“Pathetic”
Reviewed 27 June 2012

They are too commercialized- money making authorities. I do not like to go to Iskon. They cheat people. They have so much of money but the temple authorities shoe off the beggars and small kids who come to them asking for food. They shoe them off stating they are not supposed to stand informt of the temple. They are bothered about the show of the temple- it should not get 'polluted' by poor beggers. I hate their concept of preaching - when they themselves can not respect the lower/lowest segment of teh society.

“Calm, Serene, Heavenly !”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

Hare Ram Hare Ram Ram Ram Hare Hare, Hare Krishina Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare is what you recite each time you step on each of 108 granite steps that lead to the main ISCKON temple. So you recite it 108 times before you reach the main temple. The temple is well maintained and organized keeping in mind heavy inflow of tourists. They do have a VIP darshan option in case anyone wants to bypass long queue for Darshan, We we lucky enough to have 7-8 temple visitors ahead of us for Darshan.

There is a in-house canteen which serves pre-cooked ready mouthwatering Snacks at a very very genuine price. We tried lemon rice and liked it very much!

Heavenly place to visit :)

A place for Lord Krishna follower to attain spiritual enlightenment. Besides this availability of divine literature, sense of service among volunteers, evening cultural performances & excellent architecture are highlights of this place. A must visit!
