Description

Proceed for a day visit to Mathura, said to be the birthplace of Lord Krishna. In fact, an ancient temple stands here, right at the spot of Lord Krishna’s birth. This holy city is amongst the seven sacred places in Hinduism. Pilgrims visit Mathura in overwhelming numbers, especially on Janmashtami (Lord Krishna’s birthday). The present structure was rebuilt in the 20th century. The Dwarkadheesh Temple remains one of the oldest and largest temples in Mathura. It is an astounding work of architecture and houses the black marble deity is of Lord Dwarkadheesh (a form of Lord Krishna) and also the white marble deity of goddess Radhika. Return back to Agra and stop en route to Sikandra, located in a large walled garden on the road to Agra. It has a magnificent gateway covered with floral and geometrical arabesque decoration in white and coloured marble. Four elegant minarets adorn the corners.
