Govindaji Temple

Govindaji Temple

The original Govindaji Deity was found about 450 years ago by Sri Rupa Goswami. In 1590 A.D., the Govindaji temple was built by Maharaja Man Singh from Jaipur, taking several thousand men five years to build. The Govindaji Deity was removed from this temple when the Muslim emperor Aurangzeb had his army attack Vrindavan, destroying part of the temple.

The original Deity is now residing in Jaipur, in a temple right outside the King of Jaipur’s palace.
