The place is quiet and calm. This krishna temple is well maintained. Surrounding has a big ground, small lake and hill. The Rituals are followed like in India.

This mandir (temple) is a wonderful and enchanting place to visit for everyone.. The beautiful scenery just makes the whole experience even better. Not to mention the wonderful and caring people that help out there. Also, if anyone wants to take pictures outside then this is the spot to take them. My favorite part has to be the small pool/fountain outside, which gives way for wonderful photos.. Overall, it's a great place!
Very beautiful visited fir school trip for daughter. Landscape and statues are spectacular as well as inside. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. Learned many new things about the religion. Recommend visiting and experiencing the culture.
