In accordance with the directions of the revealed scriptures, both Gosvamis excavated the lost places of pilgrimage and inaugurated the worship of Deities in Vrndavana.
The spot where we now find Sri Radha-kunda was an agricultural field during the time of Caitanya Mahaprabhu. A small reservoir of water was there, and Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu bathed in that water and pointed out that originally Radha-kunda existed in that location. Following His directions, Srila Rupa Gosvami and Sanatana Gosvami renovated Radha-kunda. This is one of the brilliant examples of how the Gosvamis excavated lost places of pilgrimage. Similarly, it is through the endeavor of the Gosvamis that all the important temples at Vrndavana were established. Originally there were seven important Gaudiya Vaisnava temples established in Vrndavana, namely, the Madana-mohana temple, Govinda temple, Gopinatha temple, Sri Radharamana temple, Radha-Syamasundara temple, Radha-Damodara temple and Gokulananda temple.
