“Sri Vrndavana is more purifying than all transcendental knowledge. Sri Vrndavana is the most efficient means to attain all that is valuable. Sri Vrndavana is the supreme abode of transcendental pastimes. Who will not serve Sri Vrndavana, considering it millions of times more dear than his own life?”

- Sri Vrndavana Mahimamrta 5.85

Mathura City is the transcendental abode of Lord Krishna and not an ordinary material city. It is eternally connected with the Supreme Personality of Godhead. As Mathura and Vrindavan are intimately connected with Krishna eternally, it is said that Lord Krishna never leaves Vrindavan. At present the place known as Vrindavan in the district of Mathura, continues its position as a transcendental place and certainly anyone who goes there becomes transcendentally purified.

“We must understand the transcendental importance of Mathura-Vrndavana and Navadvipa-dhama. Anyone who executes devotional service in these places certainly goes back home, back to Godhead, after giving up his body.” - Srimad Bhagavatam 10.1.28
