About Iskcon Temple, Ahmedabad
The International Society for Krishna conciousness was founded by his divine grace Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada in 1966. It is of the Gaudiyavaishnava tradition.

ISKCON Temple, Ahmedabad Reviews
In past used to be a heavenly place for chanting Krishna's name along with devotees.So peaceful and orderly managed with least human interference. Presently the inner decorum is inclined towards artificiality and the outer is a fully developed food zone. Appearance slowly this might take over the prominance as a fast food joint. So pray authorities revert to the original institution of a gods place and encourage more numbers of devotees. Hare Krishna.
Amazing environment inside the temple. Peaceful and relaxing. Worth a visit. It feels as if all the positive vibes are filled in inside
A very good ISKCON Temple. A place where you will get peace of mind. Nicely maintained. In true sense a devotional place.
Peaceful iskcon temple in the middle of a crowded road. You can spend some time quiet time and also shop, eat and relax inside the premises.
Temple is good and peacefull but there canteen food is not a worth penny its just irritating food and not a single taste in it. They should give a good parking place as sometimes police comes and take photos because seasonall festivals crowd comes.
