Vrindavan and Mathura are the most important places of pilgrimage for devotees of Krishna. Just an hour drive from Agra, these 2 towns are just 10km away from each other.
According to Bhagavata Purana, Krishna was born in Mathura and spent His childhood in Vrindavan. He was born without a sexual union, but by divine “mental transmission” from the mind of Vasudeva into the womb of Devaki. Based on scriptural details and astrological calculations, Krishna was born around 3228 BCE and his birthday known as Janmashtami.
The most important place we visited was Krishna’s prison cell, popularly known as ‘Garbha Griha’, is the exact place where Krishna was born. The energy inside the room was very-very strong. Blissful.
Camera and any metal objects are not allowed inside temples, security are very strict. We kept our camera in the lockers outside temple entrance.
We didn’t stay overnight, on the same day we left to Haridwar.
“Man has yet to grow to that height where he can be a contemporary of Krishna’s. Krishna is still beyond man’s understanding; he continues to puzzle and battle us. Only in some future time will we be able to understand him and appreciate his virtues.” Osho.
