Radha Govinda Mandir and alleys
This area is directly in front of Sri Radha Govinda Mandir. Here we have a huge amount of trash dumped hap hazardly all over the area and requires a great deal of cleaning. Renovations would help control the trash.
In 1670 the Muslim emperor Aurangzeb saw the ghi-lamp burning on top of the beautiful seven-storied temple of Shri Govindaji in Vrindavana over 36 miles away from his capital Agra, and in his envious mood he ordered the destruction of all the temples in Vrindavan. The Hindus who were working at the court, forewarned the authorities in Vrindavan who had the deities of Shri Shri Radha-Govinda, Shri Shri Radha-Madan Mohan, Shri Shri Radha.Gopinath, Shri Radha Vinod, Shri Shri Radha Damodar and Vrindadevi removed. Vrindadevi refused to go any further from Kamavan, but the other deities were sent to Jaipur into the care of Maharaj Man Singh. Man Singh gave Shri Radha-Madan Mohan into the care of his son-in-law the Maharaj of Karoli where He still remains. Replicas of the deities are found in Radhakund and Kamavan. Shri Shri Radha-Govinda deities are very beautiful, especially at Mangal Arotik, when Shri Govindaji wears a simple loincloth only (in the summer).
This was one night of trash.
