The Govind Dev Ji Temple is a very famous place that is very important, spiritual and religious destination for Hindus, especially for the devotees of Shree Krishna. The temple is surrounded by many gardens in which there are few beautiful chandeliers (which came from Europe) and many paintings of Indian art.
It was built in 1735 by the king, Sawai Pratap Singh II. The ceiling of the temple is made of gold and looks really beautiful. The temple was positioned and made such that the Maharaja can get a direct view from his palace (Chandra Mahal).
The Satsang Bhawan at the Govind Dev – Ji temple holds a World Record and is mentioned in The Guinness Book. It is a marvel of construction because it has the worlds widest flat roof construction with a single span of 119 feet.
The Govind Dev Ji Mandir is a sacred place that was made for the 8th avatar of Shree Krishna ji maharaj. This beautiful temple is located in the pink city of Jaipur which is a famous tourist destination. Earlier the idol of Govind Ji Maharaj was kept at the Vrindavan temple located in north Indian state of UP (Uttar Pradesh) but later on Raja Sawai Jai Singh ji brought it to Jaipur. The idol is very beautiful and it looks exactly the same like the Shree Krishna himself.
The temple is placed at a very beautiful place in the pink city area and is just between the Badal Mahal and the Chandra Mahal. Every day, exactly seven different and right times Aartis, Prashad and Bhogs are offered and Janmashtami is the most important festival here because on that day the Shree Krishna was born and is very special for me and everyone who is a devote of Govindji Maharaj.
