Friends of Vrindavan: The members of the Braj ‚Äď Vrindavan Heritage Alliance organized a demonstration on the eve of the World Heritage Day in front of the Ancient Govind Dev Temple in Vrindavan. The demonstrators said that the ancient buildings, temples, water bodies, hills and the ghats should be conserved. They said that the Govind Dev Temple is a unique temple which is very rich in it architecture. This temple is the biggest heritage of its type in North India. All the devotees and brajwasis who love art and culture should attribute to the protection of these heritage buildings. Though billions of people visit Braj ‚Äď Vrindavan but they don‚Äôt contribute much to the development and conservation of Vrindavan. The numbers of the tourists coming to Vrindavan can be increase if these heritage buildings are conserved. Tourist will be happy to pay to visit these heritage sites.

The culture of Braj should also be conserved and protected along with these heritage sites. The ancient monuments and buildings are the living heritage where daily rituals like worship, preaching and kirtan are performed. The devotees come to this place with faith and devotion. Some old buildings and temples having architectural value have been grabbed illegally. The Archeological Survey of India and the U.P.
