Kadambh tree, a 6000 years old tree at Cheer Ghat in Vrindavan believed to have been climbed by Lord Krishna is situated on the banks of River Yamuna.

The tree is a symbol of Lord Krishna’s childhood mischiefs where he gave a lesson to the gopis visiting the Ghat for daily bath. As per story, Lord Krishna once hid the clothes of the gopis bathing in the Yamuna river telling them it was wrong to bath in the river.

Number of sarees sway from the branches of Kadambh tree as the devotees visiting the Holy place pay tribute to the story by offering clothes. The belief is that one who donates any type of clothes here never feels the lack of them.

Men offer clothes on the name of their mothers, married women offer clothes on the name of themselves and their husbands while unmarried girls offer clothes on the name of Lord Krishna and Goddess Radha.

The Kadambh tree at the Cheer Ghat has the footprints of Lord Krishna when he climbed the tree. Given a strong presence of Lord Krishna in the area, Cheer Ghat is a good place to soak in the spiritual vibes of Vrindavan as you imagine a playful Lord Krishna and his gopis frolicking about with abandon.
