Do not visit on Saturday or sunday. Its crowded, Also management is trying to help the commuters but they are help less. The timing to visit the temple is 9-12 in morning and 6-9 in evening. It will become less crowded if they open the temple throughout the day. But no one cares.

Rest Temple is awesome and old, have faith in god. Every human being must visit Bankey Bihari temple. Its Awesome.

I usually visit Vrindavan Bankey Bihari Temple because I have faith in it.Be mentally prepared to face a lot of crowd inside. Take extremely care of your belongings.One of my friend's wallet was stole inside the temple. Do not give prasad and money to the pujaris outside the temple as these people befool you easily.Extremely crowded place.

We have visited other places like Prem Mandir and our expectation were high. Extremely narrow roads, mud every where, no proper place to keep your footware and on top of that filthy surrounding. Crowded like hell, we wasted our time, not a worth visit. About god/Krishna he never do partiality between this temple and other. So you have lots of time and your family(specially ladies) dont mind get into crowd and get pushed from every side. Then can visit this place else must avoid. Also take care of your belonging, mostly people try to steal from you. Also dont take any sweets/prasad from outside people, it might be poisoned. Dont get fooled by people around you for money.

was left around 1km away from temple as have to go walking after that point.. very narrow street and walking was difficult due to rickshaws there.
we bought prasad, put our sandles aside and chanted "shri krishna" and entered the temple which was heavily crowded on friday morning. I was losing heart that i would not get the close darshan and could not offer the prasad to Krishna. But Krishna gave me energy to proceed and luckly i got darshan and Krishna also accepted my prasad. At last we were happy and blessed.
Note: Buy peda(sweet) by the very last shop in left before entring the temple. they was tasty.

the reviews do not matter.once u r planning for Vrindavan means u have to go there.for information; this place is crowded throught the year as such,but during any holidays the crowd is uncontrollable,which is quite common in religious places in India as u might be knowing,so plan your trip accordingly,if u have problem with too much crowd. secondly they say temple closes at 9pm,but it may close some time before,so keep safe n go earlier.thirdly during early morning u can get darshan relatively easily !!! fourth,beware of the pandas,do not get fooled n give away money unnecessarily ,if u must better to contribute towards temple funds !!! photography not allowed inside temple.take care of your belongings,we lost a mobile,didnt bother us too much as the set was cheap !!!
