  • Very crowded Temple, where one accesses by stairs, which is composed of several buildings in a garden. Some elements are very kitch. Difficult to know what the different places are (all with access by staircases) you have to take off your shoes. Krishna would have been born in prison; You can see the place. There are shops in the enclosure, where the bags and photos are forbidden.

  • Holy place birth place of lord Krishna. Amazing experience with great atmosphere because there is a magic in enchanting of people Hare Rama Hare Krishna. Tourist attraction of devotees. Devotees from other countries visits most of the time. it was a incredible experience there that there is no permission to stay inside of the prison of lord Krishna but the female foreigner(devotee) were feeding her child milk. that emotion of mother and child was great. Must visit this place in a life. Another one important thing is that security has high level. You cannot take a single pin inside. Mobile phones, Cameras and other equipment cannot take inside. Stay aware while buying merchandise inside the temple because they will tell you high price you must have to bargain while purchasing any thing. Overall feel the peaceful breath inside the temple.
