Located on the East Coast Road in southern Chennai, ISKCON Temple is one of the most popular establishments by the ISKCON society in India.

The temple is built on five levels, with the main temple hall covering a whopping 7,000 square feet, while an auditorium for cultural and spiritual programs is located on the ground floor. And if you’re looking for some good ol’ spiritual nourishment, head down to the basement prasadam hall, where you can indulge in some delectable temple food.
But what really sets ISKCON Temple apart is its aim to transform the materialistic minds into a spiritual uniqueness of absolute love. And it’s not just the teachings that do the job – the splendid chandelier that projects several colours on the walls and ceiling is a testament to this. Plus, the temple visually exhibits various vastu shastra features.
Feeling lost? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. The entrance to the temple is noticeable by the illustration of the universe or the bhu-mandala on the marble floor. And if you’re worried about transportation, fear not – you can take a Metropolitan Transport Corporation bus from different parts of the city or travel by auto rickshaw or taxi, both of which will drop you right at the main gate of the temple.
