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.

He is said to be a direct avatar of Lord Krishna along with the 6 Goswamis of Vrindavan. The Mahaprabhu was the seed for a massive Bhakti movement in India that became very popular. Sri Chaitanya had many followers to spread the Krishna Conciousness philosophies. His followers included many to form the Vaishnava clan. This also included a fantastic theologian, Bhaktivinoda Thakur, who brought this clan in front of the modern audience. His son, Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Goswami took forward the legacy perfectly to spread the consciousness in the west also. He is the spiritual prophet of the Srila Mahapada School of the Bhakti Movement.

ISKCON Temple, Ahmedabad Reviews
Recently they have constructed a new guest house. The guest house is very nice labelled and the rooms are very clean and beautiful. We stayed there for 3 days and we had a good stay. There is also a restaurant on the ground floor which gives good food at reasonable prices. Parking is limited you confirm before taking your vehicle. Location is spot on right at the junction of Sarkhej Gandhinagar Highway and it's got good hotels around.
Peaceful Place :) Pray To God and god bless you. You can also purchase books and locket's in Temple Peaceful You will feel there and there garden also in backside kids have fun there 😄 because they like to run. Sorry I didn't give you my best review 😅
Nice place. So peaceful, beside the sea, the breeze and chanting God's name.... Is Awesome! Heavenly!
Beautiful temple with brilliant idols of Lord Krishna, Radha, Rukmini and others. The life of Kirshna on either walls welcomes you. Facilities for the devotees in the temple are good. One can spend time here listening to the bhajans and songs by the devotees. The park behind the temple is ideal for meditation.
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.
