Mathura :


Mathura is located at a distance of 145 km south-east of Delhi and 58 km north-west of Agra. Mathura is one of the holiest towns of Uttar Pradesh and ranks high among the pilgrim destinations of north India. It is located on the western banks of River Yamuna and was formerly a hub of rich culture and civilization.

The Krishna Janmabhoomi temple is the most important attraction of the town and has its own charm and grandeur that gets manifested through its magnificent architecture. The pleasure of exploring this ancient town cannot be put in words and it would seem as if the history of this place has come alive. You should have a fair idea about Mathura including vital tourist information about the city before embarking on a journey to this sacred place.

Brajbhoomi- the land where Shri Krishna was born and spent his youth, has today little towns and hamlets that are still alive with the Krishna legend and still redolent with the music of his flute. Mathura, a little town on the River Yamuna was transformed into a place of faith after Lord Krishna was born here. Vrindavan, a village - once noted for its fragrant groves, is where he spent an eventful youth. There are numerous other little spots in the area that still reverberate with the enchantment of Shri Krishna. 

Gokul :

The most celebrated of Shri Krishna's abodes, Gokul lies to the west of Sadabad, 1.6 km from Mahavan and 15 km south-east of Mathura, on the Mathura - Etah metalled road. It was here that Lord Krishna was brought up in secrecy by Yeshoda, in the pastoral beauty of this village on the banks of the Yamuna.

The celebration of Janmashtami in August is unparalleled for its gaiety and melas are a constant attraction here. Other such festivities celebrated with traditional fervour include the Janmotsav in Bhadaon, the Annakut Festival and the Trinavat Mela held on the fourth day of the dark half of Kartik. Important sites worth visiting in Gokul include the Gokulnath Temple, Raja Thakur Temple, Gopal Lalji Temple and the Morwala Temple.
