    Mathura Favorites

    (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.

  • Ubiquitous little things - Mathura Peda

    Mathura Shopping

    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.
