“serene and tranquill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

this place gives you peace. preferable to visit early morning or in the afternoon. I guess they usually close for some time in the afternoon but better to avoid rush time. Arti is a must attend.

“Hare Krishna Mandir”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The Hare Krishna Mandir (Lord Krishna/ISKCON Temple) is located in Juhu, a suburb of Mumbai. The temple was built in the 1970's on 4 acres of now prime real estate - close to Juhu beach. At the time this part of the suburbs was considered a remote part of Mumbai. Today this temple complex - Hare Krishna Land - is one of the most visited in all of India. It is considered a must visit pilgrim center with 25,000 visitors a day. Somehow it is still a very peaceful place.

The presiding Deities at the temple are Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai, Sri Sri Radha Rasabihari and Sri Sri Sita Rama Laxman Hanuman. The complex includes a marble temple, an auditorium, a restaurant, and even a guesthouse where visitors can stay and participate in the spiritual programs. There is a daily deity darshan and the many statues are very beautiful.

See the website for weekly programs and festivals/celebrations. The biggest celebration is probably Janmashtami - the auspicious day of the appearance of Lord Krishna.

To reach the temple: Take the train from Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) Station to either Vile Parle West or Andheri West station. From there take a rickshaw to the complex. You can also take the bus from either Andheri Station or certain areas of downtown Mumbai. JVPD Bus Depot is the closest stop. *Note*: the trip from downtown can take up to 2 hours depending on traffic.

Temple Timings:

4:30 am : Mangala arati
5:15 am : Tulsi-puja
7:15 am : Sringar darshan
7:30 am : Guru puja
8:00 am : Bhagavatam discourse

4:30 pm : Usthapana arati

Remove your shoes before entering. Be respectful of worshippers. Obey photography rules.
