Create an itinerary including Krishna Janmasthan Temple Complex
Feel the power of ancient mythology and powerful traditions at Krishna Janmasthan Temple Complex, one of the most sacred Hindu temples believed to have been constructed at the birthplace of Krishna. Standing on holy grounds as a countless reincarnation of the first shrine believed to be 5,000 years old, the present-day pale red structure was completed in 1965. Impressive images of deities with vivid colors feature all over the large gardens. Lord Krishna’s chariot pulled by four white horses, and Shiva prancing atop of a seven-headed king cobra are among the highlights. See the cage-like shrine behind a mosque marking Krishna’s exact birthplace.

  • Must must visit ... Amazingly beautiful. But in winter season or best prefered is evening time... After 5... Lighting is very beautiful. The various status of different incidences are Even more attractive. Take care of closing time...
  • Beautiful Place. There was a lot of Security there. You need to submit your mobile phone and bags outside for Rs 2 per piece. There is checking on entering the temple. First, we visited the Main temple where there is beautiful Murtis of Radha and Krishna. There were beautiful Hymns in the temple. After that we went to visit the Cave, there was a entry ticket of 10 Rs. Then, we visited the Corridor where the Krishna was born and his parents were held captive by his uncle Kans.
