Braj Parikrama

The rainy month of Bhadon, the month when Lord Krishna was born, is a time of colorful celebrations. The famous Braj Parikrama, a pilgrimage of all the places in Braj associated with Krishna, is undertaken during this time.

The yatra extends to Kotban to the north of Mathura, to Nandgaon, Barsana and the Govardhan Hill to the west and south-west of the city and to the banks of the Yamuna to the east, where the Baldeo Temple is located. Colorful melas and performances of the Raaslila (a depiction of the exploits of Lord Krishna) are organized.
