Mathura is considered to be one of India’s holiest destinations. It is home to a remarkable number of ancient temples that attract hordes of visitors through out the year. One such temple is the Potara Kund.
Potara Kund denotes “Holy gate”. The gate like structure is built of sandstone in old Hindu style architecture. The complex is surrounded by beautifully constructed temples and shrines dedicated to Hindu gods and goddesses.
It is said that the Potara Kund is built on the spot where Lord Krishna’s mother washed his clothes. The step like structure is a scenic location where pilgrims, priests and tourists often sit and offer prayers.
