Radha Kund/Syama Kund







A kund is basically a lake, a holy lake. Pilgrims come from all over to bathe in these kunds. They are located at the base of a sacred hill called Govardhana. There is a pilgrimage they one takes around this hill(I did it - 12 miles, barefoot - ouch) and you end up at Radha Kund. I wasn't really prepared to bathe in the kund, so i simply sprinkled some of the holy water on my head.

That is so wonderful! That place is considered the holiest place in the world by some, so you have great luck to have gone there and sprinkled that holy water on your head.

Also, it is considered auspicious to go around Govardhana hill, so go you!
