Mathura, 2014.10.15 (IANS): Commuters had a harrowing time on the Delhi-Mathura national highway Thursday due to blocked traffic as people headed for Radha Kund to take a dip in holy lake, police said.

Thousands of people came to Mathura Wednesday from nearby places to take a holy dip in Radha Kund and the Yamuna on Athoi Ashtami and this led to the traffic jam, which was cleared after five to six hours, police said.

Many couples who wish to have a child took bathe in the river Wednesday evening and more are expected Thursday, a priest said.

“People came from across the country to take a dip into the river. This is an auspicious month of Kartik when devotees take a holy dip every morning in the Yamuna,” said priest Madhukar Chaubey.
