When the Sultan of Oman protected a Sri Krishna temple

Darsait in Islamic Sultanate of Oman is the site of a famous Sri Krishna temple supported by the family headed presently by Shri Kanaksi Khimji of the Khimji Ramdas Group. The Khimjis are citizens of Oman and remain staunch vegetarians and devotees of Shrinathji with roots in Gujarat. Shri Khimji's grandfather came to Oman in 1870 and the family has had close a and mutually respectful relationship with the ruling family.

Regular worship is offered along with chappan bhog for Lord Krishna at the temple and all major festivals are celebrated at the temple which is frequented in thousands by expat Indians working in Muscat. The Sultan's family is as committed to Islam as it is known for its religious tolerance to all subjects. 

Jayant Vyas, a priest at the Krishna Temple, Muscat, has been quoted in media reports saying that “During the Babri Masjid riots in India, the Sultan personally ordered his guard to protect the (Shri Krishna) temple. He told us not to fear any attacks and to continue with our pujas.”

May Shri Krishna bless the Sultan and his family for his love for all his subjects
