The devotees of Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir organised Ashtakala Aaradhana Seva, an offering of 8 different forms of performing arts for the pleasure of the presiding Deities, Sri Radha Vrindavanchandra on 19 November 2023. 

The event commenced with the welcome address by Sri Chanchalapathi Dasa, President of Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir.
