The tranquility that one gets there can only be experienced once you are actually there. A must visit if you are in Mathura..!

A very serene atmosphere. We went to this place as a group. We hired a guide (he claimed to be a priest himself) who explained to us the different elements of this temple. Temple looks very calm and peaceful - leads you calm your mind. Can't resist mentioning a stall inside the temple complex where you get very good quality... More

This the very place where Lord Krishana was born - inside jail. I liked the place as I am devotee of krishan ji. You can get Krishan ji idols here for very low cost. U have many eating extension counters also. Lassi, rabri, ice cream are available for Rs 20 each

The temple complex is huge and you can reach it by cycle ricksha since cars cannot negotiate the narrow gulleys. Cameras and mobiles are not allowed but there is a facility to keep them safe for a small fee. There are many deities to be visited and mostly you get to see some gathering being addressed by Swamijis. There is... More

Aurangzeb destroyed the temple, where Lord Krsna was born. The Janma Bhoomi (jail) is right next to a big mosque. Vasudev opened 7 gates to escape with the new born, but only 1 gate remains (other 6 are lost to the mosque). It is amazing to see how locals then managed to save the Janmabhoomi from being destroyed too. It... More

It was a refreshing excursion to Mathura from Agra. Mathura is the birth place of Hindu God Shri Krishna at the bank of river Yamuna. The Janmabhoomi campus is highly secured and invigilated. Good positive vibrations and lively environment makes every one happy as soon as you enter. This place is where Lord Krishna's biological parents were imprisoned by his... More
