Vraj Bhoomi:

Sri Krishna The Vraj Bhoomi (or Braj Bhoomi) is considered to be the land of Sri Krishna. Sri Krishna took birth (incarnated) in this land, played His various divine plays including the famous Rasa Leela and made this land sacred. Vraj Bhoomi encompasses the sacred places of Mathura and Vrindavana as its core where the river Yamuna flows. The forests of Vrindavana (with cows and cowherds) and the river Yamuna are very intimately connected with Sri Krishna and His Vraja Bhoomi and has defined the sacred geography of Bharatavarsha.

Nathdwara:

Nathdwara Srinathji Nathdwara Srinathji Temple - Famous pilgrimage of Srinathji: Nathdwara is an important pilgrimage associated with Mahaprabhu Vallabhacharya of Pusti Marga. The black marble idol of Srinathji is that of a 7-year old infant. Nathdwara is located in the Aravalli Hills on the banks of river Banas. According to legend, a cow in Govardhan Hill used to pour her milk on a particular spot everyday. The villagers discovered an idol of Krishna there, and this happened around the same time when Mahaprabhu Vallabhacharya was born in Champaran in 1479. Srinathji was initially installed in the Jatipura village in Govardhan. The temple construction began later but was vandalised by Sikandar Lodi. After Lodi's death, Srinathji was again brought back and the temple rebuilt. Around 1670 when Aurangzeb attacked Mathura Vrindavana, the idol of Srinathji was moved to Agra, and subsequently to Kota, Pushkar, Jodhpur and finally Mewar. At Mewar, it was kept under the protection of Rana Raj Singh. Srinathji was finally installed in Sinhad in around 1671, which is the present Nathdwara.

- Festivals: Annakoot festival on the day after Diwali is celebrated for a week here. Gopashtami during Karthik Shukla Paksha (Oct-Nov).

- Nathdwara is located in the Rajsamand district of Rajasthan.
