Radha Rani birth mandir at Rawal-Vraj Mandal

Shree Radha Rani birth (Pragaty) mandir at Rawal, which is located in Mahavan at Mathura.

राधा रानी का जन्मदिवस या प्रागटिय दिवस, राधाष्टमी के नाम से जाना जाता है। भाद्रपद मास के शुक्ल पक्ष की अष्टमी को रावल और बरसाना में धूमधाम से राधारानी का जन्मदिवस मनाया जाता है।

Rawal is situated 9km (6 miles) south of Mathura, on the other side of the Yamuna River which is about halfway between Mathura and Gokul.

ब्रह्मवैवर्त पुराण के अनुसार, श्री राधा रानी का जन्म उनकी माता के गर्भ से नहीं हुआ है। वह श्रीकृष्ण के जैसे ही अजन्मी हैं। नृग पुत्र राजा सुचन्द्र और पितरों की मानसी कन्या कलावती ने द्वादश वर्षो तक तप करके श्रीब्रह्मा से राधा को पुत्री रूप में प्राप्ति का वरदान मांगा। फलस्वरूप द्वापर में वे राजा वृषभानु और रानी कीर्तिदा के रूप में जन्मे। दोनों पति-पत्नि बने।

Rawal is the only place in our world, where Shrimati Radha Rani is worshiped in Her Lalan (child) swarup.

This is the sthal where Her father, Raja Vrishbhanu found Her lying in an open lotus.

“O Srinivasa see Raval, the village where Vrishabhanu used to live happily. Shree Radha appeared here, and by Her auspicious appearance the whole world was filled with joy.”

Once Raja Vrishabhanu went to the Yamuna river to take bath. He saw a golden lotus flower that shone brilliantly  in the middle of the river. In centre of the Kamal was baby Srimati Radharani. Shree Brahmdev appeared before Raja Vrishabhanu and told him that in his previous life he and his wife, Kirtida, had performed great Tup to get Her as their daughter.

RajaVrishabhanu took the divine baby home, but found her to be blind. Soon Narad Muni appeared before the Raja and explained that despite the child’s blindness he should go ahead and perform all the auspicious birth ceremonies.

When baby Krishn crawled before Shree Radha, She could smell the wonderful aroma of His body, and at that moment She opened Her eyes. The first person She saw was ShreeKrishn.

It is said Radha eyes weren’t open till the age of 11 months 15 days. After 11 months 15 days Shree Krishn was born. Nand Baba invited everybody to celebrate Shree Krishn’s birth. Raja Vrishbhan and mother Kirti were also invited. Shree Krishn lay in the  palna. At that moment ShreeRadha saw ShreeKrishn and  opened her eyes.

Shree Radhe is also called “Vrishabhanu-nandini”by bhakts

The small mandir here is called Larly-Lal. The Vigrah of ShreeRadha and Shree Krishn are said to be installed by Raja Vajranabh, Shree Krishn’s great grandsonIMG_5017

The wall that you see behind the main deity is Garbhgriha i.e., Janamsthan – The location where ShreeRadha Appeared. During those years Yamunaji used to flow at this location and on the banks of Yamunaji Raja Vrishbhan lived in his mahal.





There is a Karil (Ker fruit tree) tree within the mandir area (near Garbhgriha ) where deity of Radha ji was found by the forefathers ( Parmanand Vyas came from Jodhpur, Rajasthan) of the current mukhiyaji. This Karil tree does not have any roots and is still green.

The parisar is very well maintained by the current mukhiyaji. In fact this place is better maintained than many of the other divine sthals in Vraj Mandal

भविष्य पुराण और गर्ग संहिता ग्रंथ के अनुसार, द्वापर युग में जब भगवान श्रीकृष्ण पृथ्वी पर अवतार लेकर आए,  उस के कुछ वर्ष पूर्व महाराज वृषभानु और माँ कीर्ति के यहाँ श्री राधा भाद्रपद मास के शुक्ल पक्ष की अष्टमी के दिन प्रगट हुईं

Just outside the mandir is this pracheen tree. I am very impressed with the roots which maybe, spreads all through the area

{आराधिका में आ को हटाने से राधिका बनता है। इसी आराधिका का वर्णन महाभारत या श्रीमद्भागवत में प्राप्त है और श्री राधा नाम का उल्लेख नहीं आता। भागवत में श्रीराधा का स्पष्ट नाम का उल्लेख न होने के कारण एक कथा यह भी आती है कि शुकदेव जी को साक्षात् श्रीकृष्ण से मिलाने वाली राधा है और शुकदेव जी उन्हें अपना गुरू मानते हैं। कहते हैं कि भागवत के रचयिता शुकदेव जी राधाजी के पास शुक रूप में रहकर राधा-राधा का नाम जपते थे। एक दिन राधाजी ने उनसे कहा कि हे शुक ! तुम अब राधा के स्थान पर श्रीकृष्ण ! श्रीकृष्ण ! का जाप किया करो। उसी समय श्रीकृष्ण आ गए। राधा ने यह कह कर कि यह शुक बहुत ही मीठे स्वर में बोलता है, उसे कृष्ण के हाथ सौंप दिया। अर्थात् उन्हें ब्रह्म का साक्षात्कार करा दिया। इस प्रकार श्रीराधा शुकदेव जी की गुरू हैं और वे गुरू का नाम कैसे ले सकते थे ? https://www.hamarivirasat.com/all-about-shri-radha-rani-birth-of-shree-radha-rani/}
