About mathura

Located on the banks of the Yamuna River in the state of Uttar Pradesh, Mathura is famed for being the birthplace of the Hindu God, Lord Krishna. Mathura is at the center of Braj or Brij-Bhoomi, referred to as Shri Krishna Janma-Bhoomi which literally means 'Lord Krishna's birthplace.' It is just an hour’s drive from Agra.\r\n\r\nThe entire region is speckled with splendid temples, dedicated to different aspects of Lord Krishna’s life. The city, with its rich history and culture, is a pilgrimage spot for Hindus. Some of the famous temples of Mathura are Govind Dev Temple, Dwarikadhish Temple, Bankey Bihari Temple, Rangaji Temple and the ISKCON Temple. Lord Krishna loved milk and butter, and hence Mathura is famous for its milk-based products, especially the Mathura Peda – a soft milk sweet that’s fresh and melts in your mouth. Handicrafts and a wide variety of trinkets that are related to the story of Lord Krishna and his childhood are also famous here. The city comes to life during the numerous festivals that are celebrated throughout the year. The other places of interest in Mathura are the Mathura Museum, Govardhan Hill, and Kans Qila.
