Govindji Temple - Review

Although bearing the scars of Aurangzeb's ruthlessness, the Govinda Dev Ji Temple still stands proudly, showing of the architectural wonder that it is. Built in the 1500s, this temple was desecrated by Aurangzeb, and his troop shelled the top floors of the temple. The idols were already sent to Jaipur for safe-keeping, but the temple was unfit to be worshipped in. Thus, a new temple was built beside the original one. The architecture will keep you completely mesmerised.

Govindji Temple, Vrindavan Reviews

  • This temple is a brilliant exposure of Indian architecture.But I strongly recommend beware of monkeys and local guides.Mobile Sunglasses Purses and any accessories can lead You clash with monkeys.

  • Govind Devji temple at Vrindavan was built by Raja Mansingh I 1590. Temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna. Red sand stones were used to build this temple and is known for finer architectural details. Originally this temple had 7 floors. Later top 4 floors were destroyed by Muslim King Aurangazeb when he came to power. We see now the remaining 3 floors. Fearing Aurangazeb, the main deity was removed and sent to Jaipur. The place is worth visiting.

  • Closed temple. Completely under the command of monkeys. Don't go there if you want your camera, mobile and sunglasses safe....from monkey thieves

  • I visit in October 17.This is very beautiful and amazing architecture splendid.It was constructed in 1590 by king Man Singh of Amer.The architecture of the temple is different from those of conventional temples.Must visit with family and friends.

  • Brilliant piece of indian architecture. It is said to have been built by the king man singh of jaipur. Beware of the monkeys here . Keep your mobile and spectacles inside the bag. If any monkey sees it they will take it from you and in return you have to give banana or frootie to them to get it back. I was in aww by the beautiful architecture of this place. Photography is not allowed inside. BEWARE OF MONKEYS. It is said to be of 7 storyes but it was destroyed by muslim invaders .
