ISKCON Temple Chennai is a Vaishnava temple dedicated to Lord Krishna. It is located on the East Coast Road at Akkarai, Sholinganallur in southern Chennai. Built on 1.5 acres of land, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) Chennai is the largest Radha Krishna temple in Tamil Nadu. It was formally inaugurated on 26 April 2012.

It has an auditorium for cultural and spiritual programmes and a ‘prasadam’ hall.


Thousands of devotees witnessed the pran pratishta when the idols of Lord Krishna and Radha and their sakhis — Lalitha and Vishaka — were installed in one of the three beautifully-carved teak — wood altars in the temple hall.

The other idols in the hall include those of Lord Chaitanya and Lord Nityananda; Lord Jagannath, Baladev and Subhadra.

After the Kumbhabishekam and Maha mangala arati — the first decorated darshan of the deities — a helicopter showered flowers over the ‘gopurams’ built in the Kalinga style with a Sudarshana Chakra on the top of the tallest ‘gopuram.’


The temple has been designed under the expertise of Bhanu Swami.


The entrance of the temple is marked by the representation of the universe. The idols in the temple on Burkit Road unit have also been shifted to this temple.


The temple is part of the Centre for Spiritual Art and Culture
