Dedicated to Lord Krishna and his scripture Gita, the holiest book of Hinduism, Gita Mandir is a quaint and beautifully decorated temple. Located away from the hustle and bustle of Mathura’s main centre, the temple is well-known for Gita Stambh, 18 marble pillars on which the whole of Gita’s verses have been carved. Constructed by the corporate giant Birlas, the temple has some beautiful carvings and paintings to its credit.

Inside the temple are the beautiful idols of Lord Krishna, Lord Vishnu, Lord Rama, Goddess Sita and Goddess Lakshmi. The temple is elaborately decorated on the festive occasions like Holi and Janmashthmi. Tourists visiting the holy Mathur Town make it a point to offer prayers at the temple. A number of shops selling items of worship and sweets are located outside the temple.

Road: The temple is located on the outskirts of the holy town of Mathura. The road connecting Mathura with Vrindavan offers easy access to the place. You can walk from any part of Mathura to reach the temple, though options like auto-rickshaws and cycle-rickshaws are also available.

Railway: About 10 km. from the temple is the Mathura Junction railway station, offering excellent rail connectivity to various cities. From here, hire an auto-rickshaw or a taxi to visit Gita Mandir.

Airway: Delhi Airport is about 150 km. from the temple. Frequent buses ply from Delhi to the town of Mathura. You can prefer to hire a taxi for a more convenient road journey to reach the temple.
