“Shri Radhakrishna Temple/ JK Temple”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

A must visit place while you are in Kanpur. Beautiful temple with nice architecture and good greenary all around. In the evenings when the fountains start, it adds further grandeur to the temple.

Inside the temple, the central dieties are Lord Krishna And Radha hence the name. Other dieties are Lord Hanuman, Ardhnarishvar, Shivlingam. All the statues are beautifully carved and immensely attractive.The dresses and jewellary etc. are also very tastefully done and it is changed frequently. The temple was built by the famous industrial house of India & Kanpur -the JK group, and they are still maintaining it. The Inlay work on the wall inside the temple is exceptionally fine with semi-precious stones and all, depicting various stories /incidents from mythology. The dome inside the temple has beatiful decorations of 'Arms' linked to the Gods.
