Mathura, November 23, 2023.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday paid obeisance at Sri Krishna Janmbhoomi temple in Mathura. He is in the city to attend the ‘Mirabai Janmotsav’, being organised to celebrate the 525th birth anniversary of the poet and Lord Krishna devotee.

Modi will release a commemorative stamp and coin in the honour of Mirabai and attend a cultural programme, in which actor-turned-politician Hema Malini, a BJP MP, will be performing.

“The life of Saint Mirabai is a unique example of pure devotion and faith. Her hymns and couplets dedicated to Lord Shri Krishna even today fill the hearts of all of us with reverence,”
