Vrindavan dham and the whole Braj Mandal has so much to offer to the world.Listed below is a few of these benefits.
If the government and the local people come together to protect the status and heritage of this beautiful Dham it will be for everybody’s advantage . The world heritage status given by UNESCO is only given upon request of local political authorities.
During his visit to Jay Singhera in Vrindavan (2010) the Director of UNESCO to India Mr. Armoogum Parsuramen, stated that UNESCO would immediately accept the petition if the Indian government would request the status of Vrindavan being a world heritage site.
