The temples of Jaipur bear a rich cultural and religious history which marks the predominance of the Hindu rulers of that period.
The “Govind Devji Temple” is situated amidst the beautiful lawns of Jai Niwas Garden. This Temple is dedicated to Lord Govindji, the reincarnation of Lord Krishna.
The “Jagat Shiromani Temple” houses a shrine of Lord Krishna and reminds one of the divine love of “Mira Bai” for the Lord. The walls of the temple are engraved with beautiful pictures that reflects the art and architecture of the period.
