Vrindavan, the ‘Leela Kshetra’ of Sri Krishna, is not just a place that exists on the pages of Jaidev’s Geet Govinda or simply in the minds of millions of Krishna bhakts. It is a place that exists right there beside the Yamuna, the river across which Vasudeva carried Krishna to Gokul and where Krishna subdued the serpent Kaliya.
So seamlessly does history blend with mythology in Vrindavan, that at times it becomes impossible to separate one from the other. The enthralling aartis on the banks of Yamuna and the Hare Krishna chants in thousands of temples will transport anyone back in time when the Lord played His flute and walked through the streets of this small town.
While on one hand, living in Vrindavan means experiencing a fragment of history, modern developments make it a place that is easy to reach and has all the amenities necessary for a comfortable stay. It is a transition city that is gearing up to welcome Krishna devotees from all over the world and offer them an experience they will treasure forever.
