Beautiful & calming.

Not our first visit, but always a pleasure to visit. Architecture, decoration, wood carving-work, stone-work (esp. balustrade going to upper floor) is exquisite.

Crowded, loud and very colourful

All walls are adorned with exquisite paintings of Lord Krishna and his life. Lord Krishna is the most photogenic of all gods, maybe after Lord Ganesha. The artists have not let down him down and have captured his charismatic tales and flamboyant life with Gopis and Radha. The temple resplendent, the costumes of the deities expensive and well embellished, the temple also indulged in architectural melodrama with marble, stairs and intricate carving and is crowded.Loud chanting made the air electrified.

Adorable temple

Though the ISKCON has their temples in all famous cities. But being in Krishna nagari gives this ISKCON an extra edge. The madness can be felt at the shore. Evening aarti is quite adorable here. You can find the devotees from overseas dancing on Hare Rama Hare Krishna songs. A mesmerized experience of Krishna Bhakti one can feel here. Here you are quite safe no one will thug you at least. Donation, library and other stuffs is up to you whether you want to buy or not. The very beautiful statue of Lord Krishna with Radha g really give you a pure devotional experience.

Beautiful temple with nice designs

The darshans of lord Krishna leaves one with utter surprise as on seeing their beauty.There is a continuous kirtan going on in the temple which never let you feel bored.The temple premises have Srila Prabhupada quarter which include the articles being used by him.The premises also include BBT shop which sells books and other paraphernalia required for our daily use and which can be given as gifts.
