Hello Guys, Are you looking forward to visit Prem Mandir in Vrindavan. If your answer is “YES”, be rest assured that I would guide you through the history of the temple.


I got a chance to visit Prem Mandir and I was mesmerized by the beauty of the Temple. The temple was established by Jagadguru Kripalu ji Maharaj and is now maintained by Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat, a non-profitable charitable trust. The foundation stone of the temple was laid in Jan of 2012 and the construction was completed in 2012 and the construction cost was around 150 crore Rupees ($23 million USD).

It is made from Italian marble and is spread over 54 acre land. It took 1000 artists to build the splendid Prem Mandir, Vrindavan. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shri Krishna.

There is also a public canteen in the premises where one can enjoy eating pure vegetarian food.

Some important things while your visit to the Prem Mandir:
