“Worth a trip to visit some of Durban's Indian culture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

Not all people are Hare Krishna devotees so you wont see the majority of Durban people here but the temple is worth a visit and they've got some very good veg. dishes on offer.

Plus in the heart of Chatsworth if you to experience this township.

“Cultural and spiritual ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

We went there around 11 and took a look around. Got speaking to one of the monks who told us about the food kitchen (foos4life - feeding those in need) and some of the other temples around the world and philosophies.

Inside it's very peaceful and relaxing and you can take photos quite freely.

We were told about the vegetarian restaurant downstairs (which was excellent and cheap) and the 12:30 prayers which was finished off with the Hare Krishna chanters returning.

Well worth seeing especially of you time it well with the main prayers of the day.
