Devotees make a beeline to temples

The appearance day of Radha, revered as the mystical companion of Lord Krishna, was observed at various Krishna temples here on Tuesday.

‘Radha Rani’, as she is reverentially called, appeared on the eighth day of Shukla paksha (full moon fortnight) in the Bhadrapada month of Hindu calendar. Interestingly, the day falls exactly 15 days after Krishnashtami is observed. ISKCON's Radha Govinda Mandir at Alipiri and Sri Radha Shyam Sundar temple near Kapila Theertham wore a festive look, as both the shrines were tastefully decorated with resplendent flowers. A celestial bath was given to the deities of Krishna and Radha with milk and other aromatic substances.

Devotees made a beeline to the shrines to invoke the blessings of the goddess.
