Being an important religious center, Mayapur has many temples dedicated to Vishnu and to other deities. The most important of all, however, is the beautiful Iskcon Temple also known as Sri Chaitanya Candrodaya Temple that attracts thousands of devotees and tourists from different parts of India and world.

History

The ISCKON society plans to build its largest temple in Mayapur. The construction of this marvellous building has started in the city. When complete, this temple would be surrounded by the ISKCON society city and will also have its own Vedic planetarium. Right now, the city houses an ISKCON temple with Radha Madhava deities. The idols are surrounded by eight gopis, four on either side. The idols of Narasimhadeva and the Pancha-tattva can also be seen here. It is one of the most visited religious places in the city.
