Brindavan is a town in the Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh, India..The ancient name of the city, Brindavana, comes from its groves of 'Brinda' Ocimum tenuiflorum (Holy Basil or tulasi) with vana meaning a grove or a forest.Two small groves still exist at Nidhivan and Seva Kunj.

It is derived from Vrindavan. Vrind is group and Van is Forest. Brindavan or Vrindavan is the site of an ancient forest which is the region where, according to the Mahabharata, the deity Krishna spent his childhood days with his pals.
