Radha Kund was created after Lord Krishna killed Aristasur, a bull-like demon. The bull is believed to be a symbol of religion as it belongs to the cow family. Therefore, according to Radharani and the Gopis, Lord Krishna committed a religious crime by killing the bull. Radha ji asked Krishna to purify himself by bathing in all the holy rivers. Finally, to please Radharani, Lord Krishna collected the water of all the holy places in one place. Krishna struck his lotus feet on the ground which caused the water of all the supernatural and holy rivers to collect at that place, and from that time on, this place is known as Shyam Kund. Seeing this, Radharani dug the ground with her bangles and made another pool near Shyam Kund. All the holy water bodies requested Radha Ji to enter the pool created. Hence, this is how Radha Kund was built. On the banks of the Radha Kund, there are a total of eight kunds named after the eight chief friends of Radha Rani.
