Radha Vallabha Mandir is located just 2 minutes from Banke Bihari Mandir. The deities of Radha Vallabha Ji was worshipped by Shri Hit Harivansh Mahaprabhu.
Hit Harivansh Mahaprabhu is the incarnation of vamsi (flute) of Krishna and descended to give the inner confidential maha-madhurya prema-bhav of nav-nivritta-nikunja in the mood of sehcharis.
The temple is grand and one needs to climb stairs and go in a zig-zag lane to enter the temple courtyard. Once inside the courtyard, you will see the grand darshan of Sri Sri Radha Vallabha Ju.
There is no Radharani in the altar. However, you will see that the deity of Radha Vallabha Ju has a long braid coming from his crown.
Rasika Vaishnavas of Vrindavan mention that not everybody has adhikar (eligibility) to see the confidential rupa (form) of Srimati Radharani, hence the deity is yugal jodi. Yugal jodi or Yugal rupa means both Krishna and Radharani are together in one body (deity). The long braid and hair in Radha Vallabha Ji is that of Sri Radha.
Holi at Radha Vallabha Mandir is a totally out-of-world experience in itself.
