This is the birth location of Lord Krishna. Apart from the temple, another Main attraction is the cave built in the shape of Kaliya Naag. The temple is well maintained and very peaceful.

Sri Krishna Janmasthan is simply the Most important place to visit in Mathura trip, as you would get to know where Lord Krishna was born. Though you're not allowed to click any pics inside but the memories stay with you forever.

The actual birth place of Lord Krishna i.e. the imprisonment cell of Kansa's kingdom is a must-see place in Mathura.

The underground Jail where Krishna was born, the upper portion where MAYA appeared after being thrown as a child by Kansa, the original Tulsi Vraksh - need I say more. Do not miss the temple built within the same complex as the Janmbhoomi - nice views from the top. Also do indulge in the Rabri Prasad - the best in... More
