Seva Kunj

About

Sewa Kunj also known as Nikunj Van is a van (forest); it has a mandir for Shree RadhaKrishn. It is believed that RadhaKrishn visit here every night. The nij mandir is decorated for them and all necessary items placed here for the night. This small mandir is decorated with all leelas painted on the walls which are very pretty.

This sacred place is known as Sewa Kunj because it is believed Shree Krishn did sewa for Shreemati Radharani here. This leela is depicted in paintings which show Shree Krishn combing Radharani’s hair, helping her get ready for the Raas Leela.

Some paintings also show Radhavihariji massaging Radharani’s charan when she gets tired during the Raas leela. These paintings are a depiction from the shloks found in the sacred Hindu scriptures.

The short trees as you will notice in the picture gallery always grow towards the ground, meaning that they always stand bowing to the Divine couple. Though in the day this place is flooded with monkeys, as soon as it nears evening they all leave the place empty; no living being stays in the area which is shut totally for the night.

There is a Kund here known as Lalita Kund. Here are some pictures from my many visits to the divine Sewa Kunj – Nikunj Van at Vrindavan Dham. I do hope you enjoy going through them.
