NidhiVan is a sacred temple of Bankey Bihari in Vrindavan. The major part of the temple is surrounded with huge busy forests. The Temple derives its name from Nidhi meaning Treasure and Van meaning forest. Everywhere greenery and twisted trees. A very amazing thing about the forest that you can see as well is; all the roots, branches and the trunk of the trees are hollow. There is nothing life-giving inside it; also the land at the temple is really dry - still the twigs and leaves remain lively and green throughout the year.

There are many interesting stories or myths behind it. It is believed that Lord Krishna comes here every night and performs spiritual activities (RasLila) with Radha and all his gopis. Inside the temple there is a beautifully ornamented statue of Lord Krishna and Radha (Radhe-Krishna Idol). The park that surrounds temple is covered with small trees known as VanaTulsi (Basil Trees). As per the myth, Swami Haridas was a divine sage and a great devotee of lord Krishna. Seeing Haridas’s devotion, spiritual desires and hard reparation, Lord Krishna appeared in front of him. The place where Lord Krishna appeared is now known as PrakatyaSathal (place of appearance of Shree Bankey Bihari Ji).

The Nidhivan temple is closed after the evening prayer as it is believed that Lord Krishna & Radha appear here at the every night to perform their spiritual activities (Ras Leela). If anyone sees these activities he/she becomes dumb, deaf, and blind or may be even dies. The person is not found hale and hearty in the morning to disclose the spiritual secret of Lord Radha Krishna, Inside the Rang Mahal priest daily puts two toothbrushes, a saree, bangles, paan leaves, some holy water in jug with four sweets (Laddoo) and ready bed after aarti in the night, but in the morning everything is found scattered and seen as if someone has used it and paan leaves are chewed so after evening aarati, no one is allowed inside the premise. Even all the monkeys that stay there leave Nidhivan after evening aarti.

The natives of the place, the priest and care-takers are very well aware of the miracles. After the evening aarti, all the windows in front of Nidhivan temple gets closed till morning worship. Nobody dares to see Radhe-Krishna Rasleela. Many natives also claimed to have heard the sound of Ghungroos (Musical Anklet) at night.

Another mysterious factor of Nidhivan is the shape and size of the trees covered this place. All the trees are very short and intertwined to each other. Almost all of these trees are of same size and shape. The trees are believed to be Gopis, and their intertwined shape depicts the love between themselves. There is no sign of birds nest or some insect on tree. The Holy place and trees are said to be favourite of Lord Krishna. It is said that whatsoever worship here is benefited immensely.
