Recently an announcement was made that Vrindavan’s historic Jaipur Mandir will be developed as a tourist destination. The minister of Rajasthan Devasthan department, Mr. Rajkumar Rinwan was the one to make this announcement. He was on a three day visit to Vrindavan to celebrate Shri Radha Madhav Ji’s 100th patotsav. The upgrades to the temple will consist of landscaping throughout the complex, benches and fountains made of Rajasthani stone, permanent lighting in all parts of the temple, drinking water and toilet facilities.
There will also be a small shopping centre that will showcase the unique handicrafts of Rajasthan. Devotees visiting the temple will also have the opportunity to learn about the culture of Rajasthan along with receiving the Lord’s blessing and darshan. The government of Rajasthan has allocated 30 lakh rupees for this project. Sunil Makkad, the commissioner of the Rajasthan Devasthan Vibhag informed that the department will submit the proposal to the state government within a week.
The plan is being prepared and will be brought into action in collaboration with the Public Works Department.
This Friday, the 2nd of June, marks the beginning of the Acharya Shrivastava Goswami Maharaj’s seva at the Shri Radharaman Temple in Vrindavan. Maharajji is a senior Acharya of Radharaman Temple and the founding trustee of the Vrindavan daily, Vrindavan Today. This year the seva will be held from 2nd June to 5th July. This year is also special because it marks the 475th anniversary of Shri Radharamanji’s appearance.
Each morning of the seva period, a complete reading of the Shrimas Bhagavatam will be performed by 40 scholars. 10 Bengali vaishnavs will also be present who will be reading the Chaitanya Bhagavat. In addition to this, the auspicious prayers of Gopal Sahasranam and Narayan Kavach will also be chanted. Each jhanki or darsha of Shri Radharamanji will be accompanied by the appropriate music and songs describing Radharamanji’s lila at that moment.
The daily raag seva will be brought to life by the master vocalist Shri Tarun Krishna Das and pankhwaj virtuoso Shri Krishna Gopal Sharma. Each morning and evening there will be a special guest artist who will present an offering of song and dance for Radharamanji. A ceremony called Rajopachar Seva will be offered twice a day during Shringar Aarti and Sandhya Aarti during which the devotees will hold flags and other sacred symbols.
Throughout the seva period Radharamanji will wear gorgeous new outfits specially handcrafted by the ladies of the Shrivastava Goswami household and new jewellery will be offered to Him as well. New tapestries have also been ordered from the royal printer of Jaipur. Each day Radharamanji will be offered a new kunj or a beautiful forest hideaway.

Do not be misled by the title of this blog. We at Krishna Bhumi fully acknowledge the fact that the twin cities of Mathura and Vrindavan have always been tourist hubs! The issue that this blog addresses is the fact that, were these two cities always self sufficient tourist hubs? Alas, the answer is no. However, things are changing and changing for the better in the cities of Mathura and Vrindavan. Mathura has gained a heritage city status and Vrindavan has become a transition city! With this, the government both at the state level and the centre level are doing everything they can to develop these two cities.
The kunds in both the cities are being restored, public facilities and amenities like public toilets, parks and parking spaces are being focused upon. Bridges are being built and roads are being paved towards a better future. Along with this Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir, under construction as of yet, is set to make its debut as the tallest Krishna temple in the world in Vrindavan. Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir, the global monument, and Krishna Bhumi, the global township situated at the feet of the temple, are all set to add to this upcoming tourist hub status of Mathura and Vrindavan.
As bookings are open for apartments in Krishna Bhumi right now, you too can be a part of this exciting change. In case you want more specifics about the township and the apartments, you can talk to our sales representatives on 969696 8899. You can also visit our website at www.krishnabhumi.in. The easiest thing to do however, would be to just follow our Facebook page as the page is regularly updated with information about the project and about Vrindavan itself.
Vrindavan has always been a religious city with a spiritual pull. But gone are the days when Vrindavan was a city dependent on other cities for survival. With the brand new badge of a transition city in place, Vrindavan is all set to become a global city now. Why is this so you ask? Well the primary reason is that Vrindavan is getting the world’s tallest Krishna temple to mark its horizon very soon. The Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir, which is under construction right now, will be 710 ft tall upon completion and will truly make Vrindavan a global city.
Added to this, Infinity is building a township at the feet of the temple. This township is Krishna Bhumi, which is being touted as the ‘Temple Township’. Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir being a global monument, this makes Krishna Bhumi the global township. Needless to say that the people residing in Krishna Bhumi will also be regarded not only as Indians, but global Indians. Krishna Bhumi, apart from being situated at the feet of a skyscraper temple, has many other attributes that set it apart and make it a global township. A unique township at its core, Krishna Bhumi manages to bring the glory of the Dwapar Yug and the facilities and amenities of a modern day lifestyle together.
Imagine living in a township that will have its very own 12 recreated forests of Vrindavan, a Krishna leela theme park and a magnificent and grand temple! Apart from this, all facilities and amenities needed to lead a modern day lifestyle are present. A wellness club, a spa and ayurveda centre, 24 hour surveillance and security, doctors and nurses on call, you name it and Krishna Bhumi has it. A convenience store, an ATM, a Laundromat, everything is present in the township to make your life easier.
So come be a part of this grand township and this spiritually enlightening life. Be a part of Krishna Bhumi! Call 969696 8899 to talk to our sales representatives and get to know more about this amazing project. You can also check out our website at www.krishnabhumi.in .
Dwapar Yug was a golden age in which Krishna lived in Vrindavan and laughed and frolicked and performed various leelas with Radha and other gopinis. It is true that Dwapar Yug has gone by and Lord Krishna is no longer physically here. But being a resident at Krishna Bhumi means that you can relive and rediscover the Krishna Era once again. This is because living in Krishna Bhumi means living in the vicinity of the iconic Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir, a skyscraper temple envisioned and commissioned by the devotees of ISKCON Bengaluru.
The Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir is a massive affair; the temple itself occupies 5 acres of land. Apart from that there are 12 recreated forests of Vrindavan and an outdoor theme park surrounding it. Inside the temple there are separate wings dedicated to different temples, a cosmology exhibit and Krishna scholar’s study centre. At the top of the temple is perched the viewing gallery. Outside the temple there is a Krishna leela theme park that houses a moat with boat rides and other rides and an amphitheatre. Last but not the least, there is dwadasha kanana or the 12 recreated forests of Vrindavan.
Each forest is replete with statuettes that depict the specific leelas that Krishna had performed in these forests. With all of this in the picture, when you enter Krishna Bhumi, you will feel like you have entered the era of Krishna or Dwapar Yug once again. So come live at Krishna Bhumi, in a range of studio, 1, 2 & 3 BHK apartments and rediscover and relive the era of Krishna once again. Visit us on www.krishnabhumi.in for more details.
