Mathura and Vrindavan are two cities popularly revered for their association with the life of Lord Krishna. The neighbouring hamlets and towns also continue to buzz with the legend of the Lord who plays a central role in the great epic of the Mahabharata. Together, Mathura, Vrindavan and its surrounding area are commonly called Brajbhoomi or 'The Land of Lord Krishna'. This tour will take you through Mathura, the birthplace of Lord Krishna. Here, you will visit the Dwarkadhish Temple and Krishna Janambhoomi, a temple constructed on the spot where Lord Krishna, according to legend, was born in what was then a prison. You will also see the long line of picturesque ghats - with their steps leading down to the Yamuna, arched gateways and temple spires extending along the right bank of the same river. Merely 15 k.m. away from Mathura lies the city of Vrindavan where the Lord spent a majority of his early life. Here, you will visit the Madan Mohan Temple which is the oldest temple in the city. You will also tour the 1864 temple of Banke-Bihari and the famous Radha Vallabh Temple built by the Radha Vallabh Sect.
