How To Reach Shri Bankey Bihari Mandir Vrindavan
Recently I visited the Bankey Bihari Temple in Vrindavan with my family. The temple is situated on the Bihari Ji Parikrama Marg in the Goda Vihar area of Vrindavan town. The way to Bankey Bihari Temple is through the narrow streets (Kunj Galiyaan) of Vrindavan.
These streets often get too crowded so take good care of yourself and try to avoid visiting the temple during the festive season as there is too much rush during festivals. Also, beware of monkeys during your trip to Vrindavan.
