Vrindavan A verdant wooded area on the banks of the River Yamuna, which served as the romantic playground of Lord Krishna during his younger days. Placid stretches of water, revered Krishna temples, the sadhus, the "radhe radhe" greeting, and the tasty prasad sold in the by-lanes and lots of greenery make it a vibrant holy place.

The erstwhile playing ground of Lord Krishna, Vrindavan (Vraj), Uttar Pradesh, is a highly sacred place amongst Hindus. It is said that the trees in this garden are spiritual beings that transform into Lord Krishna's romantic cohorts after dusk and the strange fact is that most of these otherwise healthy trees have inexplicably dry rotten roots. In fact, there is a firm belief that the Lord appears here and anybody who dares to stay here after dark does not live to tell the tale. In fact, there are graves in Vrindavan (Vraj), which are supposedly the final resting place of such curious visitors. Besides visiting the temples in and around Vrindavan (Vraj), one can also go for a leisurely boat cruise across the Yamuna.

Madan Mohan Banke Bihari Path, Bankebihari Colony, Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh 281001, India Bankey Bihari Temple is a major temple in Vrindavan dedicated to Lord Krishna. Mythologically, Krishna spent his childhood and teenage days in Vrindavan, so the idol here is in the form of Nand Gopal that is the childhood incarnation of Krishna. The idol is black in colour and is usually kept inside the premises behind the curtain. The people here have a strong belief that if some devotee looks at the idol with immense devotion the idol or the God goes away with him or her. To make this belief a strong one, the Pujaris keep putting curtain after every few minutes.
