  • 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.
  • Historic place to visit. Back door black entry available for people willing to dish out 100 rupees per person. Only advantage of this entry is you will get to stand in front during 'Darshan'.
  • A widely renowned temple of Lord Krishna. The ambience inside can get chaotic and true to Indian style ,there is much pushing among the throngs of people on busy days The deity however looks on peacefully and is adorned so beautifully . Blissful
  • Spiritual place worth Visiting.. People believe visiting here can make their wishes come true..but it is very crowdy temple.. Avoid going during occasions..
  • Ancient mandir. Very nice place . But Township is very dirty. Don't go bare foot.

Where to stay in Vrindavan

As a place of Hindu pilgrimage, Vrindavan offers plenty of accommodations for its visitors, with a good range of options to suit different tastes and budgets. In the more spacious outskirts to the west, upmarket hotels lie on the Bhaktivedanta Swami Marg road and side streets. Follow the same thoroughfare into town to find many smaller lodging options in the busy, densely populated center. Here, guesthouses and simple hotels put you within easy reach of the main temples.
