The ISKCON or the International Society for Krishna Consciousness has established various temples for the worshipping of Lord Krishna in other parts of the country. The one in Raipur of Chhattisgarh is also quite popular and also known as Sri Sri Radha Rasbihari Temple. People mostly like to visit the ISKCON temple of Raipur for the meditation programmes. There are a lot of meditation programmes which are held by the ISKCON for the sake of keeping the mind calm and peaceful and which is open to all. Even if you are of a different religion or caste or do not belong to the ISKCON society, they would still allow you to take the programmes.
On Rathyatra and Janmasthami, (that is the time when Krishna was born), these festivals are hugely celebrated in these temples with grandeur and eloquence. Hence, if you are planning to visit the temple make sure to visit it during these festivals as it would also give you one of the first hand experiences of these magnanimous festivals. The ideal time to visit the temple is thereby could be put in the months of June-November as the festivals are usually held among this specific timeline. One can also visit it during the afternoons, when the “bhog” or the food that is served to the Lord is given to eat. The meals are said to be quite tasty and hygienic too.
Raipur ISKCON Temple open at 04:30 AM to 12:00 NOON and then again from 04:00 PM to 09:00 PM
Honestly speaking the place is good but the people there are very rude. I went there in the evening, after darshan I wanted to sit in the temple in silence to feel the serenity and calmness of the place. But there was on Maharaj Ji very senior and old, he literally asked me to get out of the temple. I was very disappointed. I understand your concerns and the Maharaj there must be learned but this is not the way to behave. In fact i wanted to buy some literature from there, but I could not because I was forced out. Pathetic experience at Raipur campus. I have been at many other Iskcon premises, their people ask us to stay and here they ask us to leave. My experience was very bad, especially with that old Maharaj Ji. This was my second time that I faced this and both times with the same person. It is a place of thankurji and I guess anyone can come there and stay within the allowed time. No one can ask me to leave from there as it is none of personal property. Thank you. Hare Krishna?
