Radha Vallabhis

a Hindu sect which worships Krishna as Radha Vallabha, the lord or lover of Radlha. This favorite mistress of Krishna is the object of adoration to all the sects wlho worship that deity, but the adoration of Radha is of very recent origin. The founder of this sect is alleged to have been a teacher named Hari Vans, who settled at Vrindavan, and established a math there, which in 1822, comprised between forty and fifty resident ascetics. He also erected a temple there which still exists.
