Dedicated to the King of Dwarka (an ancient holy city in Gujarat), Lord Krishna, Dwarkadhish (or Dwarkadheesh) Temple of Mathura is a famous pilgrimage destination for the Krishna devotees from across the world. Constructed by an adherent Krishna follower Seth Gokul Das Parikh in the 19th century, the temple depicts beautiful local architecture and its interiors are adorned with spectacular carvings and murals.

Lord Krishna is worshipped in the temple, along with his beloved Radha. There are idols of many other Hindu deities as well. Resting near the bank of holy River Yamuna, the temple dons beautiful adornments during festivals like Holi and Janmashthmi. The town of Mathura being a part of the Braj region (where Lord Krishna was born and spent his childhood) boasts of many other religious sites. Together with Vrindavan and Gokul, it is thronged by uncountable pilgrims round the year.

Road: The temple is located in the busy heart of Mathura. Roads leading to the temple experience huge congestions throughout the day. It is better to hire a cycle-rickshaw or walk to reach the temple.

Railway: Mathura Junction Railway Station is about 5 km. from the temple. You can hire a cab to reach the temple connected by busy roads to the station. A better option would be to travel by a cycle-rickshaw.

Airway: Delhi’s International Airport is about 160 km. away from the temple. You can board a state transport bus from Delhi to Mathura. However, a more convenient and time-saving option is to hire a taxi.
