The ISKCON Connecticut Temple has been open in East Hartford for over 40 years. The temple has a small close-knit community, with about 50-60 regular congregation members visiting the centre every Sunday. In 2017, they bought a new building in Glastonbury, a suburb near Hartford, CT, and renovation is underway. When the Deity altar and new commercial kitchen are complete, relocation to Glastonbury will take place.
When COVID struck, the temple community at ISKCON Connecticut, USA, was worried as were most of the organisations worldwide. When the pandemic induced lockdown happened, it forced the members to think of ways to maintain engagement and association with other devotees.
