Bhagwan Shree Krishn Janm Sthal

Bhagwan Shree Krishn Janm Sthal at Mathura

Karagaar (Prison) is the place where Bhagwan Shree Krishn took birth to Devki maa and Shri Vasudev; in the Dwapur Yug and was immediately carried away in the dark night by Nand Baba to Gokul.

शुभ श्री कृष्ण जन्म अष्टमी 🙏🙏 रोहिणी नक्षत्र में आधि रात को कंस के कारागार में जन्मे थे हमारे प्रिय श्री कृष्ण। 🙇🏻‍♀️🙇🏻‍♀️

जय श्री कृष्ण 🙏🙏

On my visit here, I found the security to be very extensive, which did not make sense as there are several super sacred spots in Vraj which have been left to deteriorate and vanish. The only reason for this high alert security as I later realised, is because of the mosque built adjacent to this mandir.

The Shree Krishn Janm bhumi complex today:

Under the chairmanship of Swami Shri Akhandananda Saraswati, the then Vice President of the Trust, a group of enthusiastic young volunteers of Mathura started clearing the mounds and filling up the pits through Shram Daan on the auspicious day, 15th October, 1953.

Later, the work continued for several years with great perseverance under the leadership of Shri Babulal Bajaj and Shri Phool Chand Khandelwal.

Thus began the restoration and construction of the karagaar (prison) and the magnificent Shri Krishna Janmasthan complex, which was completed in February 1982 and what we see today.

This is the main entry gate today, where the security is enormous. No mobile phones are also allowed and the checking at the gate is very high

 The sacred mandir that stands today is the 5th or 6th remake of the original destroyed by the Moghul’s over and over again.

Jai Shree Radhe Krishn

 कृष्‍ण जन्‍मस्‍थान का संक्षिप्त इतिहास 🙏

आज मथुरा में जिस जगह पर श्री कृष्‍ण जन्‍मस्‍थान के दर्शन है, वह पांच हजार साल पहले राजा कंस का कारागार हुआ करता था।

रोहिणी नक्षत्र में आधी रात को भगवान कृष्‍ण का जन्‍म इसी कारागार में हुआ था।

कटरा केशवदेव को ही कृष्ण जन्मभूमि माना है।

राजा बज्रनाभ जो श्री कृष्ण के प्रपौत्र थे, यहाँ पहला मंदिर बनवाया था।

इतिहास में लिखा है की दूसरी बार राजा विक्रमादित्य ने मंदिर का निर्माण करा था। राजा चंद्रगुप्त विक्रमादित्य द्वारा बनवाए गए इस भव्य मंदिर पर महमूद गजनवी ने सन १०१७ ई. में आक्रमण करा था। उस ने इसे लूटने के बाद पूर्ण रूप से तोड़ दिया था।

तीसरी बार राजा विजयपाल देव ने इस मंदिर का निर्माण करा जो सिकंदर लोदी ने तोड़ा।

चौथी बार इस मंदिर का निर्माण राजा वीर सिंह देव बुंदेला ने करा; जो औरंगजेब ने १६६९ में तुड़वाया

और इसके एक भाग पर ईदगाह का निर्माण करा।
