Satoya / सतोया
- This village lies two miles west of Meheran Gaon in area of Barsana. It is also called Satvasa.
- At this place, Maharaja Satrajit, the father of one of Shri Krishna's queens named Satyabhama, worshipped the Sungod. Over the years, the word satra has evolved into the name Satvasa.
- North-east of this village is Surya-kund, on the northern bank of which there is a temple of Suryadev, or the Sungod. Maharaja Satrajita used to worship Suryadev here after bathing in the pond.
