Mathura, the first glimpse

Am back from 10days trip to Golden Triangle, Mathura and Ranthambore. Its been our first long tour after my daughter was born, as we were always worried about her diet during our travel. But this time, she was the one who was very much eager about the trip and been waiting since she finished her academic session for the year. The train journey was what she was more fasinated of, as she hardly remembered her last train journey.
Our trip started with Mathura, which we were supposed to reach by 7:30am. Unfortunately our train had some issue and we where stuck near Bharatpur for more than an hour. And this is what we did, while waiting for our train to start,
And we reach Mathura
