Galtaji in Jaipur

Among the temples in the city of Jaipur, Galtaji holds a prominent place. Known for its beautiful surroundings and the amazing landscapes that make for the road leading to the temple, Galtaji in Jaipur is a treat for the tourists.

According to the legend behind the establishment of the temple, this place suffered from scarcity of water. Therefore a sage called Galva prayed here for hundreds of years. As a result of the prayers, the Lord was pleased and the area was blessed with a stream of water. Later, the people in this area constructed the temple of Galtaji to pay reverence to the sage.

The entire compound of Galtaji in Jaipur that is cosseted by hills of Aravali ranges in the outskirts of the city of Jaipur has a number of temples for the followers to visit. As you enter the premises of the temple, priestly chants enter your ears even from a distance. Other temples located in the temple complex include Sita Ram temple, Krishna temple, Balaji temple and a hanuman temple. The complex also has an artificial lake called kund. The source of water for this lake has been carved in the shape of a cow's mouth similar to that of the starting point of river Ganges. It is considered sacred to bathe in the lake before entering the main temple of the sage Galva.

Apart from being a popular place among the religious tourists arriving in the city, Galtaji in Jaipur is also acclaimed for its picturesque beauty. The hillocks surrounding the temple complex offer a panoramic view to the spectators. Even the road connecting the temple to the main city of Jaipur is full of scenic beauty.
