Iskcon Temple - Review

It is perhaps one of the best places to get acquainted with the city’s culture and folks. Owning the reputation of being the first temple in the ISKCON legacy, the temple has been a constant intrigue for devotees and spirituals across the globe. Commonly known as Sri Radha Govind Temple, it was built in 1972 and is solely dedicated to Lord Krishna and his consort Radha. As you enter the temple you come across its beautiful architecture and designs accompanied by carved wooden altar. Historians and those who are interested in mythology will surely love it here! In the mornings after the prayers and chants, the priests tend to recite the story of the deities to the followers which you must definitely witness. There are many restaurants around to eat as well.

  • This is where i find heaven. The place is so calm and the aartis are a treat to the eyes. 😍 I just love this place. And the best time to visit here is during the evening. I personally love to go there at that time of the day. 😇

  • Everything is great except the agarbatties. My most favourite 'Vrindavan Flowers', sometimes its original and sometimes its only wood dust. No control over quality. .... only money making.

  • The temple makes u go to the era of Krishna with decorations and the mighty god makes the temple a perfect get together with it. The people of the temple is also very frank Infact the people who love to take photographs are not ill treated there ...... After visiting temple one can go to the confectionery .

  • Iskon Temple everywhere is so peaceful that you can simply go and sit for hours. The Krishna-Radha idol is mesmerizing and smile on their face will drive you away from all your stress.Iskcon also has the facility of daily morning breakfast from 8-8:30 AM at a nominal cost of Rs 30/head.
