The place is easily located on google map and its just 1 km away from main ECR Road. The place was less crowded and peaceful. The architecture of the temple is good.

A lovely temple tucked inside ECR! The murthis of Krishna, Shubadhra and Balaram are replicas of Puri Jaganatha shrine murthis. Also small mandirs for Kashi Vishwanath, Ganapathy, Budhha, Maa Lakshmi, Hanumanji are also present. The gardens are beautifully maintained and the temple had such a calming envirnment!
