Imli Tala.

This tree was a favorite place of Srimati Radharani. Once, during a rasa dance performance, Srimati Radharani suddenly left and finding Her missing, Krishna went in search of Her. As he was unable to find Her, He came and sat beneath this tree. Due to intense feelings of separation from His beloved Radha, Krishna's body started to turn the same golden hue as Srimati Radharani's body. At that moment, Radharani came there accompanied by Her girl friends and haddarsana of that golden complexioned form of Lord Krishna.Radharani asked Krishna the meaning of this golden form and He explained to Her that after searching for Her, He came and sat here and in a mood of deep separation, after chanting the name of Radharani, His body started to turn a golden color just like Hers. Then His own feelings and sentiments were replaced by Hers, and He began to experience Her mood of separation from Himself. Krishna then told Radharani that in the Kali-yuga, He would again take on Her mood and complexion and distribute love of God to all the conditioned souls.Almost 5,000 years later, Krishna again came in the form of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the incarnation of Krishna, known as the ‘Golden Avatara’ due to His golden complexion. When visiting Vrindavana, He came here regularly, and sat beneath this same tree and chanted the holy names of Krishna. Feeling deep separation from Krishna, Sri Chaitanya's body would turn the same blackish hue as Lord Krishna's body and He would continually shed tears of love in spiritual ecstasy.
