Shri Govindjee Temple Travel

The Govindjee temple situated in the vicinity of the Royal palace is an unpretentious hitherto striking edifice. The temple, a Vaishnavite center, has twin domes, a tiled courtyard and a considerable congregation hall. The temple houses various idols of Hindu Gods and Goddesses viz. Krishna, Balaram, Jagannath, Subhadra etc.

Legend has it that Shree Govindjee himself ordered the installation of his idol carved out from a jackfruit tree at Kaina. Shri Jai Singh Maharaja, the saintly King followed the orders and had an idol carved out from the tree trunk for installation at the temple. The atmosphere at the temple is festive and is rare sight in this part of the country to listen to some authentic Hindu mantras and musical offerings.
