Sri Ranganathaji Temple....Vrindavan is a town in the Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh, India. This South Indian style temple (as a replica of Srivilliputhur) was built by the wealthy Seth Radha Krishna and Seth Govindadasa of Chennai (Madras) in 1851 and is dedicated to Sri Ranganatha (Lord Vishnu). Also worshiped here is Lakshmi, the consort of Lord Vishnu. There are many side temples including ones dedicated to the Alwars (Tamil Nadu Vaishnava saints), Sesa-sayi Ananta Sayanam with Lord Vishnu reclining on him, and Tirupati Balaji. This temple has a traditional South Indian gopuram (gateway), a Rajput-styled (architectural style prevailing in the present Indian state of Rajasthan) entrance gate. One of the enclosures within the precincts of this magnificent temple has a 18-meter-high Dhwajasthambha made of gold. It is one of Vrindavan's largest temples and is surrounded by high walls. The outer wall is 231m (770 ft) by 132m (440 ft). This wall encloses a nice tank and garden. Once a year there is a grand car festival (Ratha Yatra) known as Brahmotsava during the month of Chaitra (March-April).
