Sitting on the laps of the very town where the Hindu God, Lord Krishna is believed to have spent his childhood, the Govind Devji Temple stands as an architectural marvel since the past five centuries. The temple, built of red sandstone, is dedicated to Lord Krishna in his childhood home. Vrindavan is a twin town to Mathura, where Sri Krishna was born and adjacent to Gokul, where he is believed to have spent the initial years of his childhood.
The Govind Devji Temple is a shrine revered as one of the holiest in the said place, set amongst the many other sanctums dedicated to the Lord. Although the original idol no longer exists in the temple, it is said that the idol of Lord Krishna in Govind Devji Temple resembled the face of the lord when he was born.
The magnificent temple is a wonder for the Hindu pilgrims as one can witness the purity of the place where the Lord was once believed to have been resided and performed all his miracles. James Hastings points out in Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics; the Govind Devji Temple is one of the four temples of particular interest among the thousand within the periphery of Vrindavan town.
