No trip to Madurai is complete without visiting the beautiful and serene ISKCON Temple here. Dedicated to Radha and Krishna, the temple is also known as Radha Mathurapati, one of the most popular places to visit in Madurai. The beige and white palace-like complex of the temple has stunningly carved pillars, walls, and sanctums keeping in line with the ISKCON heritage and beauty.
Resounding Krishna hymns, curling clouds and fragrance of burning incense, and tinkling bells offer the perfect atmosphere for meditation here. The stark-white marble idols of Lord Krishna and Radha are adorned with beautiful ‘vastrams’ and jewellery. Don’t miss to attend the evening aartis, devotional lectures, and kirtans not only to gain more spiritual knowledge but to also lose yourself in an ambience that reverberates with hypnotic chants and divine rhythms. There is a small eatery inside the complex that serves simple but delicious vegetarian food.
Timings: Every day from 4:45 am-12: 30 pm and 5:00 pm-8: 15 pm.
