International Society for Krishna Consciousness, also popularly known as the Hare Krishna movement is a spiritual society founded by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada in July 1966 in New York. ISKCON belongs to the Gaudiya-Vaishnava Sampradaya, a monotheistic tradition within the Vedic culture.

The aim of ISKCON is to acquaint the world with the universal principles of self-realization and God consciousness so that they may derive the highest benefits of spiritual understanding, unity, progress and peace. Vedic literature recommends that in the present age of Kali-yuga the most effective means of achieving self-realization is to chant the Holy Name of Lord Krishna and understanding Him by hearing and reading about Him. According to Shri Yudhistir Govinda Das, Deputy Director - Communications, ISKCON India stated "This beautifully designed project has been constructed with the love and devotion of devotees and well-wishers and would serve as a temple, meditation point and also a place of education to learn the culture of India and its Vedic tradition for the people of NCR."

ISKCON comprises of over 500 temples, 40 rural communities and over 100 vegetarian restaurants (Govinda) worldwide. It also conducts special projects throughout the world, such as "Food for Life", the only free vegetarian relief program in the world. ISKCON also regularly conducts seminars on stress management for the corporate sector and college students.
