Sri Krishna Janmasthan, Mathura

(120+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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.

  • It is the temple built where Lord Krishna was born (inside a prison). A beautiful and pious place to visit with friends and family. Electronic equipments and bags are not allowed inside the temple. They need to be submitted at the counter with a minimal fees. There are shops inside the temple serving basic food items and souvenirs.
  • This is the very place where lord Krishna was born. Very beautiful deities. Electronic items are not allowed inside the temple premises and are kept at a counter in the very beginning at the entrance of the temple at a minimal charge.
  • The temple is big and beautiful. Electronic devices including mobile phones are not allowed inside (can be kept at counter at minimal fee). The deities are very beautiful
  • 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
  • Janmbhoomi where Lord Krishna was born...the temple is so beautiful #everywhere peace inside the temple...you can't bring your mobile inside you have to submit near the gate...
