I came here on Sunday after visiting Pewabic Pottery. And it is interesting, that's for sure! The exterior of the house is quite nice, but it's the inside that's the gem! There were many Indian children playing outside while inside, there was a dance going on with men and women on separate sides. Immediately upon arriving inside the house, I... More

I went with a group of friends to tour the Fisher Mansion in Detroit. Many people are unaware that there are canals off the Detroit River and the Fisher Mansion which was built in the twenties is located there. It has a long and interesting history which includes now being owned by the Hare Krishna. On Sundays the mansion is... More

It was very hard to find it and when we arrived there it was closed for visit. We did not know that it is open only on Sundays. What a pity to see such a beautiful building deteriorating and falling in pieces! We were offered free food by the temple but we came there for art and history. We peeked... More

I have been going to the Fisher Mansion since the Krishna's have operated it in the mid 1970's and never grow tired of the architecture!! It is a beautiful home built in the early 20's and really interesting grounds. Call ahead for tours and if you are around on a Sunday, don't miss the fabulous vegetarian feast that is served...

First off the picture posted here is not the Fisher Mansion on Lennox Avenue. I am pretty sure this is the Ford Mansion. The Fisher Mansion has a great story behind it, and it is totally worth going on the tour. Just call them a head of time and you go. $5.00 donation. The Hare Krishna's call this home in... More

The Fisher mansion in northeast Detroit was built by the heir to "Body by Fisher" in the late 1920's, supposedly inspired by Hearst Castle in California. For the past 20-something years, it has been a cultural center for the Hare Krishnas. Tours are available at the modest price of $6, and I highly recommend one. The house itself has superb... More

Get it straight, even though this IS the Fisher Mansion it's now a center for the Hare Krishnas. Believe it or not, this is the same mansion that hosted Elvis, Marilyn Monroe and many, many huge stars of that day (50s/60s). At some point, the property was given to the Hare Krishnas (Ford heir? 70s?) and now serves as a... More

The Hari Krishnas live in the mansion and they offer some really great yoga classes and some very interesting dinners and lectures. Peaceful and worth it... Krishas are welcoming to all.

The Fisher Mansion is very beautiful. It is amazing, not only for it's architecture and history, but also it's present status as the home of the Hare Krishna Cultural Center. The art is incredible and the food was great. I would recommend it to everyone visiting Detroit.
