Iskcon Temple in Vrindavan, India

On our way back to Delhi from seeing Taj Mahal, and visting Mathura we also visited Vrindavan. Before going to the Krishna Temple in Vrindavan, we visited the Iskcon temple which is on the way. The temple was unbelievable. Attached are some pictures. May Lord Krishna Bless one and all.

    Recently we visited Vrindavan with family in a cab. As we were new to the area and also do not know Hindi we engaged a guide who called on us near the temple.He made us walk in the narrow lanes for more than half an hour and took us to a garden where Lord Krishna said to have spent times with Radha.He stopped us in every nook and corner and narrated the significance attached to the place. Then we were taken inside a temple the entry of which was closed by curtain.He introduced us to a priest who was sitting near the temple.He told us that it is the prime temple of Krishna and urged us to donate for various activities. He was very fluent in Hindi and had natural attraction because of his color and robes. My son and daughter-in law could understand Hindi to some extent. We did yield to his force and yet donated five hundred only to the temple. He opened the screen and we worshiped the deities. Some how we were not impressed by the sight and felt it was not the original temple. We could not visit the old YasodaKrishna temple due to big crowd. we returned to Delhi after seeing Tajmahal. From this experience we learnt that before visiting any pilgrimage centers we should gather full details about the area or we should undertake travels in the tours conducted by the reputed operators.There is a nexus between the so called guides and fake temples and people are waiting every where to extract money from the new pilgrims..

      I completely agree with you. The people at various places we visited try to cheat you all the way, which was really disappointing. The Brindavan temple is very crowded, and you have to walk several kilometers to visit this temple. Too much crowd, I was just happy we returned safe after seeing the temple. People were pushing us from all directions.
