Meerabai Temple is one of the most sacred places in Mathura and is situated just off the road in a narrow street near Nidhivan at Vrindavan. It is a place where one can feel unconditional faith and love for the Lord Krishna.

This temple is the embodiment of Saint Meerabai’s belief and trust in Lord Krishna’s bhakti!!

Meerabai Temple is dedicated to Saint Meerabai who was an ardent devotee of Lord Krishna. The principal deity of this temple is Lord Krishna who is worshipped in the form of a ‘Shaligram Shila’, supposed to be the one worshipped by Meerabai herself.

History of Meerabai Temple

As per the legends, Saint Meerabai stayed at this very place while she was in Vrindavan from 1524 to 1539, after which she left for Dwarka where she merged into Lord Krishna’s idol at the RanChod Temple.

This temple was constructed by Rajdiwan of Bikaner, Thakur Ram Narain Bhatti in 1842 (Hindu Calendar : Vikram Samvat 1898) and has been taken care of by the descendants of the same family who hosted Meerabai way back in the 15th century.

Things to do at the Meerabai Temple

The temple is very simple in terms of architecture with Rajasthani influence. People come here to experience devotion, love and spirituality. Here devotees can feel Meerabai and Lord Krishna in their hearts. You can indulge in various activities:

1. Nidhi Van: You can visit Nidhi Van which is approximately 450 m from Meerabai Temple. It is regarded as one of the most important sites dedicated to the pastimes of Lord Krishna and Radha Rani. As per the popular belief, Nidhi Van still witnesses Raas Leela of Shri Krishna and Radha Rani along with the gopis during night time and therefore, no one is allowed to stay within the premises at night.

2. Shah Ji Temple: On your visit to Meerabai Temple, you must check out Shah Ji temple which was built by a wealthy merchant Shah Kundan in 1876. This white colored temple showcases artistic workmanship, one of the fascinating architectural features of the temple are 15 feet high spiral pillars. The principal deity of the temple is Lord Krishna and Radha ji, fondly called “Chote Radha Raman '' owing to their petite appearance.

3. Tranquil Surroundings: Once you enter the blue and white courtyard of the Meerabai temple, you would be taken to the world filled with love, devotion, compassion and surrender. This modest yet serene building offers you peace of mind where one can spend some time in solitude.
