ISKCON temple in Kanpur is one of the most popular places in Kanpur. If you are a peace loving person, then you should visit this place. ISKCON stands for an International Society of Krishna Consciousness. The main temple is situated around 4 km away from Kanpur; this is mainly located on the Mainawati marg. The main temple was being constructed on 12 yardlands besides the river Ganges. After the completion, this massive structure contains the Vedic ashram, musical fountain, some restaurants, and a large seminar hall.
The inside of this temple is also constructed precisely. The main temple consists of the idols of the RADHA and MADHAV made of marble, and these were decorated with colourful clothes and flowers. The temple also contains the idols of Lord Rama, Laxman, SITA, and HANUMAN. All the gods were decorated with colourful costumes and flowers. The inside feel of the temple is charming. The inner aroma will let you feel like heaven.
There is a small shop inside the temple where they usually sell the books related to the Hindu religion like Bhagwad Geeta, Jagannath Rath Yatra etc. One can also find some particular gift item.
The ambience of the iskcon temple is very peaceful. People mainly visit this place to enjoy the ambience of the surroundings. The temple consists of the large garden in its boundary. There are some rides in the middle of the garden for children. You can enjoy with your family and friends. When you sit in the garden, you can feel the nature around you. The chirping sound of birds, the children playing in the park and the whole green land will make you feel like heaven.
If you are living in a congested city area, then I would recommend you to visit ISKCON temple and enjoy the peace of nature, i.e. almost impossible inside the city area.
The iskcon temple always opens at 4:00 am morning and closed at 1:00 p.m. and again begins at 4:00 pm evening and closed at 8:30 pm evening. If you are planning a trip to Kanpur, then you should visit this place one time.
According to me the best time to visit is between 6:00 am to 11:00 am and 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm in these time slots you can enjoy the natural beauty of the place. So the brief Description is below:
Morning: 4:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Evening: 4:00 PM – 8:30PM
As I told you above, the ISKCON temple also has some restaurants and shops in its boundaries. Govinda Restaurant, inside ISKCON’s boundary, will serve you mouth-watering dishes. As of my own experience, you must have DOSA SAMBHAR. It tastes good. Apart from Govinda restaurant, you can enjoy deshi ghee chat. This is one of the limited edition items. Very fewer places serve this quality. So you must try this at any cost. However, it’ll cost slightly much but don’t worry you are paying the actual price.
ISCKON is the best place to visit during weekends. Here, you will experience the worship environment along with the perks of entertainment. The best time to visit here is around 5:00 PM. You can enjoy aarti and after that have dinner at Govinda and return home. Before aarti, don’t forget to enjoy some time with your family in the garden as well as in the meantime, you can have a chat. That’s all for today. I hope you guys enjoyed reading this.
