Darshan will be open for two hours in the morning and evening
Shri Radha Damodar Mandir opens September 18; others will follow suit
Vrindavan, 2020-09-09 (VT): Vrindavan’s Thakur Shri Radha Damodar Mandir will reopen after the five-and-a-half month lockdown on September 18. The decision was taken during a meeting that was held on Monday between the sevayats of different temples. Other Saptadevalayas and temples are expected to follow suit.
In Mathura, Shri Krishna Janmsthan and Dwarkadhish Mandir have been open for quite some time now. Other temples in Govardhanand Barsana started darshan on September 1 (Anant Chaturdashi). With the most auspicious Purushottam Maas beginning on September 18, it was reckoned that devotees should not be kept away from their Thakur anymore.
Shri Radha Damodar Mandir is one of the Sapta Devalayas of Vrindavan where the sacred Govardhan Shila blesses people with the fruits of doing Govardhan Parikrama by circumambulating it only four times. The temple is nearly 450 years old. Darshan will be open for two hours in the morning and evening
