Birthplace of Lord Krishna, the temple city of Mathura in Uttar Pradesh is flooded with devotees 365 days a year. The alleys and by lanes of this 2500 years old city are abundant with idols of Lord Krishna, smell of ‘Peda’ prasadam wafts through the air and ears ring with bhajans in praise of the Lord. Today, Mathura is bustling with pilgrims and a lot of foreign tourists who come in search of divinity. Thousands of tourists make a beeline to Mathura during Janmashtami and Holi. No visit to the city is complete without a visit to the Ghats for the aarti or the nearby town of Vrindavan. There are 25 Ghats along the Yamuna and a not so quiet boat ride is a must. Major attractions include the Dwarkadhish temple, archaeological museum and the Gita Mandir. Jama Masjid and the Katra Masjid, built by Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb is an example of the multicultural ethos of India and are not to be missed. Other nearby places of interest include Govardhan hill, Barsana, Gokul and Nandgaon that you visit on India day tour of Mathura.
