The Shree Dwarikadhish Temple is also located in Mathura, around 2 km from the Shri Krishna Janmasthan Temple, and on the banks of the Yamuna river, near the famous Vishram Ghat.

This temple is dedicated to Shree Krishna, as the Maharaja of Dwarka, which was the kingdom where Shree Krishna relocated his people from Mathura, and thus he and the temple are called Dwarkadish.

Along with Shree Krishna, you will also see the statue of Radha, and this temple was built in 1815 by the businessman Seth Gokuldas Parikh. So if you are in Mathura, first visit the Janmasthan Temple and then our Dwarkadhisha.

3. Banke Bihari ji Temple

The Banke Bihari Temple, located in Vrindavan, is one of the most visited temples in both Mathura and Vrindavan. The statue of this temple is a combined form of Radha & Krishna.

The idol of the temple is believed to have such a powerful attraction that your eyes might never be satisfied, and most of our guests visit this temple more than once every year.

The history of the temple tells us about Swami Haridas, a Brahmin and musician, whose devotion led him to the darshan of both Radha and Krishna. As per his request, both Radha and Krishna merged, and an idol was formed which is today the main idol of the Banke Bihari Ji Temple.

Temple timings are 7:45 am to noon and then from 4:30 pm to 9:30 pm.

Temple Timing: 7:30 am to 12:00 pm and 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm

Nidhivan vrindavan

4. Nidhivan

Nidhivan is a garden & temple located in Vrindavan. This place used to be a jungle area where Shri Krishna used to come and dance with Radha and other gopis.

Nidhivan’s history is also connected with the Banke Bihari temple. As the legend says, Sant Haridas, whose devotion gave us the beautiful view of Banke Bihari, saw Radha & Krishna at Nidhivan. The main idol of the Banke Bihari temple was in Nidhivan and later sent to the Banke Bihari Temple.

There is also a mystery about Nidhivan: no one is allowed to enter Nidhivan at night. Locals believe Radha & Krishna come here every night to dance, and if one is found checking on that, it may bring bad luck.

Temple Timing: 8:00 am to 7:00 pm

Govind Dev Temple vrindavan up

7. Govind Dev Ji Temple

The Govind Dev Ji Temple in Vrindavan is devoted to Shri Krishna, in the form of Govind Dev Ji, primarily worshipped in Rajasthan.

The temple’s construction is attributed to Jaipur/Amer Maharaja Man Singh in the 16th century. This is evident as the temple is built using red stone sourced from Rajasthan.

Ironically, the temple was constructed during the reign of Mughal Emperor Akbar, but its four stories were later demolished during the time of Akbar’s great-grandson, Aurangzeb.

At that time, the main idol of the temple was taken back to Jaipur, where it now resides in the Govind Dev Ji Temple within the City Palace Jaipur.
