About Banke Bihari Temple

The temple is named after Banke Bihari, where Lord Krishna assumes the tribhanga pose. Lord Krishna here is worshipped as a child, and the temple bells are never rung for fear that it may wake up the sleeping child God. The temple is reached via winding narrow streets. Shops selling lassi, butter and religious paraphernalia flank the route. The idol housed in the sanctum of the temple remains covered by a curtain that the priest opens and close every few minutes throughout the day, so one does not lose consciousness gazing at the brilliant eyes of Banke Bihari.
