Getting the Best Out of Mathura by:David H. Urmann
The Mathura is known to be the land of Krishna. It was said to be that Mathura and Krishna are meant to be inseparable. The bond stems back from the time the Lord Krishna was born in Mathura. This is the place where he had lived his life from birth to death. Mathura is always reminded of the people of Krishna.
Krishna Janambhoomi temple is one important place in Mathura that tourists must go to. It is in the heart of the city. This was supposed to be in the birth place of Krishna but not made possible. The temple had just stored a stone slab of the birth place of Krishna. Another tourist spot is the Dwarkadhist temple which is a way to Yamuna. This is a brimming tourist spot all year round.
The famous Kusum Sarovar is the famous tank where milkmaids have flirted with Krishna. They have done this by giving him flowers. The government Museum also has its important role. This houses the Kushana period statues. Most of the statues here are properties of Gandhara School. These Gandhara School statues include excursions and the statues of Barsana, Nandgaon and Vrindavan. Everything placed in this museum has some sort of connection to the life of Krishna.
