Vishram Ghat Mathura is a serene place on the bank of the river Yamuna surrounded by plants, creepers and flowers. Here Sri Krishna used to take rest with his friends while grazing the cows in the field. The place is spiritually significant where Sri Krishna used to play the flute sitting on the brunch of a Kadamba tree. This sacred Ghat is popular among the devotees as Sri Radha used to come here to collect water from the river Yamuna and also spend a delightful time with Sri Krishna.
Vishram Ghat is located at adistance of 4.5 KM from the Mathura Railway station. This is a bathing Ghat where the devotees of Sri Krishna come to take a holy dip in the river Yamuna. There are a total of 25 Ghats in Mathura and the Vishram Ghat is the biggest and the most famous among them.
Mathura Vishram Ghat is made up of marble stone and there is a large arch at the entrance. There are a number of beautiful temples that surround the Ghat. Some of the major temples are Yamuna-Krishna, Radha-Damodar, Mukut Temple, Neelkantheshwar, Langali Hanuman, Murali Manohar, and Narasimha temples. Usually, the devotees after a holy dip in the water start a Parikrama (circumambulation) of the temples and returned to the same place.
In the evening, Aarti is offered by floating small oil lamps on the water that create a divine beauty filling your mind and body with the serenity and purity. You can also take a boat ride to enjoy the scenic views of the river and temples in the Vishram Ghat.
