KALKAVATAR KSHETRAS IN MANIPUR

Kaina - Sri Govindaji Mandir

This charming vaishnavate temple visited during all seasons by a steady stream of devotees lies atop a hill, about 921 metres above sea level. Its legend and the origin of construction are quite awesome and fascinating too. According to sthalapurana, Bhagya chandra, Maharaja of Manipur had a vision of Govindaji in his dream and was commanded to build a beautiful temple for Him and install His image made of Jack fruit tree. Deeming it good fortune, he commenced construction and employed famous architects and sculptors to make it a jewel among the shrines of his kingdom. When highest power embarks upon a project divine, would there be place for mediocrity or faceless slowness? The temple with imposing dimension adorned with breath-taking sculpture soon emerged and elevated the souls of both builder and his subjects. As directed, the image was carved out of a Jack fruit wood, available in plenty in that region. The temple conducts several cultural programmes, depicting mainly the divine dream and king's glory, at the temples Rasamandap and it is the star-attraction luring huge crowds. Regular puja is offered with great devotional fervor.

It lies 29 km off Imphal, accessible by bus from Imphal via Thoubal.
