Getting to Vrindavan

Transport Options from the Delhi Airport and Other Nearby Cities


The closest airport is New Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL). From there, it is a 3 1/2 hour taxi ride to Vrindavan. Taxi pick-ups can be arranged for you if needed using the booking form below.


Buses to Vrindavana or Mathura from Delhi depart from either the Interstate Bus Terminal near Kashmiri Gate in Old Delhi, or from the Ashram bus stop in the southeast part of Delhi. There are few direct buses from Delhi to Vrindavana. Most go to Mathura. If you take the Mathura bus, you get off at Chatikara Road and get a motor rickshaw to Vrindavana.


There is no long-distance train station in Vrindavana. The closest major station is in Mathura, about 14 km away or a half-hour taxi ride. There is also a passenger train between Mathura and Vrindavana, however this is not recommended unless you are familiar with the area.


Taking a taxi is the recommended way to reach Vrindavana from Delhi if you have a few people in your group or if you just want to be comfortable. This is the fastest way (about 3½ hours). At the airport you can go to the “Paid Taxi Stands” or you can contact the MVT and they will help you reserve your taxi from Vrindavan.
