Roop Chaturbhuj Temple, Jaipur!….Beautiful Frescos!

Roop chaturbhuj Temple is one of the least known heritage temples in Jaipur. Despite being located at a prominent spot in the walled city, it fails to attract many devotees and followers. It is located right next to Chaturbhuj Temple in Jaipur.

In case, you haven’t read post on Chaturbhuj Temple, Jaipur don’t miss this beautiful temple. Read it here: Chatrurbhuj Temple, Jaipur – Astoundingly Beautiful!

Both temples share many common features – location, layout & frescoes.

I loved the floor pattern at Chaturbhuj temple, with checkered chessboard design in white and black marble. The one at Roop Chaturbhuj Temple on the other hand was uninspiring. The current marble flooring seems to be a product of recent renovation even though everything else looks like original.

Roop Chaturbhuj Temple and Chaturbhuj Temples are identical in many ways. Not much is known about the history of this temple. All I could find was that  temple dates to 18th century. Popular legend says that both these temples were built by two brothers. Going by the placement of both these temples at a prominent place, I assume these were commissioned by the royalty or an influential person. Roop Chaturbhuj Temple is managed by Galta Peeth located at Galta temple, Jaipur also popular as Monkey Temple among foreign tourists.

It is actually strange that beautiful temples like Roop Chaturbhuj or Chaturbhuj Temple attract very few locals. The awareness about these temples is very low. Both Roop Chaturbhuj and Chaturbhuj temple are incredibly beautiful and it is worth visiting for heritage and art lovers.

  1. I have visited Jaipur-such a pretty place; but this beautiful Roll Chaturbhuj temple was somehow unknown to me. This place seems to hold a lot of historical information and I’d love
    to knowing more! Also, I think there is some story behind it’s name, isn’t there?

    1. This temple is not popular even among locals. Unfortunately, very little information is available today. Of course there has to be some story behind this temple.
