Vihval Kund, Sanket (Nandgaon)

History of the site

It is said that it was here Krishna and Radha met for the first time. Looking at each other’s beauty they were awe stuck and became overwhelmed. Tears rolled out of their eyes and with their tears this puranic kund was formed. Close to it is a land for  Van , temple of Sanket Bihari and a raasmandal.

Plight of the kund
 

The kund was lying in the state of neglect. It’s ghats  and the temple were dilapidated and it was full of silt. The forest had no trees. The villagers of Sanket village were keen on it’s restoration but did not have the required funds.

 

 

 

Braj Foundation’s effort

With the financial support of Mr. Kamal Morarka the foundation started it’s de-silting and finished the job in three months. After which a complete development plan was made for it’s further restoration.
 

Beautification plan

Our plan includes complete beautification of the kund, forestation and development of the Van, restoration of the temple and rasmandal. We also need to erect barbed wire fencing around the whole area so to protect it’s environment and to check encroachment.

If we later feel that govt.  has not completed the required renovation then we will raise resources to complete the work.

Location

This ancient kund is located in between Nandgaon and Barsana on Kosi Goverdhan Road and is about 14 Kms from NH2.
