Diorama-museum of Bhagavad-gita, Los Angeles

4.9
Start to unravel the mysteries of India's yogic wisdom at Diorama-museum of Bhagavad-gita. The museum features 11 life-size dioramas, which depict scenes from Gita, the 700-verse Sanskrit scripture that is part of the Hindu epic Mahabharata. The meticulously crafted sculptures were made by Hare Krishna artists in the late 1970s, using India's ancient doll-making techniques and traditional materials such as bamboo, clay, rice straw, and rice husk. Simulations, light shows, music, and video projections complete the magic of this immersive 45-minute walk. A gift shop and a vegetarian restaurant are situated next to the museum.

  • Very much enjoyed my visit. The self-guided tour allows you to spend as much time as you want. The displays were creative, interesting and high quality. I learned a lot and only wish there was more!
  • I love this place so much! Truly one of my favorite places in LA.
  • My daughter loved the books that the person at the door recommended. She enjoys reading the material to us. Thank you for your kindness.
  • We were awestruck and bewildered by the grandeur and intricacies of each exhibit at the Bhagvad -Gita Diorama museum! An enthralling experience! Would recommend each one to visit L.A specially to see these exhibits! It appears as if the pages of the Bhagvad Gita come to life! I have been to many museums in the past; but this one is definitely going to be my all-time favorite! Its been well maintained too, and constantly refurbished!
  • Such a wonderful place. Every one must visit this place. We can understand how insignifacant we are and how we are all suffering in the material world and by one simple process we can attain the life of eternity
