Sri Krishna Janmasthan Overview

Ranked 1 of 28 sightseeing in Mathura
The Shri Krishna Janmasthan at Mathura is the most important site for the followers of Lord Krishna and that of Hinduism. They believe that it is here that the Lord took birth as a human being to get rid of the evil.
The temple here can be divided into three parts the Garbha-Griha (actual site of birth), Keshavadeva and the Bhagvata Bhavan. Another temple, dedicated to the Ashthabhuja Ma Yogmaya stands near the entrance of the sanctum sanctorum.
The Shri Krishna Janmasthan is a must visit destination for the devotees. The temple is under high security and hence you may be subjected to checking before being allowed inside the temple premises.

Very nice place

It is good place to visit. But do not visit in summer. And they don't allowed any electronic items ... Mobiles ... Bags with you so don't take it. Really good place ... Good atmosphere ... They really maintain it. You have to remove your shoes most of time ...

Krishna Janmbhumi - Must visit

Krishna Janmbhumi is in centre of city near bus stand.. Grandeur and holiness of place is enough to justify your presence at such place... Lovely moving jhankis and darshan of laddu gopal fills you with positivity.. Thali offered at minimal cost is also one time delicacy..

A pure sacred place, must visit

This place is the real Birthplace of Lord Krishna. There is a stone bed which is said to be the birth bed of Lord krishna in Karagrah. You will have peace and sensation when you will be there. Rest in the complex there are many temples, a cave and Jhankis. If you are a devotee of Lord Krishna this place is a must visit. Do not carry any pen drive, camera, Mobile and hand bag as these are not allowed in complex and you have to wait in queue of cloakroom unnecessary.

The Shrine a must visit

So this is the place where you can still see the jail chamber where Lord Krishna birth took place. Though a huge area of this temple premises has been captured by masjid, there is a single narrow way to enter the birthplace chamber. The above photo is the main temple. Janmbhumi is situated just 2. 5 km away from Mathura Junction and normal auto rickshaw fare is 15 to 20 rupees in shared and if you go personally decide according to distance. Mobile phones not allowed inside premises, please mind.

Birth place of Lord Krishna

We all know birth of lord Krishna was in a jail because his father and mother was jailed by Kansa. When you enter after hard checking, you have to put your shoe at specific place. Then you proceed for Janmasthan and first of all you will enter in a so called cell where Krishna was born and that is why this place is called Sri Krishna Janmasthan. Easy visit, no problem. Must visit place, camera and mobile are not allowed.

Good holy place to visit but be careful of Pandas

Good holy place to visit. Everyone should visit the spiritual place, it proves the Indian Mythology and Firms the belief of Hindu religion. But as discussed the Pandas to satisfy their own hunger and thirst use to loot the innocent pilgrims and also breach the belief and faith by which they drive to visit such places.
