Mathura is spiritual and religious town in Uttar Pradesh positioned along the banks of the river Yamuna. About fifty kilometres north west of Agra, and one hundred forty five kilometres south-east of Delhi, it is the twin town of Vrindavan.Other popular towns nearby are Govardhan and Gokul. In Hindu mythology, Mathura is believed to be the birthplace of Lord Krishna, hence called the Shri Krishna Janam bhoomi. The Kesava Deo Temple was built on the location of Krishna's birthplace (an underground prison). Mathura was the capital of the dominion of Surasena, dominated by Kamsa, the maternal uncle of Krishna. Both Vrindavan & Mathura are called the Braj Bhumi also giving one an experience of the devout heritage of India. Just around 3 hoirs drive from Camp Wild Dhauj at the Aravali valley, one can do a day trip to mathura & Vrindavan or combine it with Agra as an overnight trip. We will be very happy to add this as an extension to your package while at Camp Wild.
