Mangarh is a small village between Ayodhya & Prayag. The Bhakti Dham Mangarh, has been developed at the birth place of Shri Kripaluji Maharaj. The foundation of majestic Bhakti Temple (main temple) was laid down by Kripaluji Maharaj on 26th october 1996 and inaugurated with great celebrations in November 2005. The temple is 108 feet in height and built of pink sand stone, Makrana white marble & black granite and is an excellent example of architectural marvel. The temple houses statue of Maharaj Ji along with that of Radha Krishna, their eight>close friends (Sakhies) and different idols depicting different facets of Brij Rasleela.
Bhakti Temple is the only temple honouring the ultimate embodiment of selfless divine love of the eight principal sakhies (eternal, personal aides of Radha Rani,viz., Lalita, Vishakha, Sudevi, Rangdevi, Champaklata, Chitra, Tung Vidya, Indulekha) with Shri Radha-Krishan. Couplets written by Maharaj Ji have been inscribed on the walls of the temple. The courtyard of the temple has panels on both sides which houses the statues of Radha- Krishan Leela & important events in the life of Maharaj Ji.
The temple is the centre of meditation & spirituality. This place of pilgrimage is not to be missed by those who want to receive spiritual guidance & inspiration.
