Imagine Krishna's Presence

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.

Good to see the temple but beware of the pandas. They try to get more money from u in the form of donation like 1100, 2100 and etc. Give on ur own wish. The temple is good and no need to be in hurry.

Lots to see and... More
