Safe to visit Iskcon Temple in the evening?

My husband and I will be vacationing in Delhi for a few short days, and while we are not religious, we would like to experience and see the Iskcon Temple and prayer time. The only time we have available is in the evening for the 7PM prayer.

What is the safest and best type of transit at this time of day?

Is it safe to go to the temple at this time?

What is the safest and best way to get back to our hotel, which is near Rajiv Chowk?

Thank you!

It is quite safe.

You can look at Metro train from Rajiv Chowk : The Nehru Place station is the closest to the temple and is just a 5 minute walk. The alternate option would be Kailash Colony Station
