Traditional Hindu temple with blend of Modern outlook!

Visited on a Sunday and it was crowded. But, entry to the temple is controlled well and everyone gets enough time and space to visit the inner sanctum. Mobile phones and cameras are not allowed and there are enough places to deposit them for safe keeping. Prasadams are tasty and are packed nicely. Holidays and Sundays have extended time of visit for devotees. Lot of religious books are available in different languages and prices are quite reasonable.

Best temple to be

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.
