We started from Jaipur at 10.30 morning for our devotional trip to Mathura, Vrindavan & Goverdhan Parikrama by taxi. Reached Mathura Vrindavan at 4.30pm and visited:
1. Vaishno Devi Mandir
2. Prem Mandir
3. ISKON temple
4. Bankhe Bihari mandir
5. Niti Van
At around 8pm, we proceeded to Goverdhan (20-30km). Entered Sri Radheshyam Seva Sadan at 9pm, took some rest and started Parikrama at 12 midnight. It was really interesting in the beginning. 21km stretch walking is not an easy task, you know. All of us tired and took rest whenever required, especially children. All facilities were available along the roadside (water, tea, cool drinks, logistics, etc).
Still walking bhai… last two kilometers were horrible, you know, totally tired…each and every members, even a single step means big achievement for each of us. At 7.30, we crossed 21 kms and had darshan at goverdhan temple. Checked out from Seva Sadan at 10.45am, proceeded to Mathura. Temple closing time was 12noon, but we managed to get a darshan with the help of a Guide. Drove to another 15km away from there…. Nand Gaav. Barsana is 5 km away from Nand Gaav. Day was so hot there. We all were tired, not visited Barsana.
Finished all our target places and started at 2pm to drive back to Jaipur and reaching by 7.30pm.
