Thikana Mandir Sri Govinddevji
The Vaishnava temple Govind Dev Ji is situated in Jaipur district in Rajasthan state of India. It is located in the JAI NIWAS BAGH. Murti is easily visible from City Palace. The temple is dedicated to Govind Dev Ji and Radha ji. This temple is among the 7 temples of Thakur of Vrindavan including Sri Radhavallabh ji, Shri Bankey Bihari Ji, Shri Govind Dev Ji and four others. The image of the deity (murti) was brought from Vrindavan hereby Raja Sawai Jai Singh II, the founder of Jaipur Under guidance of Goswami family. According to popular legend, Lord Krishna's image in the temple looks exactly like Krishna's form during his incarnation on Earth. According to the legend, the Image of Lord Govind Devji was also called "Bajrakrit"- indicating thereby that it was created by Bajranabh – The Great Grand Son of Lord Krishna. Some 5,000 years back when Shri Bajranabh was around 13 years old, he asked his Grand Mother (daughter-in-law of Lord Krishna) as to how Lord Shri Krishna looked like; Then He made an image as per the description given by her. She, however, said that not all but the feet of that image looked like those of Lord Shri Krishna. He made another image, yet she said that the Chest looked like that of Lord Shri Krishna. Thereafter, He made the Third Image and looking at the same she veiled her face as a show of modesty and remarked that the face of the deity was exactly like that of Lord Sri Krishna.
