The ISKCON Temple is a popular spot for recreation and worship in Rajahmundry. It is otherwise known as Gouthami Ghat. The temple complex is spread over an area of 2 acres and is the second largest ISKCON temple next to the ISKCON temple in Bangalore. The ISKCON or International Society for Krishna Consciousness has built this temple on the banks of the Godavari. The temple is also called the Ramananda Raya Gaudiya Math in remembrance of the fact that Lord Sri Chaitanya and Ramananda Raya exchanged dialogue at this site. According to history, the great saint Shrri Krishan Chaitanya Maha Prabhu was worshipped at this very site as an incarnation of Lord Krishna around 500 years ago.
