Felt as if I was in a super market or some western building with Krishna instead of Jesus. Those monks were more interested in knowing where I was working, told him I'm the driver for a family who went inside the temple and he walked away. Also they were asking the people to visit regularly, not sure what their intention... More

I have been to south indian temples but the kind of joy that Iskon brings to you is unbelievable. It is located away from the city so there is lot of space around.There were songs, bhajans and dance. Lovely! Simply lovely!

Iskcon is totally different from all other hindu temples. I found that they are effectively using Marketing techniques to promote the same. Well designed temple, but we wont feel to worship, because the system at Iskcon is totally different. For me, this is a place to relax and to enjoy the evening climate.

If you are driving down the coast on ECR, then this place is a a great stop if you like temples. This Krishna temple was built recently and very impressive. It is just a short drive from the main road and you could park all around. The neighborhood is still not fully commercially developed so there is still a bit... More

It is far away from the hustle bustle of city and at the ECR road after VGP. Best place to meditate.

This is not just the cleanest temple in Chennai but also the most artistic of its kind (of the temples built in the recent past). The aarthi is the best time to dance and 'let it go'. One could enjoy the evening breeze by getting seated on the temple steps. The two stone elephants in the entrance is a treat... More

This is fairly big temple on ECR Road. The Deity is visible wherever you stand on the huge hall. A must-visit for all devotees. There is a grandeur associated with all ISKCON temples and this is no exception. There is ample parking space as well.

Best time to go to temple is during Sunday afternoons. So you can get Prashads and get good darshans and lectures.

The surroundings are very quiet and clean. The people are polite.If you go on days when there is no big celebration, you can sit in the main hall and meditate for a long time without any disturbance. Very peaceful.
