"Best temple to be"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Mar 30, 2016
This temple is worth visiting and it is located in the Bangalore city very near to the museum and zoo. I visited this temple during this month and this is best temple to visit in summer as it is cool above hill through inside the temple as the finishing is made of marble in the temple. This temple is maintained very neatly by the society, the place is very peaceful and we can join yoga that happens on Saturday with 300 fee. The temple has own canteen with international standards of veg varieties, after darshan book stall will also be available in the temple itself which offers books, cd's of lord Krishna. So definitely visit this temple when visited to Bangalore and prasadam here served is so tasty.

"Great place for a half day visit"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jan 27, 2016
I have visited the Iskcon temple many times. It's a good place to visit. The place is overcrowded but the authorities manage it well. You can complete the darshan in about half an hour. There is place to sit in the main temple where you can listen to bhajans and see the aarti. They have a big cafeteria where you get almost all types of food starting from eggless cakes to sweets, laddus etc. All this is prasad already offered to the God. There is also various collectible items for sale like the incense sticks, garments, calendar, books in various languages etc. Overall an important sightseeing spot in Bangalore.
