About Radha Ramana, Vrindavan
One of the oldest temples in Vrindavan, the Radha Damodar Temple is a reflection of the glory of architecture in ancient India. Built in the year 1524, the temple has seen a fair amount of action too. When the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb invaded the sacred city of Vrindavan and wanted to destroy all the temples and deface all the deities here, the idols of deities of this temple were to move to Jaipur for safe-keeping, and were replaced with replicas. They were returned back to their original place once the danger was over. The temple has been very renowned ever since, and is a must see for those who visit Vrindavan.

Sweet morning and evening aarti. One of the ancient temple of india.
Very Divine Place. it has samadhis of lots of acharayas. Deities are also so beautiful
Very nice deities of Lord Damodara and Sri Vrindavan Chandra. Beware of offences in the Dham. It is Samadhi temple of Sri Jiva Goswami and Srila Rips Goswami. Srila Prabupada stayed here and translated Srimad Bhagavatam meditating on Lotus feet of Srila Rupa Goswami.. It is a centre of Spiritual World. Srila Rupa Goswami personally hand crafted the beautiful deity of Sri Damodara.
A very attractive temple shri radha Damodar in vrindavan.
"This temple is situated within the area of Seva-kunja. Sri Rupa Gosvami used to live here in his bhajana-kuti. The contemporary Gosvamis and devotees assembled here for istagosthis and, in those gatherings of Vaisnavas, Sri Raghunatha Bhatta would elucidate on Srimad-Bhagavatam in his melodious voice. Sri Rupa Gosvami compiled Sri Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu, Ujjvala-nilamani and other sacred texts on bhakti at this place. The young Sri Jiva Gosvami was engaged in all kinds of service to Sri Rupa Goswami, who personally manifested the deity of Sri Radha-Damodara with his own hands and offered the service and worship to Sri Jiva. According to the book Seva-prakatya, Sri Radha-Damodara were installed in samvat 1599 (1543 AD) in the month of Magha (January–February) on Sukla-dasami (the tenth day of the bright half of the month). The original Sri Radha-Damodara are now in Jaipura, and Their pratibhu-vigrahas, which are as potent as the original deities, are in Vrindavan. On the altar with Them are Sri Vrindavan-candra, Sri Chailacikaniya, Sri Radha-Madhava and a few others. The samadhis of Sri Jiva Goswami and Sri Krsnadas Kaviraja Goswami lie behind the temple, and in the northern area of the temple are the samadhi and bhajana-kuti of Sri Rupa Gosvami. Adjacent to this is the samädhi of Sri Bugarbha Gosvami. Sanatana Goswami used to perform parikrama of Govardhana daily. In his old age, when he became incapable of performing parikrama, Krsna came to him as a boy and gave him a govardhana- sila, which was one-and-a-half cubits long and shaped like a banyan leaf. He instructed Sanatana Goswami to perform parikrama of this sila instead. On this sila are imprints of Krsna’s foot, His flute and a cow’s hoof. Sanatana Goswami brought that sila to Vrindavan and would circumambulate it daily. After his disappearance, Sri Jiva Goswami installed the sila in the temple of Sri Radha-Damodara and began to worship it. Darsana of this sila is available on special request." Excerpt from the book 'Sri Vraja-mandal Parikrama' by Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja
