Bhatrod Bihari ji Temple, Mathura, Uttar Pradesh

Further continuing ‘Braj Chaurasi Kos Yatra’ next day we reach Bhatrod Bihari ji temple. It is 4 km approx. from Vrindavan situated on top of a small hill. Few steps and we reach temple. Picturesque location all around and I saw peacock. It is always pleasure to watch the same. Always colorful.

History of the temple? – We inquire from the priest.

As per Bhagwat dasam skanda third chapter Lord Krishna was grazing cows as this very location and felt hunger. Few sages of Mathura were present performing Yagya. Krishna requested for food but was not provided by them. But the wife of sage offered Lord Krishna boiled rice to eat. Since that day the location is named as Bhatrod Bihari ji.

Dahi Bhaat ( curd-rice ), Kadhi Bhaat they say was offered to Lord Krishna. The location around temple is also known as Ashok Van ( jungle ).
