6 Mysteries of Nidhivan – A place where Lord Krishna dances at night
India is a land of unusual tales and stories since ages.
This divine performance is said to take place among Krishna, Radha and his Gopikas in Nidhivan, one of the most mysterious temple in Vrindavan, Lord Krishna’s birthplace.
The mystery behind this temple is associated with Ras Leela of Lord Krishna! It is believed that after the sacred process of Arti, the temple periphery is restricted to every kind of species. This is because Lord Krishna appears here during the night to perform Ras Leela with Radha and his other gopis
Legend says that, anybody who remains at night in the temple would either become visually impaired or would lose their hearing ability. So anybody, who would dare to do this act of remaining in the temple wouldn’t be alive the next morning to disclose this spiritual secret of Nidhivan.
Inside the Rang Mahal, the priest of the temple keeps two toothbrushes, a saree, bangles, paan leaves, some holy water in the jug with four sweets (Laddoo) and ready bed everyday after aarti in the night. But in the morning, everything is seen scattered which adds to the mystery in this area. Even the monkeys that stay in Nidhivan leave the area after Arti!
The trees in Nidhivan are very short and intertwined to each other. What makes them so unusual is their shape. Naturally, the branches of a tree grow upwards but here in Nidhivan, they tend to grow downwards.
However, over a period of time, with advancement of education and technology people have developed different opinions for the place where many locals and visitors believe that its just some gimmick by local Trusts and Pandits to mint money and increase the tourist footfall.
While this debate remains open, whats your take on this belief? If you are visiting Vrindavan, do visit this place, but don’t forget to leave the place after Arti.
