Hare Krishna Temple of Understanding
Hare Krishna Temple of Understanding Review
This magnificent lotus-shaped temple opened in 1985 is at the heart of activities run by the city's International Society for Krishna Consciousness. Gold-tinted windows adorn the outside of the temple, and the interior has floors made of imported Italian marble. Colorful laser drawings depicting the life of the Hindu god Krishna cover the ceiling, and statues of Krishna and his consort Radha are elaborately dressed in traditional Indian attire. You need to remove your shoes when entering the temple.
