Banke-Bihari Temple

Banke-Bihari Temple

One of the most important and vibrant temples in Vrindavan is the Bankey Bihari Temple. The Bankey Bihari Temple houses a sacred image of Lord Krishna known as Thakkur Ji, which shows Krishna with an almost blackened body. Devotees enter the shrine room carrying garlands of flower petals and offer them to the spirit of the statue as Brahmins (priests) move back and forth in front of the icon, occasionally drawing across the curtain to shroud the icon for a moment. The curtain is then drawn back and a great cry of Thakkur Ji! issues forth from the crowd. The main hall and the sanctum sanctorum of this temple are decorated with floral carvings.
