Krishna Janmabhoomi Temple, Mathura

4.4
Believed to stand at the actual birthplace of Lord Krishna, Krishna Janmabhoomi Temple ranks as the most popular spot for Hindu devotees and features many festivals year-round. Mingle with pilgrims and see the original stone-walled prison cell, a cave in which Krishna was kept. Situated on a huge campus and with curious architecture, this 1,500-year-old temple exudes the very essence of Hinduism, as the numerous shrines built on this spot testify. Expect tight security, and plan to leave your electronic devices outside.
