(Vrindavan Today) – Road Accidents Plague Devotees performing Vrindavan Parikrama

  • Reckless vehicle movements leading to frequent accidents in Vrindavan’s circumambulation route.
  • Devotees and locals face inconvenience and safety risks due to speeding vehicles.
  • Urgent need for stricter regulations and safer conditions on the Parikrama Marg.

2023.07.09 (Vrindavan Today News): Vrindavan has become a hub of concern as devotees partaking in the sacred act of Parikrama face numerous challenges due to reckless vehicle movements along the designated route. The Panchkosi Parikrama Marg, the path encircling the holy city of Sridham Vrindavan, has sadly transformed into a hotspot for frequent and alarming vehicular accidents.

Each year, during the auspicious month of Shravan, hundreds of thousands of devotees and tourists from across the nation embark on a spiritual journey to Vrindavan to seek blessings and earn merit by circumambulating Sri Dham. The parikramas occur not only during major festivals but also on significant lunar phases such as Ekadashi, Amavasya, and Purnima. However, despite the influx of devotees, the district and police administration have failed to address the issue of speeding vehicles on the encircling road.

The primary cause of concern stems from vehicles originating from the Yamuna Expressway, Atalla Chungi, Sunarakh Marg, and Banke Bihari Mandir VIP Marg, which make their way onto the Parikrama Marg. Throughout the day, thousands of heavy and smaller four-wheeled vehicles race at high speeds, posing a significant threat to the safety and convenience of those performing the circumambulation.

Mahant Phuldol Bihari Das, Swami Ramdevanand Saraswati, and Dr. Chandra Prakash Sharma have expressed their dismay over the lack of strategic planning by the authorities regarding vehicular movement on the sacred route. They advocate for the prohibition of heavy vehicles on the Parikrama Marg from 6 am to 9 pm daily, ensuring a smoother and safer experience for devotees and locals alike.
