This is the place where Shri Krishna Himself crowned Shri Radha as the king of Vrindavan, and Himself accepted the humble position of a Gatekeeper of Shri Radha Rani’s palace. This Lila of the Divine Couple is mentioned elaborately in ‘Bhakti Ratnakar’. Some temples in Vrindavan celebrate this lila on the last day of the ‘Jhulanotsava’, by decorating the deities as the King and a Kotwal.
Omrai is one of the long lost forgotten ancient ‘Lila sthali’ of Shri Krishna and His Divine Consort Shri Radha. A new temple has been built to commemorate the ‘Rai Raja’ lila of the Divine Couple.
