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 quite identical. Not much is known about its history. All I could find was that the temple dates to 18th century. Going by its placement at a very important square, it must have been commissioned by the erst while royalty or some influential person. This temple too is currently managed by Galta Peeth located in Galta, Jaipur.

If you are visiting this area, do visit both the temples, they are located right next to each other.
