  History of Vrindavan, Mathura India

Vrindavan was a place where Lord Krishna spent his youth, romancing with Gopikas of the place. Lord Krishna is a symbolic of conjugal love on earth that also rare to be found. Krishna has set a norm that out ruled all the discriminations in Hindu Society. It is irony that is never acceptable in Hindu Society even if God did so. The place is mentioned in many of Ancient Hindu Scriptures. It was a center of attraction in Kushana Period and other mighty kingdoms of ancient India.

Later the place lost attraction in cultural transformation after Muslim invasions in India. It had little importance in Sultanate Periods but came into prominence after Bhakti Movement when many of Vaishnavite Saints emerged from the place who taught a path of Devotion to common folk. Some of these prominent Bhakti Saints were Surdas, MeeraBai and Chaitnaya Mahaprabhu.

In present times Vrindavan has become a major Hindu Pilgrimage and attracts millions of pilgrims every year.

Yet it is worth mentioning that serenity of Vrindavan is losing to the extensive commercial pilgrimages and tourism. The place is losing the atmosphere of divinity that has captured during Akbar the Great. The beauty of River Yamuna has faded and needs to be restored.
