About Govindji Temple, Vrindavan
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
Majestic and beautiful temple in Vrandavan.Built by Raja mansingh in 16th century in red stone.
One of oldest temlpe in Sree Vrindavan . Once upon a day when Mughal King Ourangajeb saw a very light from Agra then he ask his person what is this? The man said a Hindu temlpe situated in Vrindavan glow this light with 1600kg ghee daily.Hearing this he became angry and told minister destroy the light and the temlpe by tomorrow.I don't want to see a hindu temple to light up. Next day his soldiers came and destroy temples 4 floor ( actualy it was seven floor) of the structure.The Intrest was moved from here to Joypur Rajbari in very previous day hearing possible attack by Ourangajeb.
Jai shree krishna.. Nice temple but be careful from monkeys
Architecturally this temple is one of the finest in North India Originally temple had seven-story structure,but during Aurangzeb's Ara it was plundered and destroyed leaving only three stories. Now there is a new Govindaji Mandir, replica of Govindaji is worshiped here and the original Govindji is worshiped in Jaipur.
Temple of archaeological importance. Originally seven storey, and four storey destroyed by mughal emperor Aurangjeb. The deity was moved to another place and a new temple was built nearby called new Govind Dev Temple.
