Today is Janmashtami – the birthday of Lord Krishna. Krishna is highly revered in Jaipur. As the city is preparing for Janmasthmi celebrations, let me take you around a few heritage temples and show you ongoing preparations for the Janmashtami celebrations in Jaipur.
The banners announcing the celebrations are everywhere in the walled city.

Here’s a picture of Brij Nidhi Temple all decked up for Janmashtami celebrations.
The preparations at Sri Ramchandra Temple in Sirehdyodi Bazaar seem to be on a grand scale! It’s quite understandable. Shri Ramchandra Temple is the grandest heritage temple of Lord Krishna in Jaipur. Its architecture style & marble carvings are astounding. It replicates the grandeur of a palace.
Even though Govind Devji temple is the most popular temple in Jaipur, Sri Ramchandra Ji Temple has its own charm and appeal. The office of Devesthan Vibhag is situated in its premises.
Krishna temples in the city are all decked up & ready for the celebrations. When it comes to Janamasthami celebrations, it looks like the people of Jaipur are ready to celebrate it in a grand way!
