About Banke Bihari Temple

Banke Bihari Temple is a Hindu temple situated in the town of Vrindavan, Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh, dedicated to Lord Krishna. Here ‘Banke’ means bent and ‘Bihari’ refers to Vihari. The temple was constructed in 1864 A.D. In this temple, the principal deity stands in the ‘tribhanga’ posture, which is tilted at three angles. Hence, Lord Krishna, who is bent in three places, got the name “Banke”. Originally, this same idol of Lord Krishna was worshipped at Nidhivan and called “Kunj-Bihari” which means ‘the one who enjoys kunj or groves of Vrindavan’.
