Jaipur Mandir

The huge altar inside the main hall is divided into three chambers that are dedicated to the worship of Shri Radha-Madhava, Ananda-bihari and Hansa-Gopala. The deities were installed in the temple sometime during the year 1886.

Jaipur Mandir, the sprawling temple that stands out for its grand design and craftsmanship, is situated on Swami Vivekanand Marg in Raman Reti, Vrindavan.

The impressive red sandstone structure was built by Maharaj Sawai Madho Singh II of Jaipur in the year 1881 on the inspiration of Shri Giridharisharan ji. It took nearly 35-40 years for the temple’s construction. 1917 is by when most accounts agree the final structure was complete. A railway connection, also funded by the Maharaja, was set up between Mathura and Vrindavan for transportation of large sandstones.

Built in Rajasthani style, the temple is etched with fine, intricate carvings on the exterior and interior. The huge altar inside the main hall is divided into three chambers that are dedicated to the worship of Shri Radha-Madhava, Ananda-bihari and Hansa-Gopala. The deities were installed in the temple sometime during the year 1886.

On the inspiration of Pujya Baba Shripad Maharaj many projects were undertaken by the management, notable among which are the ‘Shripad Baba Goshala’ and the ‘Braj Akademi’ – an effort towards the preservation and promotion of Braj culture and literature.  Both operate from within the premises.
