Mathura is said to be birthplace of Lord Krishna. In fact, an ancient temple stands here, right at the spot of Lord Krishna’s birth. This holy city is amongst the seven sacred places in Hinduism. Pilgrims visit Mathura in overwhelming numbers, especially on Janmashtami (Lord Krishna’s birthday). The present structure was rebuilt in the 20th century. The Dwarkadheesh Temple remains one of the oldest and largest temples in Mathura. It is an astounding work of architecture and houses the black marble deity is of Lord Dwarkadheesh (a form of Lord Krishna) and also the white marble deity of goddess Radhika. An absolutely not to be missed place is the city of Vrindavan. Situated just about 15 km from Mathura, it’s believed to be the spot, where Lord Krishna spent his childhood and adolescent years. In fact, there is an ancient garden complex here, where the lord is believed to have serenaded maidens during his adolescence. The legend goes that the Lord still manifests here at night and no one should enter the premises after sunset. There are local anecdotes about people who lost their sanity and even lives as they chose to violate this belief. The Vrindavan complex has quite a few temples and sacred pools. During your tour of Vrindavan, you will also visit the ancient holy water bodies called Brahma Kund and Govind Kund, as well as the deeply-revered Govind Dev Ji Temple and the globally renowned Krishna Balaram ISKCON Temple.
