MA RADHA RANI TEMPLE AT BARSANA, UTTAR PRADESH
Ma Radha Rani is the pure devotee of Lord Krishna, and she loved Lord Krishna very much, which cannot be expressed in words. Sometimes due to his thoughts, she used to forget about herself and about the surroundings. She can be considered even superior to the wives of Lord Krishna with regard to her devotion, love and affection on him. Radha and Krishna came to know each other, since their fathers were close friends.
