Day 1 – Trip to Mathura

Some clarifications first
I am not a frequent traveler type. These two adjoining trips are just by coincidence.

Mathura station
We got down at Mathura station at 7:30 am. The station is not at all clean, and it was a relief when we got out of the station. Our first mode of transport was a chartered six-seater. The driver was quite helpful with our luggage and finding the lodge address.

First darshan of Yamuna Maiyya
We went to Vishraam Ghaat in the afternoon, where we had an amazing view of the sacred Yamuna river. The water level was quite high and it the view was very scenic. This is the place where the morning and evening aarti happens. But right now, the activity level was very low. Our official mode of transport now was a cycle-rickshaw that carries two people at a time.

The travel itinerary starts
We went to Krishna Janma Bhoomi in the evening and attended the evening aarti at Yamunaji. But as cameras and cellphones are not allowed at the former place, we did not carry any photographing device. Hence, missed clicking that part.

Food factor
The lodge where we are staying has a facility of having food there. The food was great, and was like home made food. Last time when we had visited Mathura (about five years back), we really had a tough time finding a good food outlet.
