"Great place for a half day visit" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks 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 2 months ago
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 2 months ago
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.

"Beautiful temple"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Oct 11, 2015
This is a nice and well-maintained temple. Located on the Hare Krishna hill, the architecture is marvelous. There is a temple on each step of the hill and you have to cross all the three till you reach the main temple on the hill top. It's over crowded all the time but the crowd management is awesome. There is ample parking space for 4 wheelers / 2 wheelers and shoe keeping and lockers for valuables.

The main temple has a very very beautiful idol and has a huge hall with big speakers. The chanting of mantras during aarti is simply awesome. After darshan you can go for some refreshment. There is a cafeteria which serves almost everything from sweets, cakes, samosas etc in the form of prasadams, though a bit expensive, it's very well-prepared.

A must visit to one of the main attractions in Bangalore.

"Beautiful temple with activities"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Aug 14, 2015
Those people who are spiritual and want to visit any temple in Bangalore the Iskcon temple in Rajajinagar is the best. I attended the student activities and youth activities in the temple. In coming days it will be more beautiful because the birth date of Krishna comes.
