Celebrations at main Temples in Vrindavan
Although there are around 5000 temples in Vrindavan but the main temples are Banke Bihari Temple, Rangnathji Temple, Shri krishna Balram Temple, Radharaman Temple, ISKCON Temple etc. These temples have an itenarary for the entire day, with timings fixed for various ceremonies and poojas all day long. Darshans are open for devotees even during Abhishek (holy bath) of lord Krishna.

According to legend Lord Krishna was born in Mathura but he spent a long time in Vrindavan, where he performed rasleelas with his beloved Gopis more than 5000 years ago. A famous folklore associated with the place is that Lord Krishna till date ascends to perform rasleela with the gopis.(cowgirls or milkmaids) The place becomes alive during Janmashtami with rasleelas being performed in the premises during the daytime.

Millions of pilgrims come to see it and get darshan in the 5000 temples there.
