Krishna Balaram Temple Complex

Top choice hindu temple in Vrindavan

The International Society for Krishna Consciousness, also known as the Hare Krishnas, is based at the Krishna Balaram temple complex (Iskcon Temple). Accessed through a beautiful, white marble gate, the temple houses the tomb of Swami Prabhupada (1896–1977), the founder of the Hare Krishna organisation.

Inside the temple is a whirl of activity, filled with chanting and singing, and devotees prostrating in prayer, playing drums, and consulting with monks. Several hundred foreigners attend courses and seminars here annually.

The temple is closed to the public at various times of the day, most significantly from 12.45pm to 4pm (4.30pm in summer). If you're carrying a bag, you must use the side entrance.
