Temple of Understanding


The Hare Krishna temple, known as the Sri Sri Radhanath Temple of Understanding, is found in the largely Indian area of Chatsworth roughly 20 kilometres south of the city of Durban. It is one of the major tourist attractions when in Durban.

Incredible architecture of the temple comes with marble tiles, gold-tinted windows, brass ornaments, crystal chandeliers and golden statuettes. The other reason is the excellent vegetarian restaurant at the temple. The Hare Krishna Temple was designed in the shape of a Lotus plant and built in 1969. It is regarded as the largest Hare Krishna temple in Africa, and it makes a fascinating visit, not least because of the beautiful gardens, which were added six years after the temple was built.

HORSE RIDING AND RACING

Greyville Race Course

 

Where the Durban July takes place , it is comparable to Britain’s Royal Ascot - high fashion, exciting horse racing, food, champagne and a lot of people. And you don’t even have to know all that much about horse racing to enjoy the festivities. The race was first held in July 1897 with only seven horses and today it is one of the highlights of the horse racing calendar. Ladies and gents alike come out arrayed in the most incredible designer outfits. Large hats and vibrant colors are the order of the day and once the race is over, most supporters head out to one of many after parties until late at night.
