Sri Rangji Temple or Rangnath ji Temple is one of the largest and the only temple built in Dravidian style in Vrindavan.

Vrindavan has always been the centre of faith and devotion because of its association with Lord Krishna and Radha Rani. This devotion has been the driving force behind the construction of temples throughout history.

Built in 1851, by Seth Govind Das ji and Seth RadhaKrishna ji under the guidance of Shri Rangdeshik Swami ji, Shri Rang ji Temple is dedicated to Lord Shri Goda - Rangamannar. Goda or Andal was a famous 8th century Vaishnava saint who had composed “Thiruppavai” which is a set of Tamil devotional religious hymns.

History and Architecture of Shri Rangji Temple

As per the belief, Goda devi had fasted and prayed to attain Lord Rangamannar or Lord Vishnu. Lord Rangamannar or Lord Ranganatha who is none other than Lord Krishna fulfilled her wish by becoming her bridegroom. In the temple, Lord Ranganatha is worshipped as the bridegroom with a walking stick with Andal on his right.

Shri Ranganath ji temple is inspired from Ranganathswamy temple at Srirangam in Tamil nadu. It mesmerises you with an amalgamation of South Indian and North Indian traditions and influences.
