Vilas Garh / विलास गढ़

This place is situated on Vishnu-parvat Radha and Krishna performed many playful pastimes (vilas) here. Nearby is where Radha used to play in the dust together with Her sakhis.

Story

One day, when Radhika was a child, She was playing in the dust with Her sakhis when mischievous Krishna suddenly arrived. The sakhis forbade Him to come inside the kunja, but why would Shri Krishna obey them? He entered by force. At that moment, a dust-storm fell upon them by providence, and the entire sky became covered with dust. Nothing could be seen anywhere, and the sakhis fearfully covered their eyes with their hands. Krishna took this opportunity to embrace the youthful Radhika and kiss Her face. This pastime took place at the time of vayah-sandhi, or the period between childhood and youth. Today, Vilas Mandir is situated where this pastime took place.
The Adi-varah Purana states:

vilas rupine tubhyarii namah Krishnaya te namah
sakhivarga sukhaptaya krida-vimala darsine

"I offer my obeisances to Shri Krishna in the form of He who plays lovely pastimes. He performs these pastimes simply to give pleasure to the sakhis."
