About Banke Bihari Temple, Vrindavan

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.

Banke Bihari Temple, Vrindavan Reviews

  • Not a very godly place. Too many beggars, touts and godly agents at and around the temples. Funny that they charge you 100 Rupees for Darshan Fee if you need to get a better look at the Idol! Too cramped up and the priests were yelling at the visitors! The lady announcing that no one can take pictures was super rude too... Monkey menace around the place unchecked.... no security, no parking! BUT - i guess everything goes in God’s name - so you may have a very spiritual experience, i was dumbfounded on how devotion was turned into business....

  • The temple has been hacked by priests there. The loot is at its peak now in the temple than 10 years earlier. You are treated as slave if you are not bribing the priests there. Common man has no basic rights in this country now.

  • Divine place of lord krishna if you want to understand or feel the devotion you must visit this Place. But only consider Lord Krishna not priest nor staff and other person. You only see Lord and thair devotees . Best option just close your eye's and feel the Divine.

  • Very soothing and divine place. Good to visit during working days. Full moon days it's heavily packed. Parking is not very well managed. E-rickshaws are very useful on small roads.

  • Jai Shri Krishna!🙏 There is a high need of crisis management situation at the temple. Otherwise may God be with the people. It was a stamped like situation on the 31st December when I visited.
