One among the popular temples in Vrindavan is the Banke-bihari temple, which was constructed in the year 1864. Banke Bihari stands for Sri krishna, the Supreme Enjoyer. Haridas Swami, a contemporary of the six Goswami's discovered the Banke Bihari Deity at Nidhivana.

Though this temple is rather young when compared to other holy shrines, this temple witnesses heavy rush and it is virtually loaded with devotees during the eve of Janmashtami and Jhulan Yatra. Unlike the other temples, the deities are always not open to the devotees and only once in a year the lotus feet of the lord can be seen. The deities are covered under a curtain and each time the drape is pull shut and then unwraps again. The deity is ornamented heavily with flowers and it is a delightful site to watch such a lovely idol of lord Krishna.

The temple timings are scheduled in accordance with the climate and normally it is open between 9 am to 12 noon and 7 pm to 12 pm in summer and10 am to 1 pm and 6 pm to 9 pm in winter.
