"Best temple to be" new review

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
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.

A good visit. Nice temple of Lord Krishna. Good books and few good interesting stuffs are sold within. The temple looks really good in the evening time. There is aarti at the evening which is not to be missed if you plan to visit this temple.

It is the best temple I have ever seen in my life. This place has given me a lot of peace. This is very silent place and also a great big infrastructure. This temple looks ever better from inside the Metro.

"Great place for a half day visit"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
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.

"Nice place for the religious, rest might find it crowded and commercialized"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted Dec 17, 2015
This place is closed from 2 to 4 pm; better to plan the trip accordingly. The faithful have ample choices to shop from; idols, Prasad, Radha Krishna paintings and what not. The main Pooja area is beautiful; the idols and their surroundings radiate with the splendor of the electroplated gold. One has the option to perform various kinds of Poojas, for fee of course. It can get pretty crowded on weekends. Therefore visit early on a weekend or on a weekday to avoid the crowd.

"Marvellous temple and well dedicated to other Indian deities"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 5, 2015
ISKCON temple Bangalore is a marvellous temple of Radha-Krishna as well as temples dedicated to other Indian deities. Built on sprawling acre of land, this magnificent temple with its beautiful architecture soothes you even before you enter the temple. The calm and peaceful atmosphere is something to be cherished. There are many temples inside ISKCON and one needs to fully and appropriately dressed to enter.

Inside the Radhe Krishna temple the ceiling and adjoining walls are complete with beautiful paintings depicting Mahabharata, Ramayana and the teachings of Lord Krishna. The idols of the lord adorned with gold and diamond jewellery and the Lords serene smile is indeed a treat to the eyes. One can just sit in the grand hall and find some peace, or listen to the aartis and chants, engage in the celebration of the lord on other days.

ISKCON also boasts of some delicious prasad in the form of khichdi which one can eat at their hearts content. Clicking pictures is prohibited and people are asked to leave their cameras and footwear behind, given a token number by which they can collect it later. ISKCON temple also has exhibition and stores where people can buy religious books, sculptures, artifacts, clothes, memorandum etc. ISKCON also offers clean hygienic sumptuous pure vegetarian food ranging from chats, samosas, dahi puri, sweets of all varieties, aam ras, etc. All in all, one can be assured to return happily with a peaceful mind and Lords name on their lips.
