Kokilavan Dham, Mathura Overview

Kokilavan, situated near Kosi Kalan in Mathura, houses the famous Shani Temple, dedicated to Shani Dev (Saturn) and his guru Barkhandi Baba. Since the site is located amidst the jungle hence, it has also come to be known as Kokilavan Dham. The pilgrims perform a parikrama of the temple and take a dip in the holy kund here.

Saturdays are the busiest days of the week when the temple is visited by local pilgrims and tourists from far and wide. It is believed by the devotees that taking a dip in the Suryakund at Kokilavan leads to their wishes being fulfilled. There is a sacred tree at the temple compound where devotees offer water and write their wishes on a blank wall with their fingers.
