As part of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), the temple is situated on the Chord Road and is built on a hillock with scenic surroundings. As a part of the Hare Krishna movement in India, its followers believe that Hindu Lord Krishna is the creator of this world and is the central theme of their movement.
This temple was established in Bengaluru in 1996. The temple spans across the length of 4-5 football grounds and is quite the sight to see. Massive pillars, a very divine idol for worship, laser shows and living quarters, class rooms, yoga centres, dance studios, gift shops and restaurants signify this place of worship. A lot of foreign visitors attend workshops and spiritual programmes here. The annual Rath Yathra, (Chariot Procession) of Krishna and Balrama is attended by thousands of devotes.
