Janmashtami Celebration in Jaipur

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 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.

    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!
