Seva Kunj, Vrindavan Reviews
Religious and Historical place. However due to menace of Monkeys it is somewhat dirty... And one has to be careful...
"This place is also called Nikuñjavana. It lies just near the temple of Śrī Rādhā-Dāmodara, to the south-west. A painting of Śrīmatī Rādhikā with Śrī Kṛṣṇa massaging Her feet is worshipped here in a small temple. The Vrajavāsīs say that even today Śrī Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa Yugala perform Their pastimes here every night. Everyone therefore leaves this kuñja at dusk. Even the impudent monkeys independently leave this kuñja as the evening falls. From time to time it happens that someone stubbornly tries to remain here during the night, and in the morning is found dead. Others have by some means escaped death, but have become completely insane. Bhakta Rasakhāna searched for Kṛṣṇa all over Vraja but without success. Finally, he had darśana of rasika Śrī Kṛṣṇa at this very place. He has revealed this in his beautiful poetry as follows: dekhyo duryo vah kuñj kuṭīr meṁ baiṭhyo paloṭat rādhikā pāyan “Standing in the doorway of the kuñja, I watch Kṛṣṇa as He sits massaging Rādhikā’s feet submissively.” [The word paloṭa here indicates that Kṛṣṇa is massaging in the mood, “I will not go to Candrāvalī’s kuñja again.”] In Sevā-kuñja, we also find Lalitā-kuṇḍa. When Lalitā was feeling thirsty during rāsa, Kṛṣṇa manifested this beautiful kuṇḍa by digging it with His flute. Lalitā and the sakhīs drank the kuṇḍa’s sweet, cool water and refreshed themselves. There is a keli-kadamba tree nearby whose every knot bulges out and resembles a round śālagrāma." Excerpt from the book 'Sri Vraja-mandal Parikrama' by Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja
