Close up of the beautiful gate
Shri Nidhi Van
The inside gates of this leela Bhoomi
Nidhi van-Leela Bhumi of the Divine
Complete view of this small Van
In the winters , this place looks dry
A pathway through the bushes
The Divine KrishnRadha are believed to take rest in this van even today
There are divine shaktis which yet do visit this bhumi from time to time. You just have to concentrate on the picture and FEEL it inside. It is miraculous
The sacredness of this bhoomi can be felt if one enters with pure bhao and shraddha;
Wonderful vibrations are to be felt, if the mind can be quietened
The ruj is yet purer than other places in this land. The lata-pata is considered to be sacred too
Sacredness in every corner
Sitting here with pure bhao opens us to some pavitra vibrations
The Prakatya Sthal of Banke Bihari
Radha Ranis “Shringar Ghar”-Rang Mahal.
Radha Ranis “Shringar Ghar”-Rang Mahal
Mandir dedicated to Shrimati Radha Rani, as “Banshi Chor”
The Vishaka sakhi Kund at Nidhivan
The wonderful vibrations can be yet felt
Monkeys are in abundance here, in fact you are advised by the guides to keep a tight hold on belongings. These monkeys leave the place once it gets dark; nothing living stays inside the parisar
Peace and quiet
The sacredness of this bhumi can be felt if one enters with pure bhao and shraddha;There are yet some Divine Shaktis which visit here from time to time
A greener view of this sacred place
In the monsoons months, it becomes very green and fresh here. It sort of changes the look from the dry which you saw in the earlier pictures to a bright green
In spite of destruction, some divinity remains
Divine urjas live here
Pathway across the van. One has to be super careful of the monkeys. I have lost a few possessions to them in some of my visits here
Look how close the housing has come; someone please do something to preserve whatever is left of the divya place
An evening view of this mystical place
View of the samadhi-notice the small birds in the bushes!
Sacredness of the Lata-Pata(Flora)
The sacred ‘Ruj’-Sand of the holy Dham is seen here, unlike many places which have lost it to the progress and greed of some humans
Divine Urjas and vibrations all merged in nature. Very very mysterious
View of a side entrance gate which is usually shut

Pictures on Vraj Mandal:
In this sacred kunj, the divine ShreeRadha and ShreeKrishn sometimes rest after performing the raas-lila dance. There is a small mandir which is the Shringar-ghar of Shreemati Radharani, called Rang – Mahal, where a bed is kept for them to rest. It is also here that ShreeKrishn decorates Radharani.
Another mandir is here; called Banke Bihari Pragatya Sthali; the divine murti of Bankey Bihari Appeared from this place.
There is another mandir here called the Bansi Chor Radharani, which shows Her playing Shree Krishn’s flute; Her two close sakhis, Lalita and Vishaka stand here with Her.
You can also see the sacred kund which is known as Vishaka’s Kund.
Swami Haridas did bhajan here; his samadhi is here.
Swami Haridas, who was no other than Lalita Sakhi of the inner consortium of the Lord, constantly and continuously meditated on the Nitya Ras and Nitya Bihar of Lord at Nitya Vrindavan. His way of sadhna was to compose and sing songs in the praise of Lord.
While on earth, living in a mortal state, he maintained his regular participation in the Nitya Bihar and always enjoyed the pleasure of closeness of Lord. He chose a secluded and dense forest area in Nidhivan as his gateway to the Nitya Bihar and was mostly sitting there, singing, meditating and surfing in the ocean of eternal bliss.
The image of Banke-Bihari was discovered in Nidhi Vana by Swami Haridas the great Krishn devotee, belonging to the Nimbark sampradaya.
Nidhivan is a center of love and the bhakts who come there have the belief that Krishn still appears there in the night. The plants and trees which you see in the garden are the Gopis who love Krishna and in daytime they are in the form of trees but in the night they become the Gopis and dance with Krishn and Radha.
