In the series of worldwide ISKCON Temples, the one at Ahmedabad boasts of splendid architecture, resulting from the blend of Gujarati and Rajasthani styles. Dedicated to Lord Krishna (or Govindha) and his beloved Radha, the temple is also known as Sri Sri Radha Govindha Dham. The white marble structure has beautiful gigantic domes that bear hand-carved depictions of Krishna’s life. In the interior, there are entrancing idols of Radha-Krishna, Rama-Sita-Lakshmana and Hanuman, Gaura-Nitai, Jagannath-Baldev-Subhadraji and many more.

The huge prayer hall can accommodate thousands of devotees at a time and is elaborately designed with marble floors, embellished ceilings, intricately designed windows and ornamented pillars. Hymns, Bhajans and sacred chanting throughout the day add mysticism to the whole complex. The temple is famous for its tasty prasada which is also distributed at a large scale to the poor and hungry. Special celebrations take place on the occasion of Janamashthmi and during popular events like Krishna Fetsival, Gita Marathon and Govardhan Puja.
