Located in Vrindavan, the Shahji temple is one of the most sacred places in the city. It is an architectural masterpiece. It is another temple dedicated to Lord Krishna.
The architectural specimen was the thought of the two Shah brothers: Shah Kundan Lal and Shah Phundan Lal, who lived in Lucknow. It was built in 1876 and the construction started around 8 years back.
The portraits of the founders are painted on the floor, instead of being put up on the walls as per the usual custom. This is done to denote their humility as well as the holy soil of Vrindavan.
The deity of Lord Krishna known as Chote Radha Raman is worshipped here. The architectural beauty is the prime attraction of the place. It is a blend of the Mughal, Greek and Hindu architecture. The temple, built for Radha and Krishna brings a poetic feeling. The beautiful marble paintings like Radha dancing joyfully with her beloved, Lord Krishna are all masterpieces.
The yellow chandeliers, fountains and the statues portraying Raas Leela are a must see. Adding to the beauty of the temple is rhe Rituraj Bhavan, which is adorned with colourful paintings on the ceiling and walls.
