    Temple in Mathura.

    "There is a temple of lord Krishna in Mathura it has many trees in it. People say that it has same number of trees the number of wives Krishna had."

    "This temple has as many number of trees as there were wives of Krishna."

    Please check.

    "This temple has as many number of trees as there were wives of Krishna." See below.

    Please check.
    Don't use "as many number". You can say "as many trees as" or "the same number of trees as".

    Here's what I would say:

    The temple of Krishna in Mathura has as many trees as Krishna had wives.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Temple in Mathura.

    If this isn't a coincidence, then you could highlight this by saying something like they planted a tree for each of Krishna's wives.

    Okay, but people say those trees are not planted by them.
