Although less than fifty years on the global stage, ISKCON has expanded widely since its founding by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda in New York City in 1966.

Behind these shrines, there is a 'parikrama' or compound, where pictures of Iskcon temples across the world are displayed. Apart from these pictures, paintings made by Russian painters, are also displayed depicting frolic scenes from the life-history of Radha-Krishna

Outside the shrine, there is an image of 'Garuda' facing the shrine of Radha-Krishna. Here, many people can be seen chanting the 'Mahamantra' of Hare Krishna society.

ISKCON belongs to the Gaudiya-Vaishnava sampradāya, a monotheistic tradition within the Vedic or Hindu culture. Philosophically it is based on the Sanskrit texts Bhagavad-gītā and the Bhagavat Purana, or Srimad Bhagavatam. These are the historic texts of the devotional bhakti yoga tradition, which teaches that the ultimate goal for all living beings is to reawaken their love for God, or Lord Krishna, the “all-attractive one”.

Many leading academics have highlighted ISKCON’s authenticity. Diana Eck, Professor of Comparative Religion and Indian Studies at Harvard University, describes the movement as “a tradition that commands a respected place in the religious life of humankind.”

In the 1980s Dr. A. L. Basham, one of the world’s authorities on Indian history and culture, wrote of ISKCON that, “It arose out of next to nothing in less than twenty years and has become known all over the West. This, I feel, is a sign of the times and an important fact in the history of the Western world.”

Members of ISKCON practice bhakti-yoga in their homes and also worship in temples. They also promote bhakti-yoga, or Krishna Consciousness, through festivals, the performing arts, yoga seminars, public chanting, and the distribution of the society’s literatures.

A Robot show is worth-watching as the electronic power is merged perfectly with the religious thoughts and pictures. Here, the power of meditation is proved with the facts of science.

Down stairs, there are gift shops that offer many religious articles and objects to serve as a souvenir of this trip. In the food-shop, many eatables of vegetarian nature are available. Besides this food shop, a full-fledged vegetarian restaurant by the name of 'Govinda' also makes the part of this temple

During the whole month of 'Sawan' (July-Aug) and 'Kartik' (Oct-Nov), the shrine is decked wonderfully with flowers. Spiritual discourses and chants enhance the divine atmosphere of the temple.
