Reckoned to be the home of young Krishna where he was raised in secrecy, Gokul is a popular religious site in Uttar Pradesh. Neighbouring the famous pilgrimage destination of Mathura, Gokul comes to life on the Hindu festivals of Janmashtami and Annakut. Thus, visiting this tourism place during these festivals is the best thing to do. In Gokul, the top attraction is Nanda Bhawan, the home of the foster father of Lord Krishna. The house is where the young Krishna and his brother Balaram grew up together.
Gokul is blessed with the presence of Rangbihariji Temple, where the main attraction is the idol that is believed to be exactly how famous saint Gyandasji described Lord Krishna looked. Another must-see is a religious site of Raman Reti where the God in his younger day used to play in the sand. Devotees today have the opportunity to roll in the same sand to seek the blessing of Lord Krishna. Shri Thakurani Ghat is another sacred place to visit in order to complete your religious tour in Gokul.
