Awesome location and must visit everyone

As I went to Rajahmundry to meet my friend, he took me to the ISKCON temple which is built by the ISKCON foundation as same as the ISKCON temple in Bangalore near Godavari banks which is known as Gauthami Ghat. The temple is situated near Kotipalli bus stand, the temple complex is having two floors, the ground floor will be having idols of various hindu gods, and the first floor is for prayers. The garden and ambience will relieve you from tension, apart from Krishna idol, there is also a Balaji idol. Awesome location and must visit everyone.

Mindblowing and nice arrangements in the temple

Rajahmundry Iskcon Temple is very nice, every one must try to see this temple. It is very near to the road and rail ways. This temple is very good in maintenance and devotees visit daily evening to temple and make pooja. After completion of darshan we can enjoy a lot because so many arrangements like parks and hotels are beside the temple. Most beautiful thing is famous Godavari River touches this temple back side.

Decorated temple, must visit

Iskcon temple is a very well known temple. It is located in many other places. The cost to travel to Rajahmundry is very less from my place. The speciality of this temple is it is the temple of lord Radha Krishna. The god and the goddess are decorated in different styles everyday. I have seen the dashavatara of lord Vishnu and the matters explained in epic Bhagavad gita. My advice to the visitors is to must visit the temple it makes your day and the lord will fulfill all your wishes if you wish wholeheartedly. There is nothing much needed to carry. It is restricted to take pictures of the god and should keep phone in silent mode.
