Govind Devji Temple (Jaipur)

Govind Devji Temple (Jaipur)

This royal temple, dedicated to Lord Krishna and Goddess Radha, is located in the City Palace complex. It was Raja Sawai Jai Singh who is believed to have brought the image of Govind Devji (Lord Krishna) to Jaipur from Vrindavan. It is a delight to visit the temple on the festival of Janmashthami when the deities are dressed up in all the fineries, accompanied by the enchanting aarti (prayer in singing form) and bhog. The connection one feels with the divine here is the true calling for visitors.
