Ranganath mandir main entrance. Built in 1851, this temple, also famously called Thiru Vadamathura, is dedicated to sri Ranganatha (lord Vishnu in his sheshashayi pose). It's a majestic amalgamation between south and north Indian architecture and style, it has a tall six storeys gopuram and a gold-plated Dhwaja stambha, 15 metres high. A water tank and a beautiful garden are found within the enclosure.
Worship method : in this temple, non-hindus can only enter till the courtyard and non-indians can enter only till the first two gateways.

Vrindavan is a major Hindu pilgrimage site situated at an average elevation of 170 metres. Due to the urbanization, the forests have been whittled away to only few remaining spots. Rare peacocks are left in the city where as monkeys and stray cows can be seen almost everywhere. As of 2011 census, the temple town had a population of 63,005. Critiques are welcome.
