Lord Krishna - He is easily the most popular person here. Every square foot of Mathura-Vrindavan is wrapped in timeless devotion to Lord Krishna, the evergreen hero of Hinduism, the lover of Radha, the cowherd-prince and the re-incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Mathura without Lord Krishna is like Bethlehem without Christ. Welcome to Brajbhoomi or Krishna-land.
Leave Delhi for Mathura and on arrival visit various Hindu temples most of which are dedicated to Lord Krishna most prominent among them is the Dwarkadheesh temple. Please note that most of the temples are closed for visitors from 12 noon to 3 P. M, so in order to have darshans you must leave Delhi early in the morning. .
