    There are many temples in Brindavan. We were able to visit only few important temples. Here main deity is Radha Krishna in all temples. Some places Lord Krishna is known by different name other than Krishna.

  2. Purana Kaliya Ghat:

    This is the place where Lord Krishna took control of Kaliyan (poisonous snake) which was troubling living being around.

    There is a small sanctum we see here for kaliya and Krishna.

    There is the tree known as Kadamba Vrukshamin this place. They say Krishna jumped on the head of Kaliya from this tree.

  4. Imlithala:

    The place is popularly known as “Siddha peet ImliThala”

    Main Deity here is Sree Radha and Krishna.

    There is a Tamarind tree here in this place. We see a board which says the tree is 5500 years old. Lord Krishna sat under the tree alone and used to think of Radha, and used to repeat her name as japa. Hence the place is popularly known as “Siddha peet ImliThala”

  5. Seva kunj:

    This is the place where Lord Krishna used to play with Gopika’s in the evenings. They believe Lord Krishna comes here in the evening daily. They do not allow anyone in the evening.
