Although Mathura is known for its ancient sites and religious places of worship, the Gita Mandir is a more recent addition, built by one of the leading industrial families of the country, the Birla Family.
The Gita Mandir has walls inscribed with teachings and original texts from the Hindu holy book – the Bhagwad Gita. It is a beautiful structure with exquisite carvings of the prime Hindu Gods and Goddesses.
Tourists flock to the site to offer prayers and worship the various Hindu deities. The exquisite paintings and architecture pay tribute to the original Hindu culture, tradition, and style of the past.
The temple is open every day of the week. On auspicious occasions like Holi or Janmashtami special prayers are held and the temple is beautifully decorated and lit up.
