- Srinathji Mandir
ancient kshetra considered as one of the wealthiest of Indian temples in the
past; played a dominant role as a reputed seat of Vallabha Sampradaya that
propagated Vaishnavism in a spectacular way in the North. Its location is its
major plus point. Bordered by a cluster of blue hills, draped in sumptuous
verdure with the famous river flowing among them, it heightens the joy of
pilgrimage, and hence luring a regular stream of tourists and theists throughout
the year. The Rajasthani style of construction using marble in abundance forb
every flame, either interior or exterior lends unusual charm to the temple and
detains the visitors for long. Despite simple and unostentatious so far the
architectural pattern is concerned, the glory of the archamurti-Lord Krishna
sculptured out of single piece of black marble popularly known as Srinathji is
infinitely high. Extolling its eminence, the locals push back its antiquity to
twelfth century and narrate several sports of the Lord that lifted the adorers.
Regular ritualistic worship is offered and festivals dear to the Lord like
Janmashtami are celebrated with great eclat, when huge crowds congregate to
worship with devotional fervour.
