Mathura is an extremely important pilgrimage city where Lord Krishna was born 5,000 years ago. It is 150km south of Delhi and 14km from Vrindavan. Mathura is on the main train line between Delhi and Agra.

Mathura is the center of Braja Mandala. Its parikrama path is 15 km (9 miles). The two main places to visit here are Krishna Janmasthan (the appearance place of Krishna) and Vishram Ghata.

Many pastimes from the Srimad Bhagavatam and other Puranas took place in Mathura. Ambarish Maharaja waited at Ambarish-tila for Durvasa Muni to return, from being chased across the universe by Lord Vishnu%u2019s disc (cakra). At Bali-tila, Bali Maharaja performed his great sacrifice to take over the universe. Lord Vamanadeva begged three steps of land from Bali Maharaja at this place. Narada Muni instructed Dhruva Maharaja in Mathura. Ravana performed austerities to acquire his mystic powers here. About 350m north of Visrama Ghata, on the bank of the Yamuna, is the old Kamsa Tila Fort.
