It is believed that the place where the temple stands
today was once the residence of the founder and ruler
of the Jaipur city, Sawai Raja Jai Singh II. One day,
Lord Krishna appeared in his dreams and asked him to
vacate this place as it belonged to him. The very next
day, Jai Singh shifted to City Palace and started with
the construction work of the temple. He brought the
idols of Govind Dev Ji and Radha Ji from Vrindavan and
placed them here. Since then this temple was a place
of worship for the members of the royal family of Jaipur.
The idols of the Govind Dev Ji and Radha Ji at Govind
Dev Ji Temple in Jaipur are dressed seven times a day
and every time they are dressed up in a different way.
After the unveiling of the idols after getting dressed
up, the process of aarti and bhog take place. Janmashtami,
the day celebrated as the day when Lord Krishna was
born sees a large number of devotees coming to the temple.
