The cradle of Krishna Lila

Normally pilgrims start visiting the shrines after taking bath in the sacred waters of Yamuna. like the Ganges, Yamuna too has many ghats, and they are reputed both for offering pindas and taking bath to purge of all the dross and gross sticking on to bodies since birth. The waters of Yamuna are imbued with especial sanctity that a sip of a spoonful is equal to that of a dip in the Gangas. Among the many, the following deserve visitation.


The story goes that once Yama, the god of Death paid a, visit to his sister Yamuna. It was Karthika sukla dvitia. Affectionate Yamuna pleased him with several kinds of delicious dishes of special kind. Overpowered by the treatment and superfine food, he gave her the boon that anyone who take bath on that auspicious day called Yamadvitia, thereafter in the river Yamuna would be-relieved of going to Yamaloka, despite multiple unforgivable sins committed in the past. Becoming sin-proof, they go straight to heaven. What a merit! And how magnanimous is that god of Death!! So visiting is a MUST and bathing, an indispensable necessity.
