Govindji ka Mandir,Jaipur, Rajasthan

Govindji Ka Mandir  is a beautiful temple nestled in the heart of the city of Jaipur, Rajasthan. Govind means  protector of  cows, another name for  Krishna who is darling God of many all over the world. This temple was  built by Raja Sawai Jai Singh II , He built this temple in such a way so that he can see the Lord from his palace. Sawai Jai Singh  got the image of Govindji from Brindavan.

It is believed that this deity resembles exactly like the Lord Krishna when he was at birth and this image was created by Krishna's great grand son known as Bajranabh. The idol is small and decorated well.
This temple is visited by thousands of pilgrims everyday and worship is offered in the form of Aarti and Bhog 7 times a day.The Bhog  is distributed among the devotees.


 (I am back,was away from  blogging due to personal commitments. Hope and pray I will be active as I was in the past. I missed all my blogger friends, shall be visiting all of you soon).
Wish all dear friends  a Happy and Prosperous New Year!!


Flowers for the Lord

Chitra madam it is very glad to see that you are coming back to blogging again. Madam Happy New Year 2015 in advance. I hope in the new year you are traveling to many pilgrimage places of our country and share your experiences.

Chitra madam recently i am conducted my Third Seminar on Indian Heritage and Culture. In this seminar i am sharing my collections relating to our culture and many children actively participated in my seminar and they cleared their doubts about our heritage through me.

Chitra madam please look into my Third Seminar on Indian Heritage and Culture post and share your valuable and inspirational comment.

Chitra madam in your collection did you have any picture postcards, postcards albums, souvenirs, paintings etc. on temples etc. Madam why i am asking because during your travels i hope you bought some picture postcards and other material at temples. Madam if you have any of these material is in spare collection with you then i request you please send some of them to me for my collection purpose and for sharing them with children in my future seminars.

How did I manage to miss this? Wondering where you had got to given your absence both here and on FB, may I now wish you and yours a belated happy new year.
