Vrindavan The alluring and bewitching Krishna grazes his cows in Vrindavana. (Gauri Kabir, p. 338)

Krishna brought Parijata (wish-fulfilling tree) from heaven for his Gopi and was engaged in love in Vrindavana. (Var Asa M. l, p. 470)

Vrindavana is a vana (forest) in the district of Matbura, where Krishna passed his youth among the cowherds. He is, therefore, called Gopala. His frolics with the Gopis at Vrindavana are very famous. He used to graze cows there alongwith other cowherds.
