The cradle of Krishna Lila


After bath at any one of the ghats, pilgrims proceed straight to Dwarakadish temple first. It is the principal shine and it was built in 1814, by seth Gokul Das, who served the prince of Gwalior as cashier. The idol of Sri Krishna about 3 feet in height is installed on a raised dias. It is quite alluring. The North Indian adornment, adding colour and grace, cast a spell on the devotees. One peculiar feature observed here is that bhaktas, in addition to uttering the Lord's name loudly, throw coins of all denominations into the enclosure, when the screen is drawn aside where priests stand. The priests are Goswamis of kakrauli and are enjoying hereditary rights. They conduct prayer services with a zeal and sincerity that deserves emulation. Vallabha Sampradaya is followed in all the activities. The festivals, like the Jhoola and Janmastami are celebrated every year with great pomp and show, anal they attract lakhs of bhaktas, who participate in them with great gusto.
