Birthplace of Lord Krishna, Vrindavan attracts millions of tourists from India & worldwide alike. The Banke Bihari temple is a historic temple where hundreds if not thousands of people visit daily. The peace of mind one receives in the renowned Iskon Temple is an experience in itself. But, today, I’m going to present a different & rather a new perspective to the town through my Vrindavan photography.
It is a small town where people don’t greet you with Hi, Hello or even ‘Namastey’ in Hindi, rather they say ‘Radhe Radhe’ which means Hare Krishna!! You’ll be surprised that even the rickshaw pullers or people on road don’t say excuse me, they will say ‘Radhe Radhe’. Vrindavan is also known for its Holi festival, and the neighboring town –Mathura also celebrates Holi with full zest. So, plan your trip to Vrindavan during March, check out the dates beforehand and you can witness the most colorful festival of the country.
Vrindavan is an old town with narrow alleys and a religious atmosphere. There are many temples in the city and while temple hopping I spotted something unique.

Doors of Vrindavan
Surprisingly, some of the doors were not only beautiful but intricated and colorful too. That said, I am showcasing my Vrindavan photography today through their doors.
The Intricate Doors
Isn’t it wonderful how we manage to perceive charming things in old towns and narrow alleys which urban areas cannot to offer?
This one below is a simple maroon colored door with a splash of blue color on the surrounding wall. The gorgeous tiles surrounding the entrances make it off my favorites.

The Colorful Doors
Where we went in those lanes, I also took pictures of the gorgeous doors I encountered. As it is an old town and mainly I would quote – “unfledged” with homes in really bad shape. I still found a few doors though damaged ones but they developed nice pictures 🙂
The Ravaged Doors
Time leaves it imprints and it was evident in some of the homes. Some of the ones I stumbled upon were deteriorated yet photogenic.
