"Varsana - The capital of King Vrishabhanu"

"Varsana - The capital of King Vrishabhanu"

Varsana is where Srimati Radharani lived and had many past times with Krishna. It is 42 km from Mathura and has a 7 km parikrama path around it. There are four peaks that make up Varsana Maan Garh, Mor Kuti, Vilas Garh and Dan Garh and each one of these peaks is a head of Lord Brahma. Lord Brahma wanted to do some personal service for Radha and Krishna, so he incarnated himself as these hills.
.
On top of one these hills is the Larily Lal Temple (Sriji Temple), the temple of the beloved, which is where the original Radha-Krishna Deities of Varsana reside. The Deities in this temple were installed by Vajranabha. There are colorful pictures on the walls and ceiling, depicting the loving pastimes of Radha and Krishna. This temple is an important place to visit.
.
At Pila Pokhar Srimati Radharani washed Her hands. Because of Her touch, the kund turned a golden-yellow color. Pila means "yellow." This kund is still a golden-yellow color.
