Kosi Overview

Kosi, also known as Kosi Kalan, is a small town in the Mathura district of the northern state of Uttar Pradesh. Located on the Agra-Delhi highway, it is at a distance of about 100 km from Delhi and about the same from the city of Agra. Kosi is an economic and industrial hub of Uttar Pradesh with quite a few industries and factories. Due to the growing number of industries in Kosi, it has now categorized as an industrial area of the country.

Being close to the important religious towns of Mathura and Vrindavan, Kosi is also a cultural hub with its share of folklore and tradition. In fact, the place is popularly referred to as ‘Braj Bhoomi’, which means the holy city of Braj. Kosi derives its name from the Sanskrit word ‘kosh’ which means treasury, since at one point of time the town served as the treasury of Nand Raja.

Kosi is located almost at the very junction of the three northern states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan. As a result, the culture and way of life here is a unique blend of the three regions. Its strategic location also makes it a centre of trade and business between the different states. Connectivity to Kosi is quite good and there are regular and frequent bus services and railway services which enable people to commute easily in and out of the city.

The Temple of Nagar Devi is an important temple in the town and devotees come here from all around to offer prayers to the Goddess. Bisakha Kund, Maya Kund, and Gomati Kund are three holy tanks in the town of Kosi. Kokilavan, which is a dedicated site where devotees of Lord Shani come to offer their prayers, is located close to Kosi. Devotees from across the country as well as outside come to Kosi to visit Kokilavan.

Being located in the northern plains, the weather in Kosi is hot during the summers and pleasant in winter. During the summer months, the temperature rises quite a bit and it becomes uncomfortable, especially during the daytime. The winter season is however ideal for tourists to roam around and explore the place. It is therefore best to visit Kosi during the months of October to March.
