The land of Krishna

BRAJ also known as Brij, is a region of Utter Pradesh in India, comprising the twin cities of Mathura and Vrindavan. It is not just a sacred land where lord Krishna was born and performed his cosmic leelas, but also a place of divine reminisces. The entire region together is most aptly christened Brajbhumi meaning the land of Lord Krishna―Braj being one of the names for Lord Krishna and Bhumi translating as sacred land. Embodied in a culturally ethereal spirit of the Lord, Brajbhumi forms a pilgrimage halo with temple cities like Mathura, Vrindavan, Govardhan, Gokul, Barsana under its vibrant folds. These remarkable towns and villages unveil the captivating areas where Lord Krishna grazed his cattle, killed demons and played his melodious flute attracting milkmaids whom he bullied for butter. It was here that he ultimately found Radha his inseparable companion.

Jai Shri Krishna

History of Braj

Braj has its origin back to 5000 years. With the arrival of lord Krishna about 5000 years ago this cultural heritage started and endlessly continued through the medieval historic period of Shung, Maurya, Kushana when Mathura the capital city of Braj was completely influenced by the Buddhists culture. The sacred land of Braj also went through the invasions and destructions by the Mughal ruler Aurangzeb. Between 11th and 15th century, for around 800 years the region was under the rule of the Muslim rulers from Delhi. The whole region including Mathura and Vrindavan has the impressions of this rule which tried to suppress the Hindu culture. During 16th century, with the spread of bhakti movement in India the Saints Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu from Bengal and Vallabhacharya began the rediscovery of Braj through bhakti movement and thus along with their followers, recovered and reinstalled the deities (which were hidden in the kunds fearing the destruction from Muslim rulers between 11th and 15th century) in the temples.
