About Vrivdavan:-On this earth, the place known as Vrndavan in the district of Mathura, ninety miles southeast of Delhi, is a replica of that supreme Goloka Vrndavana in the spiritual sky. In all of India, that eighty-four-square-mile tract of land is considered to be the most sacred place of pilgrimage because Krishna sported in it, and many devotees still linger there in ecstasy in search of Krishna and His childhood associates. Srila Prabhupada has explained that "It is not that such devotees meet Krishna face to face in that tract of land, but a devotee's eagerly searching after Krishna is as good as his seeing Him personally. How this is so cannot be explained, but it is factually realized by those who are pure devotees of the Lord." Because Krishna, His name, form, pastimes and remembrance are all on the absolute plane, to search for Him at Vrindavan in pure God consciousness gives more pleasure to the devotee than seeing Him face to face." The Brahma-samhita (5.38) confirms that those devotees whose eyes are anointed with the pulp of love always see the eternal form of Shyamasundar within their hearts.
In Vrndavana the effulgent ground is fashioned with many very wonderful colourful cintamani jewels, the trees and vines are full of blissful spiritual fruits and flowers, the birds make a great tumult by reciting the hymns of the Sama Veda, and the lakes and streams are filled with transcendental nectar. May my heart meditate on Vrndavana in this way.

Krishna's Playground - Vrindavan :-Located in the state of Uttar Pradesh in the Mathura district, Vrindavan is a very beautiful town which lies in the Braj region and is also famous as Vraj. It is widely believed that Lord Krishna spent his childhood here and performed acts along with young ladies or Gopis at this place.The town is located at a distance of just 10 Kms from Mathura, Lord Krishna's birthplace.
Vrindavan Travel Guide is incomplete without a mention of its rich heritage. The town hosts hundreds of temples dedicated to Radha and Lord Krishna and is considered as a very sacred place by a number of religions such as Gaudiya Vaishnavism, Hinduism and Vaishnavism. The name 'Vrindavan' has been derived from the term 'Vrinda', which is similar to Tulsi plant that grows generously throughout the length and breadth of the city. It is said that few years ago, the entire surroundings were a Tulsi coppice. It is widely believed that in the 16th century Vrindavan was “rediscovered” by Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu went to Vrindavan in 1515 to discover the vanished holy places connected with Lord Krishna. He roamed through the diverse sacred forests of Vrindavan and with his divine saintly power; he located all the holy places associated with Sri Krishna.
