ISKCON Temple, Bhubaneswar

Learn about the ways of Krishna at ISKCON Temple, where you can observe believers chanting at daily puja (a ritual prayer). Relatively small and modest comparing to other ISKCON temples, this one was built in 1991 by Gour Govinda Swami--a disciple of Swami Prabhupada, founder of Hare Krishnas. The site attracts pilgrims from around the world and features an ornate interior with three altars dedicated to Lord Krishna, his elder brother Balaram, his younger sister Subhadra, Gaura Nithai, and the lord of the universe Jagannath. Note that the temple's restaurant gets crowded during lunch hours. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Bhubaneswar holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the ISKCON Temple and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • divinity and spirituality will kiss your heart as as soon as you enter the shrine. Highly gorgeous lordships will leave you with complete amazement. Worth to try the temple prasadam and spiritual books.
  • They run this place for Pure business purpose. Food prices are super hiked. If you want to take away their "prasad" then you better come with 3-4 peoples because they take 1-2 hours easily . And food basically has no taste neither sweet nor sour.
  • The place is situated right next to indradhanu market and just a walk of 1 minute from the road. The structures are beautifully crafted adding to the good vibes that this place offers. This place is well managed and the eatery here offers pocket friendly prices with a wide range of option to choose from. All in all you get to see the almighty and relax 😊
  • The Home Of Lord Jagannath & Lord Krishna.The Temple Is Calm,Queit And Very Clean.When You Going To The Temple You Can Feel The Calm From Your Heart.You Can Actually Feel The Availability Of God.Really This Is The Amazing Place For Every People.
  • Great place. Temple is wonderful. Evening Kirtan was exhilarating. Parking is a problem (particularly for 4 wheelers).
