It's a small offshoot of Hinduism, unlike any other branch you may have seen or read about. The celebrations and the temple gatherings, have a spiritually uplifting atmosphere. Very nice to watch and see. Often the food at the end is delicious. People think its free, but this place runs on donations only. Then - why be only a taker?... More

You and I are welcomed with open hearts and minds by the full time devotees of Krishna consciousness at their auspicious temple. Feasting chanting singing and dancing for the pleasures of their lordships are encouraged.

This place just makes me feel good when I eat here. The food is always very good and all vegetarian. I would say the Naam could learn a thing or two from the way ISKON prepares food. My only criticism would be that the staff, who are always nice, need to be better organized. I go back regularly

I first went to the Hare Krishna Temple in Burnaby about 6 weeks ago. I attended a feast on the Sunday evening in the temple which was quite popular - lots of people attending. You don't need to be a follower of Hare Krishna to attend you just need to be hungry..haha. The food was so good I came back... More

A very devout place but needs some work. There needs to be a better management of the place & the temple folks need to either ask for more help or better coordinate what they've got.

This ISKCON temple in particular has taken my heart. The presiding deities, Radha Madan Mohan, are very merciful. The lunch buffet is one of the best in Burnaby, with different dishes prepared everyday. I would recommend a visit for anyone who is in the area, you will want to visit again and again. Sunday night is the best time to... More

Nice gardens, very peaceful and calm. Inside of the temple is very serene and you can meditate in there.

A little known fact, this place employs one of the finest vegetarian chefs to grace the lower mainland. When you are in the area, be sure to stop in for the best VEGGIE BURGER IN VANCOUVER. BTW, there is a nice temple here, as well...
