Krishna lived here from the age of eight to sixteen. Nanda Maharaja built his house on top of the large hill to protect Krishna from the demons King Kamsa sent to kill him. The Nandagram Temple is on top of the hill. There are two black marble Deities of Krishna and Balarama in this temple. On the side altar there is a Siva-linga called Nandeswar, who is said to have been installed by Vajranabha.
