  The temple looks majestic on a sunny day

The temple is in the heart of the city- Mahalakshmi Layout/Yeshwantpur junction. For Krishna devotees it is a must do as the temple is beautiful and very very well maintained. Even for people who are not Indians this is a must do as you will find that most of the priests are well versed in English and other foreign languages. It is not a typical temple- ISKCON stands for the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. It follows the ways of life outlined in the Bhagavad Gita and Bhagavat purana.
One of the first memories I have of Iskon was as a fun temple where they serve 'samosas and snacks' as 'prashadam'. Also you have monitors in the premises that freely advertise who has sponsored today's lunch or other such donations. It is definitely a different experience, don't head here for as traditional experience.
