It was like visiting your childhood memories of Amar Chitra Katha. The temple is well maintained. The evening arti gives you the soul of the place.

Again i am a visitor since childhood. This place have changed drastically in last 10 years.. You can't take the electronic devices including mobile inside the temple. You should visit in the evening time to have a better view. You will enjoy the place during winter.

The main temple is beautiful in Mathura town but the other temple is also worth to see is in Vrindavan "ISKON Hare rama Hare Krishna" temple. Gokul is one of the must see place... More

The place is heavily guarded and full of devotees from round the world. The main Mandir remains closed from 11 a, to 3:30 pm, so avoid visiting the place during this time. There is an artificial cave adventure, that could be enjoyed by the kids. Tickets for the same are available in the temple vicinity. Cameras and mobiles are not... More

It was a fruitful experience and with the early morning the complete darshan happened swiftly. Need to keep all mobile and accessories in a locker before entering. Look for the Prasad after Pooja. Though there would be people trying to reach you out for special entry and guide, truly speaking it's not required at all. Do not get confused with... More
