Shri Dwarkadhish Temple, Mathura, Uttar Pradesh

The vehicle has to be stopped at Vishram ghat and we have to proceed further to continue ‘Braj Chaurasi Kos Yatra’ by walking about half a km. Vishram ghat at Mathura is 11 km from Vrindavan.

Dwarkashish Temple was about to close after afternoon prayers. We were told if the bulb outside the main gate of the temple is ON it indicates the temple is open. If OFF the gates of the temple are closed. We were walking fast and from far we saw the bulb above the entrance gate ON. We are lucky – said all of us.

Holi songs were in full swing by Braj Fag Dwarkesh Rasiya Mandal. After praying Dwarkadhish I stop to watch. Traditional and Electrifying effect – I felt. I enjoyed a lot. The time was short as we have to tour many temples I have to leave but what I felt was if enough time for 31 days one can be present and watch traditional Holi songs with immense happiness within this temple of Braj.

And we move towards Vishram ghat to offer prayers. Vishram ghat is surrounded by numerous other ghat as well as temples.
