The historic castle now houses a spiritual community. The new residents have thoroughly restored the castle and turned it into a true spiritual oasis where you can explore the colourful culture of Indian traditions. The castle has now become one of the most important attractions of the Ardennes and is open to visitors every day.

Bhakti Yoga Living

The community of Radhadesh lives a simple and prayerful life, following the standards to our best of the Vedic Philosophy, where yoga originates. 


Here, the tradition of Bhakti Yoga is followed, which means loving devotion to god and all his children. 

There is a temple at the heart of the Chateau, where we sing and worship the form of the Lord Krishna and Radha in the tradition of Hindu Vaisnava standards.
