Divine Love

Of all the classic Shri Krishnalove stories that abound in India, the legend of Radha and Krishna  is one of the most famous, along with Laila & Majnu, Heer & Ranja, etc., 

A different kind of love story is, according to some, a continuation of the story of Radha & Krishna, where a young princess in Rajasthan, Mira or Meera, considered an incarnation of Radha is enamoured with her love for the Divine Krishna. Legend has it that while watching a marriage procession in Meera & Krishnafront of her residence. Mira, the child, spotted the well-dressed bridegroom and asked her mother innocently, "Dear mother, who will be my bridegroom?" Mira Bai’s mother smiled, and half in jest and half in earnest, pointed towards the image of Shri Krishna and said, "My dear Mira, Lord Krishna - this beautiful fellow – is going to be your bridegroom".
Meera Temple

That was the beginning of the life long love between this young princess and Krishna. At Chittorgarh in Meera Temple - InsideRajasthan, is the beautiful temple,  where this princess used to go to pray and sing to her Lord.
