KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN RAJASTHAN

Udaipur - Jagadish Mandir

It is Maharana Jagatsingh's priceless gift to the theist world. This elegantly built and tastfully adorned mandir is the important land mark and seen for miles afar. Its high eminence with tall steeples, bearing the ever fluttering saffron flags and steep stair-cases with life-size elephants at the Mahadwara hold out an irresistible fascination even for the fun-loving tourists, whose cameras click more than the flickering of their eyes at the apurupasobha of the adorable lord Mahavishnu. The temple is richly decorated with bas relief's from base to lintels. The craftsmanship of the sculptors in chiselling several tiers with friezes of various kinds of animals, like crocodiles, elephants, horse-men leading celestial musicians in procession serve a royal banquet to the eyes. The patrons refined taste and supreme devotion seem exuding from top to bottom. And it is a standing specimen of Indo-Aryan style. Being the most venerated and frequently visited shrine, it throbs with devotional activities manifested in singing of songs, ringing of bells, clanging of cymbals etc. from early morn till late night. It is a miss-not shrine of infinite religious significance.

It lies in Udaipur city itself of Rajasthan, accessible by all types of transport.

Udaipur - Lakshmi Narayan Mandir

The erst-while princely state of Bikaner with Udaipur as capital boasts of many sacred shrines of unprecedented spiritual eminence. Built by devout Rajaput kings who emptied their treasures for external dazzle and internal sublimity, they have carved out an indelible name in the temple history of India. Each is a specimen of superb craftsmanship, dedicated either to Sakteya divinity or Vaishnavate god. Karni Devi temple, enshrining the tutelary deity of the Rathore Princes stands peerless and is visited by large streams of devotees. The Lakshmi Narayan temple built near the old fort is another example of their lavish patronage and fabulous endowments. It is an important centre of pilgrimage drawing a steady influx of devotees throughout the year. The abundant use of marble and excellent artistry of the sculptors detain the visitors long and elevates their souls immensely. Routine worship is offered to the deities with due religious fervour. Important annual festivals dear to the Lord are celebrated with great pomp and splendour, matching the status of the princes and the glorious position of the deities.

It lies in Udaipur, the capital of Bikaner, commanding all transport facilities.
