Bankey Bihari Temple was built in 1864 by Swami Haridas of the Nimbarka Sampradaya. The presiding deity in the temple is of Lord Krishna standing in the Tribhanga posture. This deity was originally worshipped by Haridas Swami under the name of Kunji-bihari. Later, the deity of Radha Rani was added to the temple.This temple is thronged by devotees in the month of Sravana, which lasts from July to August. During this festival, on the main day of Jhulan Yatra, Lord Krishna is placed in golden swing. Unlike other temples, the curtains before the deity are raised and shut every few minutes. It is believed that if seen for longer time, the brilliant eyes of Bankey Bihari can make the devotees unconscious.
