Vrindavan – Morning walk

13th February 2014 (Day 5) (Vrindavan #8)

Early this morning we set off on a walk through part of Vrindavan. In the background above is Jugal Kishor Temple, constructed in 1627 following permission from Mogul Emperor Akhbar.

Following images show some of the places and views I encountered on the walk. In most cases they need no further comment, particularly since I may know little more about them than what you see.

A vendor on the way to work, I should think. Rubbish collection is not a strong point in the Indian states Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. Corruption is also not unknown. Apparently the current or a recent mayor of Vrindavan sold the land that was being used for a tip, so now they have no official place to dump rubbish.

This is a passageway into a compound where we visited a local family.

And here is the family. While we were there a dog unfortunately bit one of our party. This resulted in quickly organising a doctor for rabies injections. Fortunately she was OK.

This is a view at the upper level above the compound.
