What to do in Vrindavan?

If you are visiting Vrindavan for the first time then you have landed at the right place. After entering the city, the first thing is to remove your specs and learn to say “Radhey Radhey”. Beginning the day early around 4:30 and visiting the temples for artis will turn your stressful mind into a peaceful state. After attending the artis the next step is to have breakfast around the street. Some of the must-have dishes for breakfast are Aloo Kachori and Raita, fresh Dhokla, Puri Bhaji, lassi and aloo tikki. Not limiting the food variety to this but adding the most surprising part to the menu is that most varieties of the food served will be without onion and garlic.



After having breakfast, it’s time to chant mantras and pray to god. After praying one can rest for some time and take a nap. Here we spend half of our day and proceed to lunch. Vrindavan has the power to cater to devotion in the minds of visitors, so in the evening it’s again time to remember and pray to god. The nights are for having dinner, walking and sleeping.
