of this world!
Ashraya promises to offer a nourishing blend of lifestyle management skills and character building while, at the same time providing a strong spiritual foundation to students’ academic & professional pursuits, enabling them to metamorphose into beacons for the future generations.

ISKCON Coimbatore has lent a helping hand to the needy people during the COVID crisis. Over 800 food packets were prepared and delivered every day across the length and breadth of the city. Plans are underway to ramp up the supply of food packets as well as to increase the penetration among the needy.
H.H. Bhakti Vinoda Swami has been steadfast in the practical execution of the mood and mission of our Founder Acharya Srila Prabhupada. We also solicit the generosity of volunteers who are willing to be a part of this extremely fulfilling service!
Still in its nascent stages the cattle farm within the premises of ISKCON Coimbatore is certainly a star attraction. The free-range Desi cows graze on natural grass especially cultivated for them. These cows are pasture-fed and raised in harmony with nature without the administration of any antibiotics or steroids. The pure delicious milk that they yield is used for making butter, ghee, yogurt and other milk -based preparations in the temple.
