Banke Bhihari Temple

Banke Bihari temple is among the best known places in Vrindavan( Mathura). It is holiest temple in Vrindavan is just a 2-hour drive from Delhi, off NH 2 to Agra.

Banke Bhihari Temple Krishna Banke Bihari ji appeared in this deity form for Swami Haridas, a Saraswat Brahmin devotee who performed Raga seva as his sadhna or devotion for Sri Radha Krishna in Nidhivan, Vrindavan. Tansen, Akbar's court musician was Swami Haridas's disciple in classical Indian music.

Haridas ji was greatest saint as well as musician in Nidhivan, Vrindavan. He was born in year 1478 at Haridaspur near Aligarh. Haridasji was born in Saraswat Brahmin Family. His father’s name was shri Ashudhir and mother’s name was Gangadevi.

In Nidhivan he searched the playground and forum of Radha Krishna Raas Leela. He Saw Radha Krishna in a Single image and Looks like heavenly sight. The two merging with each other Radha and Krishna created ocean of Ragas that is ‘Shri Bihariji’. The couple turned itself into one single black charming idol, the same one that you see in the temple today.

The attraction and beauty of Shri Banke Bihariji is the only reason why the ‘darshan’ in the temple is never continuous and stoped by curtain drawn on him regularly. It is also said that if one watch long enough into the eyes of Shri Banke Bihariji, the person would be unconsciousness by Power of heavenly Looks .
