Bhakth Shiromani Shri Meerabai temple, Vrindavan was the last visit during Braj Chaurasi Kos Yatra as health was not that good because of hectic schedule for the last six days – two more days but sorry I am unable to continue.

If you are planning Braj Chaurasi Kos Yatra please remember the best months will be November, December, January, February, March. You can hire your own private vehicle from Vrindavan. The charges for 24 hours private four wheel vehicle is around Rs. 3000 – 3500 for 24 hours. Even for mini-bus the price is same. Regarding accommodation there are numerous budget accommodation available within Vrindavan starting from Rs. 200 per night. Regarding food there is one very good restaurant that serves very good homemade breakfast, lunch, dinner and specially Rajasthani food at Krishna Kutir, near Narayan Ashram, Raman Reti. And Yes, there are numerous organizers organizing such Yatra but yes, the one I did was organized by dear friend Ram Krishna. I again from the bottom of heart want to say: Thank you Thank you Thank you. And Yes, not to forget – Thanks to all devotees as well as friendly drivers of the vehicles. Without all of you the tour was not possible.
You know what I am missing is Holi at Barsana. The best – They say.
Anyways, do not forget to carry own water bottles, fruits during tour.
The journey continues…
