Find out what things to keep in mind when visiting Vrindavan.

Whether you believe in religion or not, a few spiritual and cultural destinations are so rich that people from different faiths of life become attracted to them. One such destination is the Braj region of Uttar Pradesh. Having spent a significant part of my childhood in Mathura-Vrindavan, where Krishna spent his childhood, I felt a deep personal connection. This spring, after decades, I decided to return to Braj. I invite you to join me on a unique journey through the sacred streets of Vrindavan, where my childhood memories came alive with spirituality. In this article, I’ll share how I explored the heart of Vrindavan in just three days, discovering hidden gems and timeless charm that resonated with the soul. From majestic temples to vibrant markets, every corner had a story to tell. In Vrindavan, the labyrinthine lanes are not just a mish-mash of tiny lanes but a place where history and mythology blend to create a magical atmosphere of reverence and wonder. Let’s explore the best Vrindavan places together, from the iconic ISKCON Temple to the serene Seva Kunj, and discover the unique things to do in Vrindavan in 3 days. But first, let’s talk about the timing of my trip.

Why did I choose to visit Vrindavan around Holi?

While the Braj region is packed with visitors throughout the year, it becomes extra busy during Holi – the festival of colours. As Holi approaches, photographers from around the world congregate here to capture the unique Holi traditions of Vrindavan, Gokul, Nandgaon and Barsana ki Lathmaar Holi. It’s a spectacle like no other, where the air is filled with laughter, and the streets come alive with the hues of joy and celebration. The weather, too, adds to the festive atmosphere, with its pleasantness inviting exploration. So, I timed my Vrindavan trip to coincide with Holi, a decision that filled me with anticipation and excitement.

But beyond the colourful festivities, Vrindavan offered a unique perspective into the soul of India—a land where spirituality permeates every aspect of life. Thanks to my local hosts and dosts at Vrindavan Heritage Tower (more about them later in the post), I was able to delve deeper into our heritage and culture, gaining insights that are rarely known. This unique journey allowed me to see Vrindavan in a new light, and I’m excited to share these discoveries with you. 

The icing on the cake was trying out Braj’s delicious food (more about that later in the post).

So, without further ado, join me for three days to uncover the ancient land’s hidden treasures and sacred traditions and learn the unique things to do in Vrindavan in 3 days. 

My Vrindavan 3 days Itinerary:

Day 1 Morning – Arriving in Vrindavan from Delhi

To save time and traffic, we started off from South Delhi early, around 7 am. The drive from Delhi to Vrindavan was smooth, with no traffic jams. Despite taking a half-hour break at Gulshan Dhaba, we reached Vrindavan by 10 am. Thanks to the Delhi to Agra highway via Faridabad, which was in prime condition with no bottlenecks.

Since we had booked our stay at the Vrindavan Heritage Tower, we didn’t even have to go through the city’s bumper-to-bumper traffic jam. The complex is conveniently located on Bhaktivedanta Swami Marg, which makes it ideal for travellers like us who have limited time.

As I entered the 62-acre complex, I was pleasantly surprised by its cleanliness and scale. Passing through the main temple on my left and Akshay Patra Foundation on my right, we reached the residential facility where we had booked a two-bedroom duplex villa. The villa had a calm and soothing environment with ample parking, sunlight, an open-air balcony, and a porch. There was basic furniture for a family to stay comfortable, such as double beds, a chair table, clean towels, and a tea coffee maker with respective pouches. All the rooms were airconditioned and had hot-and-cold bath service. I was told that these villas are bought mainly by families who wish to make Vrindavan their home and want to stay in a pious environment of Krishna Bhakti, and many times when they are away, they give these villas to the complex whenever they have outside, guests. 

Day 1 afternoon – Immersing in the Divine Grandeur of Vrindavan Heritage Tower

After a quick freshening up, we were ready to explore the divine grandeur of Vrindavan Heritage Tower. There, I met a 32-year-old extraordinary woman called Ritika, who worked at Vrindavan Heritage Tower, but what impressed me the most was her divine aura reflected through her personality, words, and actions. She had such a beautiful smile and personality that she could infuse life even in a rock and could make a non-believer a believer of Krishna Bhakti. Despite staying in bigger cities such as Mumbai, Pune, and Jaipur, Ritika chose Vrindavan as her abode because of her deep connection with Krishna. She truly loves what she does, and that’s why she is brilliant at her job. She is solely responsible for making our trip a memorable trip. Another person worth mentioning is Toshika. She ensured we were well taken care of and enjoyed our trip to Vrindavan to the max. 

