Sri Krishna Janmasthan, Mathura

(130 reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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. A visit to Sri Krishna Janmasthan represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Mathura trip builder to plot your vacation.

  • Birthplace of lord Krishna. The jail in which lord Krishna was born is still intact. Beautiful temple complex. Heavily guarded by army since there is a mosque right behind the temple. Cameras and cell phones are not allowed inside. You can deposit in the cloak room. Avoid any touts who offer VIP darshan and guided tours.
  • Very devine and a holy place . And the most interesting fact is that the wall of temple shares its wall with a mosque with a lot of police force and wiring seems like LOC. Also bags and mobiles are not allowed inside temple. do give a thumbs up if it helped you
  • Very holy place for people of SANATNA dhrma. You will forgive all deep and sorrow in this temple. Hare Krishna
  • it is the place whr lord krishna ws born.. phone, cameras, match box, or any such kind of item is not allowed inside.. so u better advised to keep it in your room because the cloak room is always crowded so it will save ur time.. next thing there is different queus available for men and women.. it is very crowded on the occassion of holi and shri krishna janmasthmi.. there is hotel whr u can stay but be sure to advance book it.. thanks.. hope it helps..
  • Among the most pious places for Hindus, Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi temple is one of the most serene holy places of India. The temple administration and local police ensures impeccable cleanliness and great organization with strong security in a place visited by thousands of pilgrims daily. Being newly renovated, this temple is smartly architectured to support large number of visitors. Some of the countless great things about this temple is that it is free from money hogging Pandas and also has an affordable guest house (run by temple administration) attached to it. Must visit this place if you happen to pass by Mathura.
