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.
