Iskcon Temple

My family really wants to go around some places in Bangalore and so I discussed with one of my close friend for a right place. We planned to go ISKCON (The International Society for Krishna Consciousness) temple and MG Road. We started to temple, which is near to Yeshawantpur (I am not aware of this place before even I didn’t browse before going to this place). Both the couples reached there at 6:30 pm. The first sight of the temple shows this temple is well organized. In the entrance for temple we got a card, which has HARE RAMA HARE KRISHNA mantra in multiple languages. Also the card requests us to chant audible to the person itself in each and every step.

Inside temple, we had a look into Prabhupada's history, lot of shops and a big canteen (we have to cross this canteen while exiting the temple), so it insists us to have something after a long walk in temple. As per my concern I feel this temple is well constructed, planned in religious way, the trust want us to know about ISKCON and they want to make money also, which made this temple as a commercial tourism place rather a religious place. Finally they are providing a free prasadham for all(tasty pongal we had on that day)

IndraGandhi Fountain Museum

After ISKCON Temple my friend drove car to fountain museum which is in ALIASKER ROAD, as we postponded MG Raod trip for someotherday. We reached the place at 7:40 and we got ticket, which cost 10Rs per adult. It has 1/2 hr program, 3 shows daily that starts at 7:00 daily. Show started exactly at 8:00 pm as scheduled with vante mataram musical song. Colourfull Water started dancing as per music. WOW it’s really a good experience for me to watch this type of show after a long time. They are playing few kannada songs also. Great place to visit in Bnglr.
