In close proximity to the southeastern region of Mathura, about 18 kilometres from the city is one of the most revered temples of the country, the Dauji Mandir. The temple has stood for over 5000 years since 1535 AD and is one of the oldest temples in the city. The presiding deity of the temple is Lord Balarama, who was the elder sibling of Lord Krishna. Devotees and pilgrims from all over the country gather at the temple to offer prayers in the holy abode of Baladev manifestation of the Lord Vishnu. The temple is a must-visit for all those who are fascinated by mythology, culture, history and spirituality.
The idol of Lord Baladev is considered as the hugest of Braja Mandal, black in colour and having two hands. The deity is about 7 feet tall. While the left-hand holds a royal cup with Varuni (the holy drink) in it, the right hand is elevated and can be discovered by the devotees when they offer prayers. Equipped with exquisite dress and embellishments, the idol radiates magnificence. Apart from the chief deity that is Lord Balaram, there is also a statue of his wife, Revati, dressed exquisitely. One of the significant factors about this temple is the presence of Kshir Sagar, which has added a lot in making Dauji Mandir one of the most intriguing pilgrimage destinations in the country.
