Rangji Temple

Rangji Temple, built in the year 1851, is a southern style temple located in Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh. Vrindavan is about 15 km from Mathura.

Built by the Seth family of Mathura, this beautiful temple is dedicated to Lord Sri Ranganatha or Rangaji (a form of Lord Vishnu lying down on the Sesa Naga).

The temple, surrounded by high walls, has a traditional South Indian gopuram. A grand festival, which lasts for 10 days, named Rath Yatra (also Brahmotsava) held here is a major draw.
