Shrinathji Temple

Shrinathji Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Shrinathji in Nathdwara. It is considered an important pilgrimage centre by Vaishnavas.

Nathdwara is famous for its 17th century temple that is dedicated to Lord Shrinathji (Lord Krishna). The term ‘Nathdwara’ suggests the ‘gate of the lord’. Shrinathji Temple is also known as ‘Haveli of Shrinathji’ and makes a prominent pilgrimage of the Hindus / Vaishnavas.
The temple has a story behind its establishment. According to the legend, the image of Lord Shrinath ji was enshrined in Vrindavan (land of Lord Krishna), but to protect the idol from the destructive rage of Aurangzeb.

In 1672, Rana Raj Singh was the only gallant, who made an effort to rescue the idol from the domain of Aurangzeb. It is said that when the image was being shifted to an impervious place then at a particular place, the wheel of vehicle sank deep down in mud.

The image refused to move further, so the escorting priest apprehended that this was Lord’s chosen spot. Thus, a temple was built on the same spot.
