About Radha Kund and Shyama Kund

Holy places are meant to purify the consciousness of an individual. Any place can turn sacred by the presence of the Lord and his pure devotees. Legend has it; Radha Kund is the holy ground where Lord Krishna killed the mighty demon, Arishta, who came in the form of a bull, sent by the unscrupulous Kans. These two sacred lakes have great religious significance. Thousands of devotees come here to take a dip in the holy water and light lamps to wash off their sins and get blessed by the Lord. A festival in its own right, the sacred bath traditionally takes place at midnight and is a moment of great significance for the devotees.

Historical Context: Legend has it; Radha Kund is the holy ground where Lord Krishna killed the mighty demon, Arishta who came in the form of a bull, sent by the unscrupulous Kans.
