Concept Of Yugal Kunj
The concept of Yugal Kunj is quite unique. It emphasizes religion in a new and modern way while firmly holding on to the values of Hinduism. The building itself is a modern take on a traditional temple. The elegant lobby with its jeweled tone décor leads to a grand Prayer Hall that houses the main shrine for the beautiful deities of Radha Krishna and Sita-Ram. The deities are handcrafted in pure white marble and look resplendent in glamorous outfits and jewels. The beauty and divinity of the deities practically help devotees with meditation and devotion to God.
The building is surrounded by lush greenery that truly gives one the feel of a “Kunj” (flowery bower) but sits in the middle of Duluth, making it easily accessible from various locations within the city. Once you enter the grounds, the feeling is like no other. It is a place filled with trees and flowers that mesmerize you and will compel you to spend a little more time.
This center focuses very strongly on the youth.Through its various activities and services Yugal Kunj provide a positive, safe and healthy place for the youth to come together on common ground that centers on Hinduism and Hindu culture.
Gurukul is the educational wing of Yugal Kunj. This exciting initiative will take children and teens step by step through the various phases of our culture, helping them develop long lasting faith and understanding of the Hindu religion. Beautiful classrooms provide an optimal learning environment. and dedicated teachers make learning an enjoyable experience for all children.
