  • Tiny temple in the heart of Vrindavan. It's not at all prominent there, but nice. It's on one of the busiest roads in Vrindavan.  more »

  • The view of the temple at the time of evening yamuna aarti is very worthy, head turning and fabulous.
  • The story behind the temple is millennia old, but the temple itself is new, at least in relative terms. Built in 1627, the Jugal Kishore Temple is currently one of the oldest surviving temples in Vrindavan. The Mughal Emperor Akbar visited Vrindavan sometime in 1570 CE, giving permission to build four temples. The Jugal Kishore Temple was one of the approved temples constructed by the Gaudiya Vaishnavas. Located by the famed Keshi Ghat at the lower end of Vrindavan, the temple was eventually built by Sambat. It was completed in 1684, during the reign of the next Mughal Emperor, Jehangir. Like the other three ancient temples ordered by Akbar, this one too is made of red sandstone, with a rather large 25 square foot choir and a main entrance to the east. Unlike the other three temples, though, the Jugal Kishore Temple still has its original deity intact inside
