Shree Radha Rani birth (pragatya)place at Rawal. It is in Mahavan at Mathura.
Rawal is 9km (6 miles) south of Mathura, on the other side of the Yamuna River. It is about halfway between Mathura and Gokul.
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.”
Darshans of Shree Radha in Her Lalan Form. On four different days.
RajaVrishabhanu took the divine baby home, but found her to be blind. Narad Muni appeared before the Raja and told him 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 murti of ShreeRadha and Shree Krishn are said to be installed by Raja Vajranabh, Shree Krishn’s great grandson
The one you are watching behind the main deity is Garbhgriha i.e., Janamsthan – The location where Radha appeared. During those years Jamuna river used to flow at this location and on the banks of Jamuna Vrishbhan had a palace.
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. The current Karil tree does not have any roots and is still green.
The parisar is very well maintained by the current mukhiyaji. This place is better maintained than many of the other areas in Vraj Mandal
