About

A holy place of worship for the Hindus, the Shri Radha Rani Temple is situated in Uttar Pradesh. The shrine dedicates itself to Radha, the Hindu goddess. Shri Laadli Lal (meaning beloved daughter and son), another name for Radha Krishna, are the temple’s principal deities.Trivia: It is also known as Shreeji Temple and Shri Laadli Lal Temple. The temple is present on the top of the Bhanugarh hills. These hills are around 820 feet in height. The Radha Rani temple attracts a large number of worshippers and tourists from all over the world. The main festivals celebrated here are Radhastami and Lathmar Holi. The place is packed with tourists during these festivals. Legends believe that the Radha Rani Temple is 5000 years old. Before King Vajranabh (Krishna’s great-grandson) constructed it, the temple was lying in ruins. Narayan Bhatt was a student of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Raja Veer Singh, in 1675 AD, erected the temple. Later, Narayan Bhatt, with the assistance of Raja Todarmal, one of Akbar’s governors, did the current temple edifice. Interestingly, the temple is also tied with popular mythology. According to the story, Krishna’s father Nanda and Radha’s father Vrishbhanu were good friends. Nanda was in charge of Gokula, and Vrishbhanu was in charge of Rawal. However, fed up with Mathura’s king Kansa’s abuses, both of them and their people relocated to Nandgaon and Barsana.
