Mathura and Vrindavan are important pilgrimages for the Hindus. Both these destinations are related to the Hindu God Lord Krishna. While Mathura is known to be the birthplace of Krishna, Vrindavan is where he spent his childhood. Mathura and Vrindavan are dotted with beautiful temples which have gained popularity from all over the world, and devotees pay a visit at least once a year to these two cities. Nidhivan Sarovar Portico offers excellent venues for weddings in Vrindavan. The hotel’s basement and the ground floor have been specially designed to make them suitable for hosting large-scale wedding ceremonies.
