Located in the Rajajinagar area, this shrine dedicated to Lord Krishna is not just a religious temple but also a cultural complex with a wide range of engaging activities for ardent devotees.
The temple has some impressive deities of Sri Sri Radha Krishnachandra, Sri Sri Krishna Balarama, Sri Sri Nitai Gauranga, Sri Srinivasa Govinda and Sri Prahlada Narasimha. And let me tell you, the architecture is simply breathtaking. The gold-plated flag post standing tall at 17 metres and the gilded Kalash Shikharas at 8.5 metres are some of the most striking features of the temple. It’s like you’re entering a kingdom of the gods!
The intricate stone carvings and the beautiful archways with water fountains will make you feel like you’ve stepped into a different world altogether. The temple complex also has an expansive garden and an amphitheatre for cultural programmes. You might as well stay here forever!
But wait, there’s more! The temple has impeccable food and prasadam services within its complex. Nitya Annanda in ISKCON provides sumptuous lunch from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm. Krishnamrita is another prasadam distribution program under the temple’s premises, which prepares delicious food using Sattvic techniques. And if that wasn’t enough, the temple also provides mid-day meals for underprivileged children in partnership with various government and government-aided schools.
Getting to the temple is a breeze too! It’s well-connected to different parts of the city through various modes of transport. You can hop on a BMTC bus or take a taxi to reach the temple. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also take the metro to Mahalakshmi Station, which is just a 5-minute walk from the temple.
So, if you’re in Bangalore, don’t miss the chance to visit this spectacular temple. Who knows, you might just find your inner Krishna consciousness and never want to leave!
