How to go to Chandra Sarovar?
It is situated 1.5 miles away from Govardhan. We can reach Chandra Sarovar from the well-built road from the village Sonkh or from the weak road of Daanghati.
Shri Mahaprabhuji’s Bethakji:
When Mahaprabhuji came here, he took bath in Chandra Sarovar, sat under the tree of Chokar and did Bhagwat Parayan. He had shown the darshan of Raas lila at the request of the vaishnavas here. One vaishnav requested as to how could one do the divine darshan of Shri Girirajji? At this Shri Mahaprabhuji said that if one does three parikramas in one day without having a single halt and with complete faith and love, then he could do the divine darshan of Shri Girirajji in the form of white snake, Gwal, Lion and cow.
During Saraswat Kalp Chandrasarovar used to be known as ancient Vraj. In this era Shri Krshna had called gopis by playing flute at this place in the night of Sharad Purnima and played raas. Hence it is Vrindavan of Saraswat Kalp, this village is called Parasoli.
There is one more reason for this place to be known as Parasoli:
There used to be another flow of Shri Yamunaji here during Saraswat Kalp. It used to merge with the Yamunaji in Agra. Place between the two flows was known as an island. Parashar Muni had done a great tap over here. He stayed here in an ashram, which he had built. Hence from the name of that Muni, the village is called Parasoli. Vedvyasji took birth in the family of Shri Parashar Muni over here. He was famous as Parasharya son of Parashar Muni. Many scholars say that the name of this village is because of this. This fact could be seen in the sand over here, it is like the sand of a river. Even in Srimad Bhagwat this fact is reflected. Many padas of raaslila are famous here.
