ISKCON Temple Delhi
ISKCON Temple Delhi, also known as Sri Sri Radha Parthasarathi Mandir is part of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (as the name suggests). Devoted to Vaishnavism – meaning they believe Vishnu is the creator of the universe, they worship mainly Krishna (avatar of Vishnu) and push for monotheism as a belief system.
I love ISKCON temples, they are well maintained, they have lots of books to offer to those seeking answers and I tend to feel a peace at their mandirs – be it truly placebo or be it the collective energy gathered by their daily chantings. – If a city has a ISKCON temple, its definitely worth the visit.
I go for the interesting paintings they hold on Hindu Mythology, the energy released during chantings and their food courts. This is second ISKCON temple I have visited in my life – the first one was Mumbai.
For those who travel a lot, they offer a membership where you get to stay in any of their temples worldwide – not sure about the costs but definitely a great way to travel the word and forget about accommodation.
I leave you with a few experiences ->
And of course, food at the Govinda Restaurant ->
I might take up on visiting them all in India – not for religious reasons, just to feel the aura at the places – definitely worth the time.
