View of the Kanak Vrindavan Garden & Mansagar Lake

I had earlier written about two Kanak Vrindavan temple in Kanak Ghati, JaipurNatwar ji temple and Radha Madhav Temple. I’m sure most of you must have read both these posts.

There is yet another element in the Kanak Ghati apart from these two temples, the Kanak Vrindavan Garden patterned on the famous Mughal style gardens like the Nishat & Shalimar gardens in Srinagar and the one at  Taj Mahal, Agra. However, the Kanak Vrindavan Garden is quite small in comparison. I’ll reserve a full post for some other day.

I’m posting here, a picture of the Kanak Vrindavan Garden in the foreground and the Mansagar Lake in the background, captured earlier this month when I visited the Natwarji Temple out of a chance event.

This picture evokes a feeling ofGraceful” target=”_blank”> Grace and serenity. It’s quite like a picture postcard. With this kind of stunning views, it’s not hard to understand why Maharajah Sawai Jai Singh II chose this site for building a temple for Lord Govind Dev ji.

  1. Arv, you are so right, this picture looks like a postcard!!! It’s so beautiful, I love the scalloped arch at the top of the photo and all the relaxing colors in it. I also love how the landscaping has been made, how the trees and bushes are cut and sculpted, it almost looks like a garden in Paris! 🙂 Very lovely photo and nice new dp too Arv! 🙂

    1. Thanks Jennifer! If you haven’t heard about Mughal gadens, then you must explore more about it. It’s a divided into four symmetric section with pathways intersecting in between. It is in a way inspired from the old texts which explains how heaven looks like. In India, the finest examples of Mughal gardens are in Srinagar, Kashmir. Thanks for the lovely comments, jennifer! 🙂
