Kusum Sarovar - The gopis or the young ladies would pick flowers for Lord Krishna and it is the best place for swimming in Braj bhumi. Earlier known as Sumanah Sarovara during the time of Lord Chaitanya, it is stated in the Chaitanya Caritamrita that Lord Chaitanya took bath in this sarovar which is 60ft deep.
Ashoka-lata kunja, or the forest grove, is also situated on the bank of Kusuma Sarovara. It is here that Krishna braided Radharani's hair as illustrated in the Govinda Lilamrita. There is a small temple, on the left of Kusuma Sarovara, by the road that marks the place where Krishna decorated Radharani's hair.
Lake of Tears - The lake is dedicated to Radha, who waited for Lord Krishna in this place filling the lake with her tears. Such is the stunning beauty of the lake at Mansarover a few miles across the Yamuna river from the town of Vrindavan. The lake is a wetland grove and a bird sanctuary. Tradition says that the sarovar was formed from the tears of Sri Radha while in an intensely emotional state of wounded love, for her man . She came here alone when she feared she had lost Krishna from her life.
