Built by Raja Man Singh of Jaipur in 1590 AD, Gobinddeo temple is a fine example of medieval India’s architectural grandeur. The temple is erected in the form of a Greek cross. History says that it took five long years for its completion. It is believed that the temple stands at the heavenly meeting site of Radha and Krishna.

This temple was of seven stories high, out of which Auranghaseeb demolished four. The altar is made up of marble, gold and silver. The altar contains the idols of Govindaji Lord Caitanya, and Nityananda. Idols of Radha, Krishna, Lord Jagannath adorns the lower layer of the altar. It also holds a Govardhana-shila. The sculptured lotus flower in the main hall and the large ghee lamps on the top are historical landmarks of the temple. The temple holds a replica of the original deity of Govindaji since at the time of Muslim invasion the original one was removed to Jaipur Palace

The main audience hall of the temple is called the Jagmohans on whose both sides there are two small shrines. Rupa Goswami took the Govindji idol from the cave in the southern side temple. The deity of eight-armed Yoga Maya and a stone slab with the footprint of Krishna ornaments this place. Northern temple holds the idol of Vrinda Devi, who is known as Kamyavana. One can have the holy darshan from 8 am to 12.30 pm and 4 to 9 pm.
