    Serene n charismatic place in city
    Beautiful serene temple amidst the city, easily accessible by bmtc bus, and Metro . Ample parking space for your own vehicle also. Morning Aarti at 7.30 am is bliss and one must attend that .

    Hare Krishna Bless us
    ISKCON Bangalore A wonderful dravidian architecture with a fusion of the western architecture which has also used glass for all the 4 sides of the Temple. This place gives you the vibrant feeling that I am bowing to the lotus 🪷 feet and I am surrendering myself. The wonderful place is spread over which will start from the gate, then the Kalyani which is so beautiful like the Pushkarani at the Tirupati. We then have 108 footstep station in which we can chant and the cleansing of mind starts with the Hare Krishna Chanting. The first Darshana was of Lord Prahlada Narasimha Swami who protected his devotee Prahlada. The man-lion avatar of Lord Vishnu, who rescues Prahlada by slaying his father. The Second Darshan was of Lord Sri Srinivasa Govinda the Lord Venkateshwara is also know as Srinivasa. From there we went to the main temple which is the art of lotus 🪷 in the light as well the place was full of lord Krishna’s life special movement’s There was a group of people performing the Sri Krishna sankirtana, which cleanses the heart of all the dust accumulated and extinguishes the fire of conditional life. After the Darshan of Lord Brotherhood Sri Krishna BalaRama and the love ❤️ of life Sri Radha Krishna Chandra was full filling the heart ♥️. Had all the time for my communication with the Lord Radha Krishna. The feeling was getting blessed.
    Hare Krishna! Thank you for sharing your beautiful and heartfelt experience at ISKCON Bangalore. We are delighted to hear that you found the temple’s Dravidian and Western architectural fusion captivating and that your visit was spiritually fulfilling. The journey from the entrance through the Kalyani and the 108 footstep station, with the Hare Krishna chanting, sets a wonderful tone for a divine experience. We are glad that you felt the cleansing of the mind and soul during your visit. Your detailed description of the darshans of Lord Prahlada Narasimha Swami, Lord Sri Srinivasa Govinda, and the main temple deities of Sri Krishna Balarama and Sri Radha Krishna Chandra highlights the profound spiritual connection and peace you experienced. The Sri Krishna sankirtana is indeed a powerful way to cleanse the heart and connect with the divine. We are grateful for your kind words and for sharing your journey of devotion and blessings with us. Your feedback and experiences inspire us to continue providing a serene and spiritually uplifting environment for all devotees. Hare Krishna! ISKCON Bangalore Management

    Great temple - Glad to be back to this spot after 15 years
    Came here on Monday night to ISKCON temple as a visit after 15 years. It has a lot of stairs, good if you are able to manage it. However, backpacks and footwear are not allowed and you have to turn those in before proceeding. The crowds were less but were able to see much of it. As far as the food, a mix of Indian and Western food, but completely vegetarian and eggless. I was surprised they had French fries and gobi manchurian. Didn't buy any this time but next time I'll plan to do so. We will be back when our travels take us there, but in the daytime.
    Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We're glad to hear you revisited ISKCON Bangalore after 15 years and found the visit enjoyable despite the stairs and restrictions on backpacks and footwear. We strive to offer a variety of vegetarian and eggless food options to cater to diverse tastes, and we're happy you noticed the mix of Indian and Western dishes. We look forward to welcoming you back during your next visit in the daytime. Hare Krishna!

    It's a beautiful temple. A bit disorganised maybe because it's going through some renovation/expansion works. There is no queue for buying sweets and snacks. People are all over and they tend to jump the queue 😅. In the main there is place you can sit meditate and sing. Strictly no pictures
    Thank you for your feedback. We're glad you find the temple beautiful. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the disorganization during our renovation and expansion works. Your comments regarding the queue management for sweets and snacks are noted, and we will work on improving this aspect. The main temple area is indeed a wonderful place for meditation and singing, and we appreciate your understanding of our no-picture policy to maintain the sanctity of the space. Hare Krishna!

