Mathura

Known as Shri Krishna Janma-Bhoomi, the city is the birth place of Lord Krishna at the centre of Braj. According to Mahabharata, it was the capital of the Surasena kingdom, ruled by Kansa, Shri Krishna’s maternal uncle. It is a holy city for Hinduism with many historical places and religious importance and numerous little spots in the area that still reverberate with the enchantment of Shri Krishna. Anciently it was an economic hub, but today it has 2.5 million residents. Avoid people who try to help you as most of them are fake.
