Sri Krishna Janmasthan, Mathura

4.7
Feel the power of ancient mythology and powerful traditions at Sri Krishna Janmasthan, one of the most sacred Hindu temples believed to have been constructed at the birthplace of Krishna. Standing on holy grounds as a countless reincarnation of the first shrine believed to be 5,000 years old, the present-day pale red structure was completed in 1965. Impressive images of deities with vivid colors feature all over the large gardens. Lord Krishna’s chariot pulled by four white horses, and Shiva prancing atop of a seven-headed king cobra are among the highlights. See the cage-like shrine behind a mosque marking Krishna’s exact birthplace. Use our Mathura tour itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Sri Krishna Janmasthan and other attractions in Mathura.

  • 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.
  • Holy place.very well maintained place with high security.no camera or phones are allowed inside.there are lockers available outside the temple which charge very nominal fees. No guide actually required as instruction boards are quite helpful. A true example of religion harmony.a place to relax and do some meditation.
  • The place where lord krishna was born. It's very clean peaceful and will give you spiritual vibes for sure. Authority has maintained the discipline n pilgrim friendly behaviour here.
  • Good to see. we can feel more safe into the temple. Mobile, camera and any electronic device is not allowed into the temple. even belt, key ear phone also not allowed. however they have cloak room facility to keep your valuable thinks safe. bathrooms are very clean.
  • Shri Krishna was born here. Here you can have a little parking problem but this temple is very beautiful. The Shloka of Gita is written on the wall of the temple. This temple has all the provisions of security. You can not take anything like leather belts, purses etc. Inside the temple you can buy tea, coffee ,etc. You can buy things from the markets outside the temple.