We started our Vrindavan exploration trip by walking through the Vrindavan Heritage Complex, where Ritika shared essential information about the grand temple complex being built. Frankly, before visiting the complex, I had no idea about the significance of this architectural marvel, which is destined to become the tallest cultural heritage monument globally. Within half an hour of my discussion with Ritika, I got an answer: “What is the 700 crore temple in Vrindavan?” and why is it so special?

Also known as the Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir, the complex under construction in Vrindavan, India, is set to become the world’s tallest religious monument. Planned by ISKCON Bangalore, the temple’s estimated cost of ₹700 crore makes it one of the most expensive temples globally. I looked in awe at the temple’s foundation, which is said to be deeper than the height of Burj Khalifa, with a height of about 700 feet (210 meters) consisting of 70 floors. Starting in 2016, this monumental project is expected to be completed within 5-6 years. The south wing of the temple was officially inaugurated in 2024. 

As we entered the Grand Temple hall in South Wing, our eardrums started reverberating with the sound of melodious Krishna bhajans, and we saw a miniature of the complex on the left-hand side. Seeing my eyes light up with curiosity, Ritika explained the thought behind the construction of Vrindavan Heritage Tower, 

The reason why the Hare Krishna Movement decided to construct the Vrindavan Heritage Tower project in Vrindavan is primarily to facilitate the regional development of the Braj region by leveraging its cultural heritage. Not only will the complex promote the Krishna philosophy, but it will also act as a driver in creating a vibrant cultural economy and bring about inclusive development of the local community.

She took us through the complex, explaining everything patiently and in detail. I especially loved the afternoon at Aarti and Swami Prabhupada’s office. 

Witnessing the Raj Bhog Aarti, a divine ritual steeped in reverence and devotion, left an indelible mark on my soul. The harmonious blend of chants and incense filled the air with an aura of spirituality, transporting me to a realm where divinity danced amidst mortals.

After the aarti, it was time to relish the Raj Bhog prasadam, specially prepared for the Raj Bhog Aarti. We were lucky to taste it. It was delicious and quite filling. While enjoying our prasadam, we were introduced to the wonder kid – Nirvi. With beautiful big eyes, hare Krishna tulsi tilak on her forehead and a smile that can melt anyone’s heart, she is a modern-day avatar of Radha. She is charming, bubbly, and, above all, brilliant for her age. I haven’t seen a kid so intelligent and dedicated to Krishna Bhakti. You could ask her anything, and she would have an answer for it. Her innocence and cuteness won our hearts.

After lunch and a quick power nap, we explored the temple grounds, akin to traversing a sacred sanctuary, each corner steeped in divine significance. Following this spiritual immersion, I was privileged to visit the mega Akshaya Patra Kitchen, where selfless volunteers prepared nutritious meals for the underprivileged. The organisation feeds 1,16,642 children of 2,032 Government schools, anganwadis, and thousands of widows and sadhus through the Akshaya Patra program. The tour opened my eyes to the professionalism and cleanliness by which the whole program is handled efficiently. The sight of compassion and service in action underscored the essence of humanity’s collective responsibility towards each other.

Akshay Patra Foundation provides nutritious meals to children studying in government schools and government-aided schools.

After Akshay Patra, it was time to visit the Gaushala, where over 300 cows, calves, and bulls were lovingly cared for, reaffirming the sacred bond between man and animal in the heart of Vrindavan. 

Day 1 Evening – Exploring the hidden gems of Vrindavan

Gauging my interest in offbeat and hidden gems, Ritika surprised me by taking me to the historical sites of Jait Kund and Garuda Govind Mandir, where I learned about the rich tapestry of legends and myths woven into the fabric of the land. Both these places are hidden gems in Vrindavan. They are popular among locals, but travellers aren’t very aware of them.

