A day at ISKCON Punjabi Bagh can leave a person optimistic for a whole week or even a month, for the purity in the air is such that a person is bound to feel blissful.
As one enters through the temple beautiful arch, a person can start hearing the collision of the chymbals, a beautiful voice and most of the times people dancing and singing along in ecstasy.Wecomed by the gleaming faces and bright smiles of the Hare Krishnas, one finds towards the left hand of the temple, Garuda Maharaj the mount of Lord Visnu or Krsna. After paying obesciences to him, one can see the wonderful deities. The deities enchant a person so much that one cannot stop looking at them. The music at the same time is such that the feet starts moving on its own, the body grooving and one cant stop clapping.

With myriad books, photographs, notebooks and loads of other stuff, a person usually finds something or the else for himself/herself or closed ones. The Govindas is again a place where one must go while visiting ISKCON Punjabi Bagh as some delicacies are so exquisite that one is left with no choice but to get some more packed after eating and visit again to have a samosa or a ras malai with that one new friend made at ISKCON Punjabi Bagh.
