Janmashtami Celebration in Jaipur / WPC- Connected

Today is janmashtami – birthday of Lord Krishna.

There are no second thoughts about the fact that he has a large following in Jaipur.

As the city is preparing for the celebrations, let me take you around few heritage temples and  show you the preparations for the Janmashtmi celebrations!

The preparations at Sri Ramchandra Temple seem to be on a grand scale! And it’s quite understandable.This is the most beautiful Krishna temple in the city. Its architecture style & marble carvings are outstanding. It can rival any palace! it’s quite grand!

Although Govind Devji temple is the most popular temple in Jaipur, going by the popular choice, even then,Sri Ramchandra Temple is in a different league!

The office of Devesthan Vibhag/department  is also based in its premises.

    1. Thanks for checking it out! Despite the fact that lately Hindu religion has come under reevaluation from modern perspective and some mal practices it embodies, there are wonderful aspects that are yet to be understood. I’m sure there are many things that are yet to be fully understood by modern science -faith and religion! How it was central to human life and society in those times? I’m simply amazed by the workmanship and sheer number of Lord Krishna temples built by rulers over period of years!
