The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), colloquially known as the Hare Krishna movement, is a Hindu religious organisation. The ISCKON temple here is set up on a four-acre land near the Juhu beach.

Opened in 1978, it is one of the most visited temple complexes in the country. The complex includes a spacious marble temple, an auditorium, a restaurant and a twin-towered seven-storey guest house where visitors can stay.
