ISKCON Temple


The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) was founded by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada in 1966. It belongs to the Gaudiya Vaisnava tradition, a devotional tradition based on the teachings of Bhagavad-gita and Srimad-Bhagavatam.
Hare Krishna Land (ISKCON Juhu) is set upon four acres of prime land near Juhu beach.
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, founder of ISKCON, inspired the construction of this beautiful temple of Lord Krishna in Mumbai
Opened in 1978, the complex includes a spacious marble temple, a recently renovated auditorium, a huge restaurant and a twin towered seven-storey guest house where visitors can
stay and participate in the daily spiritual programs of the temple

  1. Very beautiful image of Hare Krishna Temple, which I visit often.
    It feels great to cross your legs and sit quietly in a corner and pray. Even if your mind is disturbed just sit and reflect upon your thoughts, life and see the difference.
