Good place very closer to Airport with great architecture
ISKCON is a beautiful temple dedicated to "Lord Krishna". This is located near "CODISSIA" hall about 2 Kms from the Coimbatore International airport. It is Neatly maintained by the society. I love the outer architecture of a temple which is totally handicraft work as south India is famous for it's there amazing architect work on temple. Which gives them so traditional and elegant look which attracts eye of the people...

Fascinating and good
THE TEMPLE SOMEHOW DIDNT MEET MY EXPECTATIONS.MAY BE BECAUSE I VISITED IT AFTER SUNSET BUT YES IT IS A GOOD PLACE TO VISIT FOR THE FIRST TIME. THE TEMPLE ARCHITECTURE IS GOOD AND FASCINATING.
A visit is fine
A replica of similar ISKON temples in other cities, though at miniature level. However it is not a place of destination which you may avoid as you are not going to miss anything ,if you skip visiting the place.However if you travelling to CODISSIA, you can visit the temple as it is located near to the location.
ISKCON, is a very good place to visit for mental peace and spiritual understanding of a person's life. Chant Hare Krishna ''MAHA MANTRA" and be happy. Anyone with mental depression can visit the temple at peelemedu anytime u want especially on saturdays and sundays....