As dusk descended, I retreated to the Krishnamrit restaurant in Vrindavan Heritage Tower, savouring the flavours of satvik cuisine. The sumptuous thali prasadam had one sabji, daal, rice, chapati and a sweet. My last meal was served with love and devotion, providing a fitting conclusion to a day filled with spiritual revelations and cultural immersion.

Day 2 Morning – Rawal, Dauji, Raman Reti, Brahmand Ghat & Ukhal Bandhan

After the first day of exploring the 62-acre haven, it was time to explore some offbeat and hidden gems of the Braj region. Our day started early, and my first destination was Rawal, the hallowed birthplace of Srimati Radharani. Rawal is the only place in the world where Shrimati Radha Rani is worshipped in her Lalan (child) Swarup. 

Standing amidst the tranquil surroundings, I felt a profound connection to the divine energy that permeated the air, enveloping me in grace and tranquillity. Ritika and Nirvi passionately explained the legend of how Radha Rani was incarnated in a holy atmosphere at Nikunj on the banks of Yamuna. Shri Vrishbhanu Maharaj and his wife Kirtida struggled to have a baby. On the 8th day of Bhadramas (Aug-Sept), Vrishbhanu Maharaj took a bath in Yamuna as usual. He noticed a golden lotus flower shining brilliantly in the middle of the river. In the centre of the lotus was baby Srimati Radharani. I spent approximately an hour taking in the divine energy of the temple.

From there, I made my way to the 5000-year-old Baldeo-Dauji Maharaj Mandir, a temple dedicated to the revered elder brother of Lord Krishna. The walking path from car parking to the temple was tightly hugged by colourful local snack shops, souvenir shops, and temple offering shops on both sides. As I entered the temple premise, the ancient walls echoed with the chants of devotees, their voices rising in homage to the divine presence that resided within.

On our way out from the temple, we couldn’t resist the waft of the freshly made sabji-kacchori, samosa and other local Vrindavan delicacies. We rounded off the breakfast with a glass full of lassi.

Next on my itinerary was Raman Reti, the sacred sands where Lord Krishna once frolicked with his friends. This temple is famous for phoolwali Holi, where devotees play Holi with flowers. Since only a week was left for Holi, they had started playing with gulal. The main hall was echoing with the Krishna bhajans, music and dances. They were no strangers. Only gulal covered the bhakts of Krishna. From the main hall, we exited the playgrounds where Krishna used to play with his friends. From young to old, rich to power, male to female, everyone had become a kid here. Throwing sand on each other and rolling in it. Even I couldn’t stop myself. It was an experience that’s hard to explain in words.

The playful laughter of families and the rustle of leaves echoed the timeless bond between the divine and the mortal, reminding me of the eternal play of creation.

As the day unfolded, I found myself drawn to the banks of Brahmand Ghat, where Lord Krishna once revealed the universe in his mouth to Mother Yashoda. This place is also famous for serving mitti wala laddoo (clay sweet), which Lord Krishna used to eat as a kid. The sacred waters of the Yamuna shimmered with divine light, reflecting the cosmic dance of creation and destruction.

My journey culminated with a visit to Ukhal Bandhan, where Mother Yashoda lovingly tied Lord Krishna with a Ukhal (mortar and pestle), symbolising the eternal bond between mother and child. As I stood amidst the ancient trees, I felt a sense of peace and harmony wash over me, a reminder of the timeless love and devotion that defines the essence of Vrindavan. Small in size but grand in its historical relevance, it is definitely one of the hidden places to visit in Vrindavan.

Day 2 Evening – Yamuna Aarti and Radha Raman Temple

In the evening, we decided to visit the heart of Vrindavan, which is uber popular with tourists. Narrow alleys and too many vehicle movements make it a traffic bottleneck. Thus, to avoid getting stuck in a traffic jam, we hired a Vikram (Tuk-Tuk) instead of taking our big car. 

Our first stop was Keshi Ghat, the last standing ghat in Vrindavan, where we attended the enchanting evening of Yamuna Aarti. Keshi Ghat, the last standing ghat in Vrindavan, is steeped in history and mythology. This holy spot is known for stories of Lord Krishna’s bravery. According to legend, Krishna conquered the powerful horse demon Keshi at this very place. While there are a lot of activities to do here, like boating and bathing, the star attraction is the evening aarti, which attracts both worshippers and visitors.

