The Gateway to Vaikuntha opens in the holy land of Vrindavan

Hundreds of devotees stepped through the Vaikuntha Dwar in the Rangaji Mandir in Vrindavan. The Vaikuntha Dwar, resembling the gateway to Vaikunth, the abode of Lord Vishnu, opens once in a year on the occasion of Vaikuntha Ekadashi. On this day the Vaikunth Dwar is kept open for the spiritual aspirants who want to please Lord Vishnu. It is believed that on this day if you step through the Vaikunth Dwar, then you attain the affection of Lord Vishnu.

Devotees thronged the temple from early in the morning to catch a glimpse of their Lord stepping out of the Vaikunth Dwar. The day was celebrated with great pomp and grandeur in the city of Vrindavan. Thakur Ranganathji stepped out from his sanctum sanctorum using the Vaikuntha Dwar and gave darshan to the devotees. A special ceremony was performed in which the deity was placed on a palanquin and carried around the temple.

Banke Bihari Temple attracted the most crowd and the number of visitors record for the past several years was broken. The other temples were crowded as well. Temples like Shri Krishna Janmasthan and Dwarkadheesh Mandir of Mathura along with Radha Rani Mandir in Barsana, Nand Bhavan in Nanadgaon and temples in Gokul were also overflowing with people.

Many people also came to Vraja to perform the Giriraj Parikrama in Govardhan. The people present in Vrindavan wanted to begin the first day of the New Year with the lordships of Vrindavan, hence they gathered at the Saptadevalaya temples of Radha Raman, Radha Shyam Sundar and Radha Damodar for the Mangala Aarti that takes place before sunrise.

Several cultural events were also organized on the 31st and the 1st. Chaitanya Sampradayacharya Acharya Shri Venu Gopal Goswami sang melodious bhajans at Bhramar Ghat and Shri Radha Raman Mandir. The devotees who were in the audience became ecstatic and started dancing. A devotee also donated a silver alter to Radha Rani at the Radha Rani Mandir in Barsana.

All about the Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir

Envisioned by the devotees of ISKCON Bengaluru, The Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir is going to a religious and architectural masterpiece that India will be proud of. Not to mention that it is going to change the face of the rapidly developing town of Vrindavan. When this marvel will be completed, it will stand at 700 ft, making it the tallest Krishna temple in the world. It will be so tall, that it will dwarf many wonders of the world like the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt and the Taj Mahal in India itself. This iconic temple will span 5 acres of land and will be a grand affair.

It will house the grand temple hall with the Shri Radha Vrindavan Chandra Mandir, the Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu Mandir and the Srila Prabhupada Mandir in three different wings. This alone should give you an idea of how grand the temple is going to be. It will also feature a Krishna heritage museum, a study centre, a festival and lecture hall and a viewing gallery which will be perched at the very top of the temple, at 700 ft. Added attractions will include a Vedic cosmology centre, a massive indoor Krishna Leela Theme Park and boat rides both indoors and outdoors.

Everyone is aware of the 12 famous vanas or forests of Vrindavan, like the Madhuvan and Nidhivan. These vanas will also be recreated for people to walk through and get transported to the era in which Krishna lived and frolicked in these forests. These 12 forests together will be known as the Dvadasha Kanana. Apart from this, The Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir is also built in such a way that is resistant to all abrasive forces of nature. It is a modern architectural marvel devoted to Krishna and his ardent followers.
