Shri Vrindavan Dham
The ancient vedic scriptures inform us that the beautiful land of Vrindavan is non-different from the spritual world. Elsewhere is the vedas Lord krishna has also declared that he never leaves Vrindavan and is eternally present there ii his transcedental sprititual form. Therefore to reside in Vrindavan is exactly same as residing within the spritual world, and thereby directly associating with the supreme personality of Godhead Lord Sri Krishna.
One of the oldest cities on the banks of Yamuna, Vrindavan is considered to be one of the most important places of pilgrimage for the devotees of Krishna. It is said that Lord Krishna had spent his childhood in Vrindavan. The name of the city has been derived from Vrinda (meaning basil) and van (meaning grove) which perhaps refer to the two small groves at Nidhivan and Seva Kunj. Since Vrindavan is considered to be a sacred place, a large number of people come here to abandon their worldly life. The city of Vrindavan hosts hundreds of Lord Krishna and Radha temples scattered throughout, the most famous ones being Banke Bihari temple and the world-famous ISKCON temple. The vibrant surroundings perfectly depict the playful and benevolent nature of Lord Krishna. Located along the waters of River Yamuna, the numerous temples set amidst the thick woods and lush greenery of Vrindavan are the major attractions here.