Having witnessed aartis in Varanasi and Rishikesh, Keshi Ghat aarti was a very different experience that was devoid of any dhakka-mukki (jostling and elbowing). Instead, there was ample space for visitors to participate in the aarti peacefully, and the melodious chants filled the air. The mesmerising lamps created a genuinely spiritual and enchanting atmosphere. What made this experience even more exciting for visitors was that everyone got to participate in the holy ritual – unlike other places, individual aarti thalis were offered to visitors. A train of hundreds of huge diyas (earthen lamps) floating in River Yamuna made it an exceptional and hypnotising experience. The serenity, the organisation, and the absence of chaos made it an unforgettable experience. Keshighat evening aarti takes place at 6 pm and lasts approximately half an hour. 

After blissful Yamuna aarti, we visited the nearby Radha Raman Temple. The temple is situated near Nidhivan and is considered one of the top seven prominent temples of Vrindavan. The deity Radharaman is almost 500 years old, and Lord Krishna is worshipped as Radha Raman (lover of Radha Rani). Every day in the evening, the temple courtyard is filled with  Folk Songs, Kirtan. When I went there, it was very crowded but wonderful too. It is said the stove in the kitchen at Radha Raman Mandir has been burning since the temple was established 500 years ago.

In the first two days of our trip, we were able to explore quite a lot of unique things to do in Vrindavan in three Days.

Day 3 Morning – Embracing Divine Devotion and Spiritual Serenity

As the last day of my journey dawned, I felt grateful and reverent for the profound experiences and insights I had gained in Vrindavan. With a heart filled with devotion, I prepared to immerse myself once more in the spiritual essence of this sacred land.

The day began with the uplifting yagna within the Vrindavan Heritage Tower complex, a sacred ritual that filled my heart with divine grace and reverence. Surrounded by fellow devotees, I felt a sense of unity and oneness that transcended all barriers, a testament to the universal power of love and devotion.

From there, I made my way to the sacred grounds of Radha Damodara Mandir, the spiritual heart of Vrindavan. In the temple, Krishna is worshipped as Damodar with his consort Radha. It is one of the seven main Goswami temples in Vrindavan. The other seven significant temples of Vrindavan include Radha Madan Mohan temple, Radha Gokulnanda temple, Radha Raman temple, Radha Govinda temple, Radha Gopinath temple and Radha Shyamsundar temple.

During Holi, colours blend with culture, creating a spectacle unlike any other. Many devotees visit this temple to do parikrama every day to take blessings. Inside this temple premises are situated the samadhis of various prominent people who contributed exclusively to this temple and Vrindavan and devoted their lives to the lord’s services. After completing the parikrama, I couldn’t stop dancing with other devotees at hare Krishna bhakti bhajans.

Next, I ventured to Seva Kunj, the hallowed grounds where Lord Krishna once performed his divine pastimes with his beloved Radharani and the gopis (female guardians). The serene beauty of the surroundings filled me with a sense of peace and tranquillity as I reflected on the eternal love and devotion that defines the essence of Vrindavan.

Seva Kunj is where Krishna used to play Raas Leela (a holy dance) with Radha and Gopis.

As the day drew to a close, I took a leisurely stroll through Loi Bazar, the bustling marketplace where everyday life’s vibrant colours and sounds mingled with the spiritual energy that permeated the air. Amidst the hustle and bustle of the market, I felt a profound sense of connection to the rich tapestry of life that defines the essence of Vrindavan.

With a heart filled with gratitude and reverence, I bid farewell to this sacred land, carrying the memories and lessons learned during my journey of experiencing unique things to do in Vrindavan in 3 days. Though my time in Vrindavan had ended, the spiritual insights and divine experiences gained will continue to inspire and guide me on my journey through life.

Best places to eat in Vrindavan

No trip to Vrindavan is complete without tasting its local cuisine. And Vrindavan is good in that department.

Although Mathura-Vrindavan has high-end restaurants and hotels serving authentic Braj cuisine, eating from vibrant street food stalls is an absolute joy. Various street shops in front of the temple gates offer reasonably priced food. Some of the best places to visit in Vrindavan for food are:
