Vrindavana And Mathura -The Land of Krishna

Vrindavana and Mathura are the most vital spots of journey for enthusiasts of Krishna. Krishna was conceived in Mathura and spent His adolescence in Vrindavan. There are more than 5,000 sanctuaries in Vrindavan. The city of Mathura, in Uttar Pradesh, the core of Brajabhumi, is found 140 km south-east of Delhi and 60 km north-west of Agra. Covering a zone of around 3,800 sq. km.Brajabhumi can be separated into two particular units – the eastern part in the trans-Yamuna tract with spots like Gokul, Mahavan, Baldeo, Mat and Bajna and the western side of the Yamuna covering the Mathura area that envelops Vrindavan, Govardhan, Kusum Sarovar, Barsana and Nandgaon (Nandagram). Ruler Krishna is the most well known individual here. Each square foot of Mathura-Vrindavan is wrapped in ageless commitment to Lord Krishna, the interminable saint, the darling of Radha and the cowherd-ruler. Mathura without Lord Krishna is similar to Bethlehem without Jesus. Welcome to Brajabhumi, Krishna's territory. 

An antiquated city whose sources blur into the fogs of history, Mathura's key area at the cross streets of different exchange courses – that went westwards to West Asia and the Roman Empire; northwards, through Taxila, Pushkalavati and Purushapur to Central Asia and the Silk Route and eastwards to China – guaranteed its position as a focal point of exchange and a meeting point for fluctuated societies.
