The holy city of Vrindavan is amongst the oldest cities built on the banks of Yamuna River. The city derives its name from the Sanskrit word ‘Vrinda’, which refers to a holy basil grove, that is said to have been located in the city. It is also one of the most revered pilgrimage sites for devotees of the Hindu God, Krishna. According to mythology, Vrindavan was the childhood home of Lord Krishna. The city is therefore dotted with hundreds of temples that are dedicated to him and Goddess Radha. The most prominent of these temples are Banke Bihari Temple and ISCKON Temple. The city is said to encapsulate the playful spirit of Lord Krishna with its customs and traditions. Vrindavan sees heavy foot traffic from tourists and pilgrims every year.
