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.

    The place is nice. Quiet and peaceful. But the thing I don't like about Iskcon is they ask for money in everything.  more »
