Rangji Temple, also known as Sri Ranganath Temple, is situated on the Vrindavan - Mathura Marg. It is dedicated to Lord Sri Goda Ranagamannar - a South Indian Vaishnava Saint, and Lord Ranganatha - an incarnation of Lord Krishna. The highlight of the temple is the idol of Krishna present in the form of the groom with Goda (Andal) as his bride.
Goda, also known as Andal in South India, was a famous 8th century Vaishnava Saint known for composing "Tiruppuvai". It is a hymn for her beloved Lord Krishna and his birthplace Vrindavan. It is believed that seeing her dedication to him, Lord Krishna answered her prayers by agreeing to become her groom. This form of Krishna and Andal is idolized at the Rangji Mandir in Mathura-Vrindavan. This is one of the largest temples in North India and one of the 108 Divyadesams of the Vaishnavas. Devotees visit in large number during the annual Sri Brahmotsav festival in March-April.
