This blog will show images from my summer trip to India. I stayed two months there, first going to shoot images of Widows in Vrindavan .widowsofvrindavan.blogspot.com/.
Then I headed toward Rajasthan, a place I already visited twice before.
Brahmins. Mathura. Uttar Pradesh
Praying inside the temple alongside the sacred Yamuna River in Mathura. Mathura is reputed to be the birthplace of Krishna, Krishnajanmabhoomi. The Keshav Dev temple was built in ancient times on the site of Krishna's supposed birthplace (an underground prison). As per epic Mahabharata, Mathura was the capital of the Surasena Kingdom, ruled by Kansa the maternal uncle of Krishna.
