ISKCON temple Chennai: Pooja timings

ISKCON Chennai has been operational since sometime. We visited it recently
It is located off ECR (after Neelankarai, before ECR link road). Take turn near Malgudi restaurant. Locating this turn could be difficult during darkness.

The main idols of Radha and Krishna
The main hall
The idols will be covered up most of the time, except during Pooja. Note the Puja timings below and plan your visit accordingly. Volunteers read out sections from Bhagavad Gita and explain its meaning.

 Above: temple design is nice and worth taking close look.

 If you have money to spare, there're several donation options
 There're huge number of beautiful paintings depicting lord Krishna's life events.
Visitors will also be given a Rudraksha with 108 beads to meditate with. (utter following phrase 108 times:)
Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

Temple campus has free drinking water, prasadam and chappal stand. Guest house and other facilities are being built
