But the devotee has to accept a condition that he should not look back. While the devotee hears the sound of grugru, the devotee came to know that he is being followed by the god. Radha is also worshipped here along with Lord Krishna. The legs of Radha are opened up on the day of Amla Navami, for darshan. But it is unexposed throughout the year.
