Among the foundations of the mural-filled Kesava Deo temple complex is a small, bare room with a slab of rock on which Krishna is said to have been born, some 3500 years ago. Near Katra Masjid , a mosque built by Aurangzeb in 1661 on the site of a temple he ordered to be destroyed.

The mosque is now guarded round the clock by soldiers to prevent a repeat of the tragic events at Ayodhya in 1992. Cameras and mobiles must be checked here.
