ISKCON Temple Mumbai Address: Sri Sri Radha Rasabihari Temple, Hare Krishna Land, Juhu Church Road, Juhu, Chand Society, MHADA Colony, Juhu, Mumbai, Maharashtra, 400049, India

The magnificent ISKCON Temple located in Juhu, Mumbai was built in the 1970s under the guidance of Swami Prabhupada, the founder of the International Society of Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). The aim of building this shrine was to spread the consciousness of Lord Krishna. It is among the finest of the 40 ISKCON temples in the country and one of the top tourist attractions of Mumbai.

ISKCON Temple premise sprawls over an area of 4 acres, consisting of a restaurant, library, guesthouse, bakery and halls in the Heaven of Earth complex, besides the main shrine. The temple houses the idols of Lord Krishna and Radha; Lord Rama, Sita, Lakshmana and Hanuman; and Lord Gaur Nitai.

This splendid temple is also known by the name of ‘Radha Rasabihariji Temple’ and ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna Temple’. It is an ideal place to pray, meditate and acquire the great knowledge of spiritualism. Another wonderful offering of this shrine is its special courses on Vedic education, Srimad Bhagavatam, Bhagavad Gita, Yoga and stress management.

Though the temple is thronged by thousands of devotees throughout the year from far and wide, the highest footfall is seen on ‘Janmashtami’, the birth day of Lord Krishna. On this day, the shrine celebrates the birthday of Shri Krishna with great joy and fervor. Besides this, other special occasions like Jagannath Rath Yatra, Radhastami, Ramnavami and Govardhan Puja are celebrated in the temple with grand festivities.

History of ISKCON Temple, Mumbai

In the early 1970s, Juhu was not what it is today; it was somewhat a secluded area and building a temple here was something none could imagine, but Swami Prabhupada did, and with much difficulty acquired the 4 acres of land (now called Hare Krishna Land) to build the temple. He himself had installed the idols of the deities at the temple.

On 14th January 1978, ISKCON Juhu was opened to the public and ever since has become an important place of worship for the devotees of Lord Krishna.

Architecture of Mumbai ISKCON Temple

Made of white marble, the temple of ISKCON in Mumbai looks absolutely stunning even from a distance and its beautifully inscribed entrance simply adds to its charm.
