ISKCON Sri Radha Krishna-Chandra Temple in Bangalore
The ISKCON temple is situated in Hare Krishna Hill at Jaynagar in Bangalore. This temple is open to the public from 7 am to 1 pm and further from 4:30 pm to 8:30 pm.
On an average, 6000 to 8000 devotees visit this place everyday. All these devotees are offered prasad (God’s food). The prime attraction of this Sri Radha Krishna-Chandra Temple is the gold plated Kalash that is situated on the roof of the temple.
The weight of this structure is almost 1.5 tons. Another important feature of this temple is the huge flag post (or Dwarjastambha). The height of this flag post is 56 feet and this is the tallest in the world.
In this temple, there are large chandeliers that give the appearance of an inverted lotus flower. The temple is based on a plot of seven acres of empty hilly terrain.
The International Society for Krishna Consciousness led by the president Madhu Pandit Dasa bought the land for the temple from the Bangalore Development Authority for eleven lakhs.
