As the name suggests “Prem Mandir” is the statue of true love of “Lord Krishna & Radha”. I believe it is one of the finest temples of India in terms of architecture and construction. One must not miss to visit this temple whenever at “Vrindavan”. All the idols of Radh-Krishna seems talking and at the entrance of the temple there is one place where Lord Krishna’s very big statue is moving electrically on Kaalia Naag. This is one of the best places to visit at Vrindavan.

Govinda Dev Temple

Govinda Dev Temple was a grand seven-story structure, with an altar of marble, silver and gold. Architecturally this temple is one of the finest in North India. A sculptured lotus flower weighing several tons decorates the main hall ceiling. It was built in 1590 by Raja Man Singh from Jaipur, a general in Akbar’s army, who was inspired to do it after meeting Rupa Gosvami. It was said to have cost ten million rupees and several thousand men were working for five full years to complete it. Akbar himself had donated the red sandstone for its construction. In 1670, during the rule of a later Mughal king, Aurangzeb, it was plundered and destroyed leaving only three stories of the original temple. During this attack, when few stories remained, all of a sudden the ground began to shake violently and Aurangzeb’s men were terrified and ran for their lives, never to return.

Temple is now empty and the replica of Govindaji is worshiped in the new Govindaji Mandir (located behind the original temple). The original Govindaji is worshiped in Jaipur.
