Seva Kunj - Review
According to belief, Seva Kunj is the forest where Lord Krishna used to rendezvous with his eternal love Radha. The term 'seva' means 'to serve', and it is said that Krishna served Radha selflessly at this very place, and till date the two continue to meet here each night. There is also a small temple dedicated to the lovers, and every evening it is decorated and provided with all the needed items for the meeting of the two. The walls of the temple are adorned with beautiful paintings of Radha-Krishna's stories. This is a place where you will definitely feel at peace with yourself.

Seva Kunj, Vrindavan Reviews
Swami Hit Harivansh Ji, in 1590 discovered this spot. According to his realization it is here that Shri Radha Krishna every night performs Rass along with Sakhis. Since then followers of his sampraday maintain this sacred site and offer daily pooja seva to the presiding deity. It is a depiction of peace and serenity. The walls of the kunj have marbled tiles, engraved with the verses from Radhasudhanidhi. With stunted evergreen bushes which are regarded to be the sakhis of 'Sriji' in the legends and scriptures, its uniqueness lies in maintaining the time distance for visitors as it is believed that till today 'Sriji' resides there with 'Sakhis'-friends and perform "Raas"(holy dance) at night
Visit to vrindavan is incomplete without a visit to seva kunj. Temple timings are linked to radha vallabh temple timings. Mangla aarti is a must at 5.30 am. Still believed that nobody stays at this kunj after evenings. Even the animals like monkeys move away from this place in the night and return in the morning. Adequate arrangement have been made to tackle monkey menace by placing protective mesh around the entire parikrama marg. Visitors are more safe here than nidhi van.
Place is surrounded by a lot of forest basils. Monkeys are local goons here. Never ever mess with them. If you do any monkey act in front of them then only Lord Krishna can save you!! 😁✌
Nice Hindu temple and tourist place ....Seva Kunj, also known as Nikunj Van (forest), is located in Vrindavan. Vrindavan is a city which goes synonymous with the life of Lord Krishna. It is a town in Mathura district where according to Mahabharata, Lord Krishna spent his childhood. It is one of the most important Hindu pilgrim point. The place is known as Seva Kunj because Lord Krishna used to do seva (selfless service) of Radha and helped her get ready for Raas Leela .
Due to its spiritual significance. Lord Krishna pressed Radha'feet when she got tired.
