Legends and stories
Craze and popularity of Ras Pooja increased every year. Some of the merchants, who were the devotees of Lord Krishna too, come forward and donated with an open heart. Almost every year some expansion was given to the temple. Even some land was acquired for future expansions. A large premise was built and it was ensured that Ras Pooja is not affected even if the expansion is done. Initially, Ras Pooja was a celebration of three days, later it increased up to five days in the 60s, seven days in 1970 and presently is being celebrated from eleven to fifteen days.
