Amazing place to celebrate Holi!
Mar 2020 • Friends
I feel so lucky to have experienced celebrating Holi at the birthplace of Krishna in Mathura. I am a female and went here with two female friends and we were fine. We were never touched inappropriately as I have read from a few others. We only attended from 9:45am to 11am, so it may be that we got out before everyone got drunk. There were a few other females in attendance as well.
The temple floors were covered in chalk and water from the water balloons. There was plenty of singing and dancing set by a few men in the center who were on a raised platform. It was amazing to be a part of this.

Krishna Temple in the heart of Mathura
Dec 2019
A must visit temple. Enjoy ride of an Auto Rikshaw to visit this temple. En-route observing busy streets of Mathura is another experience in itself. Krishna Murti is enchanting. After temple visit, do visit local markets around temple. Do taste rabdi, samosas and local snacks.

2nd most visited temple at Mathura dedicated to Lord Krishna , built in 19th Century with colorful interiors
Nov 2019
This is the 2nd most visited temple of Lord Krishna in Mathura after the Janmasthan, located in heart of the city, approx 3-4 Kms from Mathura Station & 10 Kms from Vrindavan. It was built in 19th Century & has colorful pillars & pictures depicting various aspects of Lord Krishna as Shrinathji. Its usually very crowded, hence beware of pick-pockets. Vishram Ghat along Yamuna river is just 500 m away where Yamuna Aarti is conducted at Sunset & boat ride can also be enjoyed. The temple is reached along a 500 m long narrow lane, usually on E-Rickshaw's.

Terrible Experience..Temple is full of thieves
Oct 2019
Very awful experience yesterday (28th Oct), my chain with mangalsutra was snatched in the temple premises during aarthi. The temple officials ignored when we raised a compliant (not sure if they are also involved in this).At last, we had to go to police station around 10 pm with my 75+ aged mother to file a complaint.

I won't recommend visiting this place, unless the officials take strict measures against this.

Its a warning for all first-time visitors .. please take care of your valuables( kindly avoid taking them to this temple if possible)

This temple is one of the oldest temples in Mathura. Darshan of Lord Krishna is beautiful, enchanting and peaceful. It is next to the old market place.

Mathura. .. the place of Lord Krishna. Your visit to Mathura is incomplete if you don't visit renowned temples here, this is one such place. It is located in very interiors of Holy gate, if you are new to this place you need to ask people for the right way otherwise you can take a paddle rickshaw or ride your own 2-wheeler. Cars can't go in the small lanes of the local market where the temple is situated.
No shoe stand so you have to take care of your footwear on your own.
Don't fall for pandas and any begger over here. They all will try their level best to extract money from your pocket.
The place is crowdy but you will find peace after the darshan. You can sit in mandir verandah for some time.
Loo facility is also there.
There is a ghat near the temple (Vishram ghat) where aarti is performed in the evening and a lot of people witness this. Boating facility is also available there.
In the local market outside the temple you can purchase lots of items and clothes.

2nd most visited temple in Mathura
Jun 2019
Situated on the river Yamuna banks, it is the 2nd most visited temple in Mathura. The temple is built on Rajasthani architecture, having colourful beautiful ceiling paintings depicting various aspects of Lord Krishna life. The temple was built by a firm devotee of the Lord, Seth Gokul Das Parikh in the year 1814. After climbing the few steep steps, we enter inside of the magnificent temple, the very first thing that we see are the five rows of beautifully carved pillars, which divide the whole courtyard into three different segments; the right lane is for women and the extreme left one for men. In the centre lane, the entry is prohibited other than for those having VIP pass. A huge box is kept there for dropping offering for the Lord. One can also take a parikarma (round) of the main temple. There are several small temples in the complex.