    ISKON Bangalore guest house: good but can be made great
    Amazing location. You can walk peacefully to mangal arati!!! The rooms are pricey for non-members but I would have put that money in the hundi anyway. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are now being served for guests at a very nominal cost. It is unlimited but I found it to be too salty, spicy (too much chillies) and too many fried foods. May be management can be a leader in the industry and make it healthy.

    Its a really cool place, must see
    This temple is truly immense, radiating an abundance of positive energy. To reach the main temple, you ascend a series of stairs, passing through chanting steps, a novel concept that was new to me. The entire complex is immaculately maintained, reflecting the standards typical of Iskcon temples. Following your visit to the temple, you can explore the food court and indulge in a variety of delicious dishes. Additionally, there's a restaurant conveniently located nearby. While bags aren't permitted inside, free lockers are available for storage. This is undoubtedly a must-visit destination... Jai Shree Krishna!
    Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience! We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the positive energy, the chanting steps, and the overall immaculate maintenance of our temple. It's great that you also found the food court and restaurant convenient and enjoyed the delicious dishes offered. We strive to provide a seamless and enriching experience for all our visitors. Hare Krishna! Jai Shree Krishna! 🙏

    Pay the fast track 400 (indian rupees for up to 6 people) to skip all the lines. It's worth it. Got to experience the whole ceremony at the front row. Very nice. You have to leave your shoes at the bottom of the temple.
    Thank you for sharing your experience and tip! We are glad to hear that the Fast Track option enhanced your visit and allowed you to enjoy the ceremony from the front row. Your advice about leaving shoes at the bottom of the temple is helpful for future visitors. Hare Krishna!

Come here to spend about 2 hours. You get to see this immense building of temple built on a small hill near Mahalakshmi Layout. The nearest metro station is Mahalakshmi Layout and Sandal soap factory metro is also next close one. The temple provides normal entry for free as well as special entry for Rs.300 for a family which comes along with 4 laddu as Prasad and a book worth Rs.70. The route for special Darshan is shortened.
The Darshan means the view of Lord Krishna is just simply fascinating. Lord Krishna is seen with Radha, also seen with Balrama.
It takes about 25 minutes on a weekday to reach Lord Krishna's idol from the start.
After the Darshan there are stalls to buy books, clothes, toys and others that are related to Iskcon and Hare Krishna Hare Ram. Also there are stalls to have variety of good food, snacks and sweets.
Free prashad is provided to all visitors during the exit.
There is also a restaurant located at the base when you exit the top building where you can have meals on table.

This beautiful temple is one of the instittution of Hare Krishna. The ISKCON was founded in 1966 in New York by A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. If you are interested about Bakthi Yoga and its practice, learn some basics here.
Tips : You will have to remove footwear. Suggest you donate an amount and that will help you to walk through a special queue less crowded.

Had a bad experience and got shouted at by the fellow just because i moved in a queue without chanting hare ram. Krishna represents pure love but i dint find that they believe in what they are preaching. Very bad experience and has left a bad impression. I wont be considering going there again.

What a great experience. We have been here 4 or 5 times. It's a beautiful compound and the people are super nice. It's clean and a great way to see a temple. I world recommend to find out if it's a special day or not because it can get really crowded. Also, no shorts for men or women and you walk it all without shoes

This is a famous Lord Krishna temple where you need to take a long queue to complete the darshan and need take more than 1000 stair steps. If you are not well then avoid taking those steps. Photography is not allowed inside the temple premises hence not sharing any photo. A must visit pace in Bangalore

This is a Hindu Place of worship and is located in the heart of the city. It is managed by ISKCON and it carries a distinct signature of the same. The place is neat and clean and has elaborate arrangements for managing the devotees during these Covid times. There is a serenity and peacefulness inside the main sanctum and is a must visit place while in this area of Bengaluru.

The temple is a very nice experience, as others have described. My suggestion is to take the expedited lane, which for 300 rupees, allows you to "cut" the main line. In addition to that (potentially significant) advantage, you are given a special chanting experience, discounts on temple literature and a box of 2 take home sweets. Well worth it.

ISKCON temple in Bengaluru is always a great divine place. Weekends are always crowded but if we reach early in the evening before 6 pm, parking is not a problem. Finding a parking slot for cars after 6 pm on a week end is challenging.
