Mathura Tourism

Mathura serves as an important religious and cultural site for the Hindus. Known as the town where Lord Krishna was born, a large number of devotees flock towards here to visit the temples and shrines and attain some sort of enlightenment. Located just 150 kilometers away from New Delhi, this place is also well connected by road to other nearby cities such as Agra.

There is a host of temples in the city and 25 Ghats across the holy Yamuna River which runs through Mathura. Many people are seen taking the holy dip at dawn on the Yamuna River and in the evening too the scene gets even more majestic and fascinating as during the evening aarti occasion hundreds of candles are set floating onto the sacred Yamuna. History bears testimony of the fact that once it was a Buddhist centre having 20 monasteries that accommodated 3000 monks but after the advent of Hinduism, it was Hinduism all the way.

Shri Krishna Janmabhumi is the most popular site in Mathura and is believed to be the birthplace of Lord Krishna. There is a massive temple situated here, devoted to Lord Krishna and Radha. The prison where he was said to be born is open for tourists to visit. There are also various other temples dedicated to Lord Krishna here, some of the famous ones being the Dwarkadheesh Temple and the Gita Mandir. The Dwarkadheesh temple is especially famous for the grand celebration it conducts during the festivals of Holi and Janmashtami. The walls of the Gita Mandir have verses from the Bhagavad Gita inscribed upon them. It is recommended that one tour the city, especially via walking. This allows one to experience the old architecture as well as the rapid urbanization while enjoying the delicious local street foods.
