During recent visit to Vrindavan we stayed at Vatslya Gram Guest-House and some of us thought of having a round of whole campus during morning. This Photo Journey tries to take you through a tour of Vatslya Gram Campus in Vrindavan !!! Let's check-out...
Here is a photograph of marble art-piece which is placed just in front of main gate of Vatsalya Gram. It's framed inside a glass-room and surrounded by water fountains, which were not operational. This was first thing we saw after getting out of our guest house.
Next to the guest house, there is a huge ground with a hut on one of the corners. This is just on left side of main entry gate. This lady was roaming around the place and I think she was also a part of Prabhat-feri at 5:30am. Prabhat-Feri is something where group of people come together at a place and enjoy bhajans while walking towards some temple. At Vatsalya Gram, a group of ladies came to the Radha Rani Temples near guest house at 5:30am. Some of us went down to see, how all this happens.
Vatslya Gram Campus at Vrindavan is full of Flora and Fauna. Whole campus is very well maintained, with plenty of green areas. Whole campus has variety of trees, plants and flowers.
After walking parallel to the ground, we reached a place where lot of other roads were merging. Some kids were coming towards us with some secret conversations :) .. They were actually going to Gaushala to get milk.
There is a huge Gaushala, where all cows are kept in groups. Every morning all families of Vatslya Gram get milk from this place. The place was quite clean and many of the folks were working inside the sheds to clean the place.
Every cow at Vatsalya Gram was marked with a number...
Just opposite to Gaushala there was huge campus named as 'Gokulam'. This was the place where lot of families stay with their kids. Very well maintained place to live with lot of green area and playing area for kids.
I again forgot the name of this fruit which was available inside Vatsalya Gram in huge numbers. There were various tree of this fruit at Vatsalya Gram and this fruit is used to make juice. I will update the blog, as I get to know about exact details of this fruit :)
There was another region around small school where Pomegranate trees were looking great with rich colored flowers on them. Above Photograph shows early stage of an Pomegranate, when it has just started getting shape out of a flower.
Above photograph shows school for small kids of Vatsalya Gram. There were two sections to this school. Apart from this school we had heard of a huge school campus at Vatsalya Gram. The big school was 15 minutes away from this one and we thought of going there later, as plan was to visit some of the temples around Vrindavan Market.
Here is a photograph of black-board of small school with thought of the day !!!
After proper sun-rise, we returned back to our rooms and started other journey towards Prem Mandir at Vrindavan. Detailed campus tour of whole Vatsalya Gram is planned soon...
