Marvel of South Indian Architecture

A beautiful amalgam of North and South Indian architecture, Rangji Temple is beautiful beyond words. Be prepared to walk a lot inside. Footwear is left outside the main premises. Though Vrindavan swarms with monkeys, this temple has very few wandering around. I felt relatively safe here Dedicated to Lord Vishnu, the temple also houses, Ram, Sita and other forms of the deity. If you hire a guide to tour you around, they explain the history of each structure, leaving you asking for more. Its is huge complex with a baoli, chariot, multiple shrines, old age home and alleys inside. The most prominent among them is the golden pillar in the middle of the temple. A strange sense of calm engulfed my mind when I sat across the black Vishnu Idol. I noticed the extravagant carvings on all pilaars and ceilings. All artifacts would just amaze you. Every year, a grand chariot festival (Ratha yatra) is organized during March-April for 10 days. It is popularly known as Brajmotsava. Washroom and food stalls are outside the temple.

South Indian style huge temple

I must admit to begin with that I am partial to this temple. I must visit it every time I am in Vrindavan. The huge complex, the beautiful idols, periodical palaki yatra of the idols, museums, and its captivating history (engaging a guide for the visit strongly recommended) are its eternal charms.Entry to the temple is free though a small fee is payable for visiting the museums.

A nice, huge, neat and clean temple of South Indian architecture style having a tall and huge Entrance Gate. There is also a temple of Hanuman outside main temple and in front of Temple Gate.
