Probably one of the most significant temples for Krishna followers after Vrindavan, Govind Dev Temple is located within the City Palace of Jaipur. Locals believe that the statue of the deity here looks exactly like Krishna's form during his incarnation of Earth. From early in the morning to the late night, the air is thick with the sounds of Mangala Aarati at dawn and Shayana Aarati at night. Built during the reign of Emperor Akbar by Sawai Man Singh in 1590 and was regarded as being one of the largest temples of the world during its time.
Being dedicated to Lord Krishna, the temple sees an upbeat and exciting celebration during the Janmashtami time in August. As the Temple is the part of the City Palace, which was the seat of the Maharaja of Jaipur, it has a beautiful coexistence of Hindu, Muslim and Western architectural traits. The temple is surrounded by beautiful gardens. Inside it, one can see some beautiful European chandeliers and paintings of Indian art.
