ISCKON Temple is a divine and spiritual getaway from all the hustle and bustle of the capital city of Mumbai. Dedicated to Lord Krishna who is considered as the eighth avatar of Lord Vishnu, the temple is clad in marble and glass. Meters away from the Juhu Beach, incorporating Iskcon Temple in your weekend plans might just be the perfect peaceful escape you are looking for. This place has a tranquil feel about it and the in-house vegetarian restaurant serves exceptional food at cheap rates.
The ISCKON Temple has an impressive architecture and paintings on the temple walls depict scenes from the Mahabharata. Swami Prabhupada, a devout follower of Krishna went to the United States at the age of 69 and founded Iskcon when most men look for the comfort of homes. Gates are opened at four thirty in the morning for visitors. The best time to visit ISKCON temple is early in the morning when the deities are decorated with flowers. A charged ambience with the humming of mantras from devotees during the daily morning and evening Aarti and the delicious Prasad served just after is a must during a visit to this place.
