Govind Dev Ji Temple, Jaipur

A vital part of the City Palace complex, this Krishna temple has been highly revered by the royal family. Sawai Jai Singh installed the image of Govind Dev ji (an incarnation of Lord Krishna) after it was brought from Vrindavan. Housed within the sanctum of this spireless temple, the patron deity of the royal family is worshipped by most of the Hindus in the city and nearby areas. The image is unveiled seven times daily for prayers and offerings. The idols of Radha-and Krishna are dressed in different styles each time for the procession where thousands of devotees gather around the courtyard.
