“tample or a shoping mall.....”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

while entering into the temple.... i m very spiritual.... its grand.... but not as spiritual as iskcon in mathura...... but after leaving the main temple just a few steps down.... it start looking like a mall.... within moments spirituality goes away....
pandit start looking like workers of large commercially made temple ....
if u have faith in god than don't even think to visit it ... i suspect u will lose the faith....

“A wonderful experience”
Reviewed 14 July 2012

This sprawling temple to dedicated to Radha and Krishna is well worth visiting. Like most ISKCON temples, it is exceptionally well maintained. A very peaceful spiritual experience. I liked it so much on the guided tour that I came back by myself another day. Souvenir shop and food court are there.

“Peaceful place”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

It is very good place; however it gives a feeling that we went to market than to temple. Good thing is about the cleanliness of the temple premises.

“Must visit place in bangalore”
Reviewed 11 July 2012

The temple also has a Multi-Vision-Theatre(MVT) and an Open Air Theatre(OAT). At MVT, a 3-screen theatre, a short movie of Indian wisdom and Heriage runs and also the latest animation movie 'Hey Krishna' which has won International Awards before the release is run. The temple also has a pond called Kalyani used during various festivals.

One can see many dedicated members of this spiritual society always immersed in the melodious chanting of Hare Krishna mantra. These dedicated devotees have a cleanly shaven head with a mast on head reflecting India's Vedic lifestyle. The devotees here refrain from smoking, meat-eating, alcohol,illicit relationships gambling etc...
