Definitely one of the more unusual places I’ve seen – a Hindu temple and palace dedicated to Srila Prabhupada – in the mountains of West Virginia? The drive to it was a quest in itself – miles of winding, crumbling road, with few houses along the way. I’ve driven on some pretty bad roads, especially in the Pine Barrens, and I can easily say none come close to this one.
After going down the walkway, the palace is the first building you see. Behind it is a decent sized rose garden.
I was disappointed to learn photography isn’t allowed inside the palace. Of course, this wasn’t mentioned until after I paid for the tour.
