In Jaipur, the Pink City, many temples are well known for their artistic beauty but the Govind Devji temple is special.It enshrines an idol which has been worshiped by the royal family of Jaipur ever since it was brought from Vinadavan to Jaipur in the 18th century.

This temple dedicated to Lord Krishna has simple architecture with an open columned pavilion and a sightly sunken courtyard surrounded by a low balustrade. The image of Lord Krishna is believed to have been sculpted by Vijranath, the greatest sculptor of his age and the grandson of Lord Krishna.

Various religious programmes are held here on the occasion of 'Krishna Janmashtmi' (birth of Lord Krishna). The temple can be entered by the Sireh Dheodi entrance or from the route of Chaugan Stadium and Janta Bazar. The statues of Govind Devji and Radhikaji are black and clad in gold ornaments.

It happened in the latter part of Emperor Aurangzeb's rule when, with the impelling grave condition of the Empire, regional Hindu Kingdoms became increasingly self assertive. Thus, that move from Vrindaban to Amber, the patrimonial land of the Kachawahas, also marked the Kachawaha rulers' assertion of regional power and identity.

This is the most important and popular temple, which is visited in thousands by the devotees through out the year.
