  • Taj Mahal Look alike mosque

    New Maharaja Motel/restaurant: New Maharaja Motel/restaurant

    by georeiser Written May 18, 2010

    New Maharaja Motel is a roadside motel/restaurant on the way from Dehli to Agra. Many tourist stops here to eat and go to the toilet on their way to Taj Mahal. The building has large brick stones to make it look like a castle. It looks nice on the outside. But let me lower your expectation. It's not nice on the inside. And it's an expensive place. When you walk inside you step into a basar with some shops. They sell mostly crafts to a high price. The restaurant inside the place is also more expensive than usual. This place is just too expensive and they take advantage of all the tourist who stops here. Kindly ask your driver to go to another place on your way to Taj Mahal.

    Brijvyasi (opposite Janmsthan): Ubiquitous little things - Mathura Peda

    by toonhut Written Feb 11, 2011

    What to buy: Everyone sells these brown little dessert things here but the best store to get yours, after trying from a few places, would be Brijvyasi. There are a lot of Brijvyasi's too, so go to the original and most popular one, the big signed store opposite International Guest House/Janmsthan. They do add a plenty of cardamom though.

Mathura Favorites

  • Patience

    (Not my favorite thing but) there seems to be an unusually high amount of security checks everywhere in the city, like manually your bags when you check in to a hotel! Try to be calm about it and let it go.

  • Welcome to Uttar Pradesh

    You drive into the province of Uttar Pradesh on the road from Delhi to Agra. And below the "Welcome to Uttar Pradesh" signpost. All cars must stop here and declare a kind of toll fee before they can drive off again. This place has different shopping stalls beside the road, and you can buy softdrinks, etc.
