Kesava Deo Temple

Top choice hindu temple in Mathura

In the most important temple complex in Mathura, the small, bare room known as Shri Krishna Janambhoomi marks the spot where Krishna is said to have been born in prison more than 5000 years ago. The much larger main temple is decked with murals depicting scenes from Krishna's life, and houses several statues of the god and his consort, Radha. Destroyed and rebuilt a number of times over the past thousand years, the current temple was erected in the 1950s.
