We did Agra - Mathura - Vrindavan - Bharatpur in the month of December 2016. The entire trip was done in public transport. This blog will cover Mathura & Vrindavan.
We reached Mathura by train and we had our room booking in Vrindavan. We took a share rickshaw from Mathura. Eventhough the distance is only 12 kms. It takes more than 40 minutes to reach since the roads are narrow and there is lot of traffic.
Expected a serene atmosphere and blissful experience since it is a holy land but it was completely opposite. The temples are all commercialized, dazzling in lights and more touristic.
