  • Traffic is high and they have limited parking. Its such a holy place, they could have developed more and then there is possibility for foreign tourists. But still the temple is accessible for everyone. Devotional vibes, dancing and singing everywhere. A must visit place, and strict security. They don’t allow bag’s or mobile phones inside the temple. Monkeys are everywhere, one should be careful while feeding them. Best time to viist is early morning.
  • The only place you should first visit among the many other temples you see every meter.  Though face some parking problems but after all this there is nothing to worry. Better keep your cell phones and remotes in the car itself. they don't even allow car lock remotes inside. So, better keep your gadgets in the car. After the security check, you are all set to experience the best of Mathura. The Temple main building it magnificent and the inside truly awesome. Don't come here in the noon, the Idols of God are not in show for some time and even the gates are closed for some time. There is also the exact said place where Lord Krishna was born, deep below the present temple.  Apart from all these, you can also visit and exhibition of Krishna's life in short in the form a cave just beside the temple in the campus only. You can buy eatables inside. The stairs are very hot during the noon, though various arrangements are made to help visitors but still the sun wins over all.
  • A beautiful place to visit but remember it strictly follows timing and very tight security. They provide clock rooms and keep your luggage very safely. camera and mobile are not allowed and deposited outside and are kept safe. A must visit place if you are visiting Mathura.
  • Every thing is well managed, separate locker for your language, at the cost of 2 rupee per bag Separate locker for your mobile phone.at the cost of 2rupee per mobile ... Best place to stay .... Hotel at affordable price... Good food available at affordable price.. Fully Secured by Mathura police and CISF force Prefer govt city bus ...
