ISKON temple in Bangalore-splendid and divine

Updated on February 11, 2012

Beautiful home for krishna

 Bangalore is the famous 'silicon city of India'. The old , historic capital is now famous for so many things. It is an interesting place which tourists should not miss in India.Since past 30 years, a new attraction is added to Bangalore beauty.That is,ISKON society has established a very fine temple for Lord Krishna, in Bangalore.

The temple has been established on a small mud hill, about 200 feet in height.All the natural contours of the land -its, ups and downs, rocks, etc, are retained. Temple has typical south Indian style 'gopurams' on four sides.

It is a concrete temple. Very well maintained- astonihingly clean and sublime. AT night and during festivals, it looks exquisitely beautiful.

Here are some photographs of the temple taken by Mr. M Jinaraja Hegde, a well known photographer from karnataka.

      You are welcome to visit the temple. But You should leave your footwear at the counter. You should visit silently and keep your mobiles in silent mode.

      The beautiful and a significant divine was really reserved by Krishna as a unused and rocky piece of waste land in Bengaluru. Thanks to the person who could identify the Holy Place for constructing the ISKON Temple.

      I visited the temple in the month of Jan 2009 for the first time, It was really a great pleasure to be there and most importatntly i felt that you feel a kind of peace in your mind. This is the place where you'll find yourself near to God.

      Bbudoyono Sir,

      Indonesia had greater number of Hindus till 6th century. It was under the rule of Indian Hindu kings.It is only of 11th century, after the invasion of Iraqui muslim rulers the hinduism became weak.

      Indian culture is very familiar to Us, Indonesian. Lathough the majority are Muslims the story of Mahabarata and Ramayana are very popular. Over the centuries our writers have added soem details to the story so now they dufferent from yours. Krisna or Kresno in Javanese language is also known and respected.

      I visited the temple last week for the first time in my life from Chennai. I felt like having darshan of Balji at Tirupati Temple when I saw Lord Venkateswara shrine at ISCON. Excellent. The slogan, "Hare Rama ..............Hare Hare" is still ringing in my mind.
