Govind Devji Temple, Jaipur: 2 reviews and 6 photos

 
 

Located just north of the City Palace, this large temple is dedicated to Govind Dev Ji (another name of Lord Krishna). According to a legend, Govind Dev Ji appeared in a dream of Raja Sawai Jai Singh and asked him to bring his idol from Vrindavan to Jaipur. As a consequence, Raja Sawai Jai Singh brought the idol and placed in the City Palace complex of Jaipur. After the sad demise of Jai Singh, many successors acquired the throne, but Raja Man Singh took the initiative to build the temple in 1890.
