Vrindavan’s Shri Ranganath temple ‘Mela’ is currently being celebrated, with Shri Ranganath being brought out of the temple to sit in His garden in a procession that attracts thousands of devotees daily. Shri Rangji travels from the temple to the garden each morning, after the aarti and returns before sunset. Thakurji sits on a different ‘rath’ (chariot) every day.
After watching Thakurji’s procession from the garden to the temple, visitors and locals enjoy the ‘mela’ (fair) which has amusement park rides and various stalls. The mela lasts for ten days and today is already the fifth day.
Devotees who attend the festival during also the day get the chance to see Rangji’s garden, which is filled with fragrant flowers at this time of year.
