Govardhan Hill, Mathura

3.9
#2 of 18 in Nature in Uttar Pradesh
Walk across a mountain which is said to had been touched by Lord Krishna and is now resembling him at Govardhan Hill. Learn about how Krishna lifted the hill to save the people from the floods caused by Indra, the god of rain and lightning, thus proving his supremacy and establish a cult of reverence. Take a sacred walk around the hill to show your respect and devotion by circling the 21km (13 mi) track. The most devoted finish their trek along the charcoal road barefoot, but that is not an obligation. Taste the local cuisine at restaurants nearby and shop for souvenirs. Use our Mathura online road trip planner to visit Govardhan Hill on your trip to Mathura, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • This place is really nice. Really our citizen were true that they choose one day to walk for 21 km which is good for our health.
  • Highly religious place for Hindu devotees. Lot of rush of devotees anytime of the year one goes. Parking needs to be better
  • Very good place for Radha Krishna devotees . Radhe Radhe
  • Girraj Ji Maharaj Govardhan Parwat
  • Pilgrimage place but management is very poor in temple lots of dirt and no proper place to take bath in mansi ganga for womens There is wetness in temple Beware of pandits they will try to indulge u daan of rupees 500 1000..... Lots of devotees..... and danger of chain snatcher and kidnapper.... Although parikarma marg is better than temple ..... here u can find water and confectionery and small dhaba for food.......other wise this place is nice lots of temples to visit and 21km of excitement and pleasant place....
