The temple rests under the society of Aadi Gaur Brahmin Moortikar kalakaar sanstha (stone sculptor society located in Khazane walo ka rasta, chandpole bazar, Jaipur). Although not much information is available, but it is being claimed that the original version of this temple dates back to 10-11th  century. amber temple

The main shrine is quite small, however the temple complex is quite big.

Although the overall upkeep of temple and its premises is very good, but the condition of the paintings is self explanatory in these pictures.

Since this temple managed by the society of moortikar brahmin samaj, it is not frequented by locals. It’s popular among the followers of this Brahmin community only.

Don’t expect much though else you’ll be disappointed! Badrinath temple is an offbeat attraction in Amer.

    1. Thanks Rajesh! Amer town is full of old temples; many of them date back to 10-11th century. Unfortunately, most of temples have been sidelined and are yet to be “re-discovered” ! thanks for checking out the post!

    1. yeah! the surface on which these have been painted is also ancient technique. its not a paint! the other aspect of restoration is that today we don’t have skilled people who understand these techniques !!

      1. Looking at sheer no of heritage sites we have in the city (and elsewhere in Rajasthan).. it really needs lot of funds and organized efforts by the agencies to restore them. The Amer town near Jaipur city, which dates back to 9-10th century has many buildings already in dilapidated conditions….more on that soon!
