Lonely Planet review
We’ve mentioned lots of churches, voodoo temples and even a synagogue in this city, and we’re not leaving the International Society of Krishna Consciousness – you probably know them as Hare Krishnas – out of the loop. The Krishnas worship in a rather gorgeous house plopped right on Esplanade, and have regular veggie buffets, pujas (prayer ceremonies) and lectures; in addition, the interior of the temple is as colorfully close to India as you’ll get in the Big Easy. Check their MySpace page or call ahead for details on when the temple is open to the public.
