Iskcon Temple in Mumbai is one of the 400 Iskcon temples across the world. ISKCON stands for International Society of Krishna Consciousness. Established in 1978, this temple is also known as the Hare Rama Hare Krishna Temple. This name dates back to the fact that the temple was established under the Hare Krishna Movement founded by his Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

Made of white marble, Iskcon Temple is very spacious and has an inbuilt publishing house, guest house and a restaurant serving Vaishnavite food. The walls of the temple are adorned with beautiful paintings. Aimed to preach the sayings of Bhagwad Gita, this temple has Radha Rasabihariji as its presiding deity.

The best time to visit the Iskcon Temple us during the celebration of Lord Krishna’s birthday, which falls in the month of August or September. Millions of devotees from all over the world visit the temple during Janmashtami. Daily spiritual courses are also available in the temple, a major highlight of which is the robot show demonstrating religious knowledge.

"Temple of Krishna"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Mar 15, 2016
It is temple of Krishna and the temple just awesome with the "craft, design and marble finishing" is beautiful. From the busy and Hectic life of Mumbai the temple gives so much relief. The best time to visit the place is at the time of "evening aarti". At that time the "Krishna Nagarjuna dance" with all devotees is so mind and "Stress free dance" in the temple and must to be experienced by everyone. And other main attraction of the temple is "Govindaraju restaurant" which is apart of the temple which offers vegetarian buffet and the food is so good with Indian and international varieties" and the timings are from 10:00am to evening 4:00pm", and the price is also reasonable.

"So pleasant and clean temple"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Jan 19, 2016
Peace - In ; Bliss - Out

Peacefully Blissful ISKCON!!!

Very neat and clean temple located in Juhu and very easily accessible from all parts of Mumbai. I and my wife along with my 2 children went to this wonderful temple and felt absolutely peaceful within.

The temple complex has all the amenities along with a restaurant and banquet hall where we can do all functions including Marriage, only drawback is parking space is limited.

Must visit for all age groups when in Mumbai. When we sit in silence after doing all the formalities, we will be very peaceful and feeling relaxed, please experience this experience for the experience sake.

"You are fortunate to be here!"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Jul 28, 2015
This temple complex has some good vibration you can not delay. I am talking about Iskcon Juhu in particular.

My experience is based on multiple stay at this temple complex. You should really attend evening Aarti here.

A part from many religious activities, one really touched my heart. A bunch of ladies from every sphere of life, sits together and make beautiful flowers garlands before every puja.
