Day trip NDLS _ MTJ _NDLS
If travelling in group .
Accomodation :
rather than Staying at MTJ it would be better to Halt at New Delhi . .
(as we did) .

Best mode of transport :
Take TAJ Exp (12280) from New Delhi . to MTJ . or any other train (Current availability will be there For most of the train)
After reaching till 9am .
Take Auto /bus . . and visit the temple .
Points of interest :.
There are lot of temple in this area .
and near by vicinity.
It would be better to visit . Only A few .of it. i.e.
*Krishna Janam bhoomi at Mathura
*Iskcon temple at Mathura
*Banke Bihari lal temple at Vrindavan
*Iskcon temple at Vrindavan
* Prem mandir.
*Gokul village (Choice based) .
Would not recommend to go Gokul , as there is only a small temple and Nothing else .
Local Transport :
Bus are also available . But auto will be convinient .
Book a Auto , outside the stsn itself for all this temple .
While fixing a Auto , Bargaining is must .
All depends upon your Bargaining strength .
As per my visit , The auto driver started from 1000 and finally ended up at 500₹ .
One can also go by sharing Auto .
Food :
*Lots of restaurants are available .at Mathura and Vrindavan , as per different budget . .
*To try something different ,Take different variant of food from the Street .
vendors are having small stalls on road.
* Some popular Option can also be Comesum or food plaza at MTJ stsn .
(we Tried at Food plaza , and it was Good) . .
Return :.
Nearly till 5 PM all the Major temple can be covered .
For going NDLS ., we boarded TAJ Exp .(12279)
In Between time .,
At pf#1 , There is Good option for snacks and Thali .
And Did some , Railfaining at Station .
