Yamuna river is one of the most sacred rivers in India. It starts from Yamunotri and flows from from the city of Vrindavan and Mathura. The Yamuna river is regarded as pure. Hundreds of devotees take a dip in the holy water of Yamuna river to wash off their sins and purify their soul.
Yamuna, also known as Jamuna is the largest tributary of the Ganges in north India. The reason why the water of Yamuna is considered sacred is because Vrindavan and Mathura are synonymous to the life of Lord Krishna and Yamuna flows through Vrindavan and Mathura. It was in the Yamuna river where Lord Krishna played and swam with his cow herding friends and played around with the beautiful gopis.
Yamuna river is said to be sanctified by Lord Krishna, which makes it among the topmost places to visit when in Vrindavan. A purifying bath in the Yamuna river, walking around the nearby village, going for a boat ride, watching the sunset and the evening scenes are all worth experiencing once in a lifetime.
