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

I visited the place recently a week ago. The place is very well maintained and managed. The place could be very crowded on selected day hence make sure to select appropriate days. There is a temple adjoining to the birthplace where there is an idol of Radha-Krishna which is outstanding. The main temple where lord Krishna was born is a... More
