GOKUL

About 15 km of the south-east of Mathura connected by a metalled road is Gokul, a suburb of the inland town of Mahavan on the bank of the Yamuna. This is the town where an infant Lord Krishna was brought up in secrecy by his foster mother Yashoda. Situated on the banks of the Yamuna, Gokul is frequented by pilgrims, especially during Janmashtami and Annakut festival. The place is also associated with Saint Vallabhacharyaji who lived here. Points of interest here include the Shri Thakurani Ghat, Nanda Bhavan, Raman Reti and the Rangbihariji Temple.
