One of the most revered early modern Hindu temples in Vrindavan, the Radha Raman Temple, is situated about two kilometres from the Vrindavan Railway Station. It is devoted to Lord Krishna, who is regarded as Radha Raman, or someone who offers Radha pleasure.
The Shaligram deity of Radharani, who is the self-manifested god from Shaligram Shila and has a mysterious smile on his face, is also said to be present in the temple with the original Shaligram deity of Krishna. The samadhi of Gopal Bhatta is also part of the Radha Raman temple complex and is situated exactly adjacent to Radha Raman’s place of appearance.
Among the seven temples built by Thakur of Vrindavan, Radha Raman Temple is regarded as one of the most important. It is significant, especially to Gaudiya Vaishnavism adherents.
The temple was exquisitely constructed when it was built in 1542, but Shah Behari Lallji later rebuilt it in 1826. Despite being named after Radha and devoted to her, the temple does not contain a statue of Radha Rani. This is an intriguing detail about the temple. Only a crown is retained by Krishna to indicate her presence.
