About Mathura

MathuraMathura is one of the most ancient cities of India and is one of the holiest of religious places in the Hindu mythology. Situated at the bank of river Yamuna in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, Mathura is one of the prominent destinations of pilgrimage. It is said that Lord Krishna was born here at Mathura. The place is famous for not just its religious connotation but for its temples, folklores and beautiful river banks. 

Mathura is only 146 km southeast of Delhi. Communication is not at all a problem as you will be easily getting car rental facilities and it will not take more than a couple of hours to cover the distance. If you have come to visit Delhi, your tour will never be complete without a visit to Mathura, famed for its Krishnajanmabhumi Mandir, Sati Burj and Vishram Ghat. The Vishram Ghat is a bank of the river Yamuna where it is said that Lord Krishna rested after vanquishing the wicked  demon Kamsha. The picturesque beauty of the river bank is so enchanting that you will simply be mesmerized when in the evening, thousands of small oil lit flames float on the river.

Mathura is 58 km from the city of Agra and is easily accessible by road. If you have a spiritual bent of mind make sure that you visit this wonderful city full of mysticism that will fascinate you with its beauty.
