Located on the banks of Yamuna River, Vrindavan is famous as one of the most significant spots for the devotees of Lord Krishna. It is said that Lord Krishna had spent his adolescence in this city. The name of the city has been gotten from vrinda (which means basil) and van (which means forest), which refer to the two little forests at Seva Kunj and Nidhivan. Both culturally and religiously affluent, the city boasts a lot of Lord Krishna and Radha temples, the most popular ones being ISKCON Temple and Banke Bihari Temple. These temples are set in the midst of the thick woods and lavish greenery of Vrindavan. The city is also widely popular for its unique and vivacious celebration of Holi.
