Lavish Temple of Krishna, beautifull temple, building is huge, cumpound is huge, decoration is divine, beautifull is the lowest word, lavish temple, food is good at their restaurant which is little away from main temple. but you should watch the Shringar(decoration of God's statue). visit at the evening time.

The enermous temple where marbel use is liberal, is among the best ISCON temples in the world. Try to take in an "Aarti" - it is amazing to see how many faiths have united to worship the Hindu god Krishna.
