Hare Krishna Thank you for the nice review. This is one of the largest ISKCON temples in the world. The temple which is also a tourist attraction draws a large number of visitors. We suggest that you plan your visit in the early morning hours to avoid the crowd. More

Hare Krishna Thank you for the review. As for the temple architecture - the unique combination of glass and gopuram represents a fusion between majestic traditional styles and bold new aesthetics. The spacious main temple hall has a beautiful gold plated altar, attractive interior designs and ceiling with huge paintings depicting the pastimes of Lord Krishna with His devotees. More

Hare Krishna Thanks for your review. The temple is within walking distance from the Metro Rail (Mahalakshmi station) and the bus stops. All food that is served here is sattvic - pure vegetarian fare, without the use of garlic or onion. It is prasadam - food that is first offered to the Lord. Please visit the temple more often. More

Beautiful structure, Serene amongst the bhajans. The Lord adorns this beautiful temple amidst all the grandeur and fervor of his bhakts. A must visit for those who wish to experience the power of human positivity. Additionally, loads of souvenirs, books, incense sticks and artifacts for the shopaholics and excellent vegetarian food (both budget and high end) for the hungry.

The temple is very well maintained. It's spotlessly clean and is being built in the recent times. Dedicated to Lord Krishna and Radhaji, this temple is a Krishna cult temple. Aarti is being preformed here every morning and evening. Aarti is a lively worship of the deities by the entire devotees group singing bhajans and chanting Krishna mantras.

We went to ISKCON temple couple of times. We have always enjoyed going to this temple on WOC Road however, we fell it's a bit commercialized with lot of shops to buy food stuff, apparel etc. But, that's still okay as it's a requirement of modern society. Place is very clean and once you enter the place of worship, you... More
