Pillar made of gold Rangaji Temple Vrindavan

Sri Ranganatha (Rangaji) Temple. It is 30 meters high with three gopurams (gateways), a tall shikhara (crown) and gold-plated decorations. This South Indian style temple was built by the wealthy Seth family of Mathura in 1851 and is dedicated to Lord Sri Ranganatha or Rangaji, a form of Lord Vishnu lying down on the Sesa Naga (divine serpent).

One of the enclosures within the precincts of this magnificent temple has a 15-meter-high pillar made of gold. It is one of Vrindavan’s largest temples and is surrounded by high walls.

The temple was built in south indian style . It is different from other Vrindaban Temples. We liked the golden pillar ( 40 kg gold, about 30/40 ft height) just at the entrance of the temple . The architectural structors are also excellent. The temple is of Lord Rangantha. The pond inside is huge and very well maintained.

    Lovely…. I have been to Vrindavan as a child but do not remember seeing this temple. Visiting the Ranganathaswamy Temple in Srirangam has also been a lifelong wish…. ๐Ÿ™‚
