JKP has established four main ashrams in India, and one ashram in Texas, USA, all of which are running under the guidance of Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj. These ashrams are fully engaged in serving the public both socially and spiritually.

Bhakti Dham is the birthplace of Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj. It is situated in a small village called Managarh which is nestled amidst the lush green farmlands of Pratapgarh district between Ayodhya and Prayag (Allahabad), Uttar Pradesh, India.

Bhakti Dham, Mangarh

In order to benefit those souls desiring God’s love, Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj founded an Ashram in Mangarh in 1966. This once unknown and quiet village has been attracting faithful souls ever since.
Over the years, the ashram has steadily expanded to accommodate thousands of devotees who come to experience the extraordinary devotional atmosphere.

Bhakti Mandir

As you enter Bhakti Dham and travel down the road, Bhakti Mandir appears before you like a mystical divine charm. While reminding future generations of the greatness of this divine place, it will also provide inspiration for devotion and divine knowledge for thousands of years to come.

The Foundation

The foundation stone of Bhakti Mandir was laid on October 26th, 1996, marking the beginning of construction of this all stone, hand-carved temple. Standing 108 feet tall and built with pink sandstone, white marble and black granite, Bhakti Mandir was inaugurated in a grand celebration in November 2005.


Upon entering the temple, the beautiful life sized Deities of Radha Krishna incorporates divine pleasure and attraction of Radha Krishna and forcibly attracts the mind. Delicately carved Dieties of the Ashta Mahasakhis (8 eternal and closest friends of Radha Rani), personally established by Shri Maharaj Ji encircle the main hall. Equally beautiful life sized Deities of Ram and Sita have been established on the first floor.

Bhakti Bhawan (Satsang Hall)

New Sadhana Hall

To cater for the growing devotional enthusiasm, the original satsang hall was replaced by a larger hall. That growth has continued and now an even larger hall has been constructed, called “Bhakti Bhawan”, for the unprecedented numbers of devotees who come to Mangarh Dham. It is used for satsang programs and celebrations of functions and festivals.

Opening Hours for Visitors
