Kusum Sarovar at early morning
Kusum Sarovar is the must visit site in Mathura. Kusum Sarovar is actually a 450 feet long tank that belongs to the era of Lord Krishna. Kusum Sarovar is 60 feet deep and has numerous flights of stairs from all sides. Kusum Sarovar is just half an hour walk from another famous tank named Radha Kund.
The thing that makes Kusum Sarovar a place worth visit is the peace and serenity that it offers. The place is marked by groves of tress, mostly Kadamb. Interestingly, Kadamb was the favorite tree of Lord Krishna. It is said that Kusum Sarovar is the place where Gopis or milkmaids used to pick flowers for lord Krishna. The place remains the best swimming spot in the Braj region till date.
The tank is suitable for bathing so do keep aside some time for it. The place is good to spend a quality evening when you can loiter around the serene grooves. There are numerous small Ashrams and Temples nearby. Stop for the evening Aarti.
