One of the most renowned temples dedicated to Lord Krishna, is the Banke Bihari Temple. The idol of the deity is known as Thakur Ji, and the body is almost black in colour. The deity is taken care of like a child and thus all the rituals here are done like those for a child. Thus, there is no early morning aarti and no loud temple bells and conches here, unlike those in most temples in Vrindavan. According to belief, the idol of the deity evokes such devotion inside a devotee, that the priests keep the idol behind a curtain to stop that from happening. The curtain is removed from time to time, and only for a short period of time. The temple is decorated like a dream during the festival of Janmashtami.

  • I have visited a lot of places around the world. Traveling is fun to me and its very interesting to me. Looking to learn more history about countries with their cultures trying new things around their culture their past because if you wanna look at the future of somthing look at the past.  Lets start out with my favorite place my homeland Bosnia. I went there so far 4 times in my life 2000 , 2005 , 2008 and 2010. The reason I visit there is too see my Grandmother’s and Grandfather’s grave. I see all my family around it and visit my camp. We cook our amazing lamb that we put lots of salt on it so its really salty. I love visiting my other Grandfather and Grandmother's house where we make more awesome food like our beef sausage and our special pumpkin pie and we have to make it together or we would break the tradition. We love visiting around the country and around Europe to. We love seeing the capital which is Sarajevo , all Churches around the city the major canals around the city which you can ride in a fairy in the canal. After we visit going around the city and the canal we go out of the city and go off to the sea and see the water parks and roller coasters and a lot of fun.

  • Good temple on a very narrow road. Too much crowd inside.Keep valuables safely.One have to go by walk(around 15 min)from main road.Huge monkeys are there and they will snatch spectacles,mobile,bags any time ,any moment.Be cautious.I have the experience, one monkey snatched my spectacle,that too when I was just entering the car(during visit I kept it in the pocket).

  • Very old and famous Krishna temples. Situated in crowded area and has to be reached by walk. Krishna statue is very beautiful and very peaceful to watch. There is no queue to reach inside the temple so it becomes very crowded. No place to keep shoes and slippers so leave them to the shops outside the temple.

  • Such a beautiful experience after visiting the most beautiful and joyful temple of india.. Where only rare blessed to visit at this historical place.. For me it is my one of the wonderful destination to know the existence of god

  • Do remember when the temple will be opening there might be a gigantic crowd spread ...... But Don't worry let them go First... Entrance keen to be small but as you go inside there will be a big hall Don't worry and Don't Hurry. Don't dare to take photos inside the temple hall over they have unpredictable nature.
