Iskcon
Probably Juhu’s most beautiful and peaceful place, Iskcon stands for The International Society for Krishna Conciousness. It was founded in the New York city for the staunch devotees of Lord Krishna but has expanded rapidly over the years. Iskcon Juhu flaunts India’s most beautiful temple for Lord Krishna and has grown into a complex that includes a huge auditorium, restaurant and a seven storey guest house for visitors to stay. The temple holds spiritual programs daily, so if you’re looking for peace, participate in one of them or just visit the beautiful temple and sit peacefully, especially if you’re a religious person.
