Hare Krishna!

I wanted to know about Vaishnava clothing and from where to purchase it in Gurgaon, India? Are there any specific colours that one can wear: white, yellow, etc.?

Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


Vaishnav clothing for prabhus is - dhoti kurta, kurta pajama, preferably white, though people wear coloured kurta, which is ok. Grihastas should wear white, brahmacari and sanyasi saffron. Brahmacari means one who is qualified as a brahmacari as per temple rules and has got saffron, not someone who is merely unmarried. 

For matajis, sarees, gopi dress is vaishnav clothing. I am sure sarees are available everywhere.

In Gurgaon, I am sure you would not face any issues in finding a shop for the above.

Hare Krishna Mataji,


Thanks for your response! Unfortunately, I am unable to find a shop that deals with only this type of clothing. Does Iskcon have any such physical store or online store? 


Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


The easiest thing to do would be to go to the nearest ISKCON temple and check out. I dont know how big is the Gurgaon centre now. When I visited few years ago, it was a very small set up, not even a proper temple. I believe some development has happened after that. 

There is a big temple in East of Kailash. I think that one has a shop inside. You may find there. Else, you can ask the devotees in either of the temples where to buy. I wouldnt know Delhi shopping places.

Yes, forgot to mention. Part of vaishnav dress is tilak. Please buy gopi chandan when you visit the temple next and learn to apply gopi chandan also. That will complete the vaishnav dress.
