  • It is an enjoyable experience for a weekend to go here and see the priests dance and chant to their lords name. But there are other reasons you can visit here if you are not in it for the god. They sell commodities inside the temple premises... They usually give you a photo of Lord Krishna on your way out with a cup of delicious prasadam. It costs 5₹ to keep your footwear safe in a sack, and they will give you a token with which you can take it take it back. The most important thing however is that it is quite peacefully and captivating when you enter the main hall and is a nice place to meditate in the morning.
  • Historical and very calm, composed place. But once you're inside, instead divine feeling, you'll be diverted to commercial things like eateries, books, calender's, idols etc etc. That's the exact reason why I give 3 stars to it. Also, a Samosa inside cost you 80 rupees, which is of 8 rupees outside. You're not allowed inside wearing shorts, hence they have alternate idea of doti, where you'll have to deposit 500/- (Unimaginable) and take it, which cost you maximum of 50 rupees !! This sums up everything.
  • Nice Place. As You All Know, The Temple is Famous For Lord Krishna. Must Visit Place. Super Infrastructure and Nice Architecture. The Temple Planning Is Awesome.
  • Set upon a natural Rocky Hill. The temple offers peace and a spiritual experience to the seeker. The cafeteria serves simple vegetarian meal and lovely organic filter coffee. Be prepared to walk a long distance without shoes. If the makes you uncomfortable then wear thick socks for walking. Socks are permitted.
  • It was good experience spiritual and something spiritual shopping also... Anyway it's well maintained and people are controlled very much according to chant of hare Rama hare Rama hare Krishna hare Krishna mantra... Veritys of food we can taste most of sweets and some days annadaan also available for devotees.
