Itinerary Details

You will be picked up from your hotel in Delhi for the two and half hour drive to Vrindavan that is situated around 100 miles from Delhi.

Your local guide will meet you in Vrindavan and show you around the town where Krishna spent his childhood. There are over 5 000 temples in Vrindavan. On this tour visit the two most famous temples - the Bankey Bihari Temple and Prem Mandir Temple.

The walls of this ancient style stone temple are covered with intricately carved sculptures of flora, fauna, dancers, musicians and Hindu deities. The temple was constructed on the tenets of traditional Hindu architecture and does not have any ferrous metal.
