Krishna Temple

Krishna Temple

The temple of Krishna Janmasthan, Krishna Janambhoomi or Kesava Deo Temple is situated in the city of Mathura, which lies in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The temple is recognized as one of the most sacred places as it is the land where Lord Krishna was born. The temple was constructed over the prison in the province of Mathura, considered as the birth place of Lord Krishna. The temple was built by Raja Vir Sinh Bundela of Orchaa, during the reign of Jahangir.

It is believed that at the very place, the first temple was constructed around 5,000 years back by Vajranabha, the great-grandson of Lord Krishna. Then, the next temple at the very place was constructed during the time of the Gupta Emperor Chandragupta II around 400 AD. In 1017 AD, Mahmud of Ghazni destroyed the temple along with several other Hindu and Buddhist temples in this very holy city of Mathura.

Following this, there was another temple, which was built here in 1150. In the 16th century, during the reign of Sikander Lodi, again the temple was destroyed. During the reign of Jahangir, Raja Veer Singh Bundela of Orchha erected out another temple at an elevation of about 75 m and the making of this temple costs around Rs 3.3 million.
