An interesting observation about Nidhivan

A very mysterious conception is associated with this temple i.e. after the sacred process of ARTI, not only human beings, but any kind of single animal also can’t remain in the periphery of this temple. In case anyone remains during night in the campus of this temple, either one becomes dumb, deaf, blind, lame or dies.

The person is not found hale and hearty in the morning to disclose the spiritual secret of the lord Radha-Krishna, as it is said even now that the priest puts two toothbrushes, some holy water in a jug with four sweets (LADDOO) and ready bed after Arti in the night, but in the morning everything is found and seen as if someone has used it because everything is found at sixes and sevens. It proves that Lord Radha Krishna, they appear in the night to perform their spiritual activities (Lilas).

    I do not think that god can hurt anybody………….god never do wrong thing with people…..he cannot make them dumb or deaf ..

    1. Its not tht GOD hurt those people..
      Generally, Kalyug people are not divine enough to see great Lord Krsna’s lila… The vision there is so much filled with love and divine that we become unconscious visualising it and loose our life, organ or any…..
      Facts is true.. Never should be questioned… Faith is all which make a bhakt….

  2. I went there, it very spiritual and I felt some thing divine where I can not explain you. one have to feel it.

  3. It is indeed a divine place. I also went there. It was truly amazing. I don’t know how you guys got so much information. I was told to get out of there after arti but I did’nt understand why.
