    Beautiful serene temple amidst the city, easily accessible by bmtc bus, and Metro . Ample parking space for your own vehicle also. Morning Aarti at 7.30 am is bliss and one must attend that .

    Hare Krishna Bless us
    ISKCON Bangalore A wonderful dravidian architecture with a fusion of the western architecture which has also used glass for all the 4 sides of the Temple. This place gives you the vibrant feeling that I am bowing to the lotus 🪷 feet and I am surrendering myself. The wonderful place is spread over which will start from the gate, then the Kalyani which is so beautiful like the Pushkarani at the Tirupati. We then have 108 footstep station in which we can chant and the cleansing of mind starts with the Hare Krishna Chanting. The first Darshana was of Lord Prahlada Narasimha Swami who protected his devotee Prahlada. The man-lion avatar of Lord Vishnu, who rescues Prahlada by slaying his father. The Second Darshan was of Lord Sri Srinivasa Govinda the Lord Venkateshwara is also know as Srinivasa. From there we went to the main temple which is the art of lotus 🪷 in the light as well the place was full of lord Krishna’s life special movement’s There was a group of people performing the Sri Krishna sankirtana, which cleanses the heart of all the dust accumulated and extinguishes the fire of conditional life. After the Darshan of Lord Brotherhood Sri Krishna BalaRama and the love ❤️ of life Sri Radha Krishna Chandra was full filling the heart ♥️. Had all the time for my communication with the Lord Radha Krishna. The feeling was getting blessed.
    Hare Krishna! Thank you for sharing your beautiful and heartfelt experience at ISKCON Bangalore. We are delighted to hear that you found the temple’s Dravidian and Western architectural fusion captivating and that your visit was spiritually fulfilling. The journey from the entrance through the Kalyani and the 108 footstep station, with the Hare Krishna chanting, sets a wonderful tone for a divine experience. We are glad that you felt the cleansing of the mind and soul during your visit. Your detailed description of the darshans of Lord Prahlada Narasimha Swami, Lord Sri Srinivasa Govinda, and the main temple deities of Sri Krishna Balarama and Sri Radha Krishna Chandra highlights the profound spiritual connection and peace you experienced. The Sri Krishna sankirtana is indeed a powerful way to cleanse the heart and connect with the divine. We are grateful for your kind words and for sharing your journey of devotion and blessings with us. Your feedback and experiences inspire us to continue providing a serene and spiritually uplifting environment for all devotees. Hare Krishna! ISKCON Bangalore Management

    Great temple - Glad to be back to this spot after 15 years
    Came here on Monday night to ISKCON temple as a visit after 15 years. It has a lot of stairs, good if you are able to manage it. However, backpacks and footwear are not allowed and you have to turn those in before proceeding. The crowds were less but were able to see much of it. As far as the food, a mix of Indian and Western food, but completely vegetarian and eggless. I was surprised they had French fries and gobi manchurian. Didn't buy any this time but next time I'll plan to do so. We will be back when our travels take us there, but in the daytime.
    Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We're glad to hear you revisited ISKCON Bangalore after 15 years and found the visit enjoyable despite the stairs and restrictions on backpacks and footwear. We strive to offer a variety of vegetarian and eggless food options to cater to diverse tastes, and we're happy you noticed the mix of Indian and Western dishes. We look forward to welcoming you back during your next visit in the daytime. Hare Krishna!

    It's a beautiful temple. A bit disorganised maybe because it's going through some renovation/expansion works. There is no queue for buying sweets and snacks. People are all over and they tend to jump the queue 😅. In the main there is place you can sit meditate and sing. Strictly no pictures
    Thank you for your feedback. We're glad you find the temple beautiful. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the disorganization during our renovation and expansion works. Your comments regarding the queue management for sweets and snacks are noted, and we will work on improving this aspect. The main temple area is indeed a wonderful place for meditation and singing, and we appreciate your understanding of our no-picture policy to maintain the sanctity of the space. Hare Krishna!

    ISKON Bangalore guest house: good but can be made great
    Amazing location. You can walk peacefully to mangal arati!!! The rooms are pricey for non-members but I would have put that money in the hundi anyway. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are now being served for guests at a very nominal cost. It is unlimited but I found it to be too salty, spicy (too much chillies) and too many fried foods. May be management can be a leader in the industry and make it healthy.

    Its a really cool place, must see
    This temple is truly immense, radiating an abundance of positive energy. To reach the main temple, you ascend a series of stairs, passing through chanting steps, a novel concept that was new to me. The entire complex is immaculately maintained, reflecting the standards typical of Iskcon temples. Following your visit to the temple, you can explore the food court and indulge in a variety of delicious dishes. Additionally, there's a restaurant conveniently located nearby. While bags aren't permitted inside, free lockers are available for storage. This is undoubtedly a must-visit destination... Jai Shree Krishna!

    Great experience
    Pay the fast track 400 (indian rupees for up to 6 people) to skip all the lines. It's worth it. Got to experience the whole ceremony at the front row. Very nice. You have to leave your shoes at the bottom of the temple.

Disappointing. Example of commercialization of spiritual places. Spend more time walking, climbing stairs, passing through souvenir shops and stalls selling sweets in the name of prasad. One thing you will not find is peace of mind.
