Among several temples established by the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) around the world, one in the Juhu region of Mumbai attracts hordes of devotees and tourists. Located close to the Juhu Beach, the astounding white marble temple stands in a huge complex which also houses an auditorium, a restaurant and a spacious guest house for the devotees to stay.

Dedicated to Lord Krishna, the temple is also popular by the names like Sri Sri Radha Rasabihari Temple and Hare Rama Hare Krishna Temple. The construction of the temple at a place which was once nothing more than a dense forest is indeed a matter of surprise. The dream was conceived by Swami Prabhupada who purchased the land and led the temple’s construction in 1978. Beautiful paintings and exotic interiors along with marble statues of various Hindu deities create spellbinding ambiance inside the temple.

Constant chanting of Mahamantra, the divine syllable, fills the atmosphere with utmost spirituality. Attending prayers and bhajans organized on daily basis can be an experience of the lifetime. You can also visit the temple during Janamashthmi and other special occasions when exclusive cultural programmes are held.

Road: The temple is located in Juhu which boasts of excellent road connectivity with the rest of Mumbai. The JVPD bus depot is only about a km. away and served by many popular bus routes. You can also hire taxis or auto-rickshaws to reach the temple.

Railway: Vile Parle Station and Andheri Station are the closest railway stations to the temple, each about 3 km. away. You can hire an auto-rickshaw or a cycle-rickshaw from any of these stations.

Airway: In the close proximity to the temple is Mumbai’s international airport, about 7 km. away. You can hire a taxi or an auto-rickshaw from here to conveniently access the temple.
