After a wonderful visit from Pinjore Garden (Yadavindra Gardens) – a Marvelous Mughal Garden near Chandigarh let’s go to Nathdwara (Shrinathji)
I went there when I was 11 Years old. It was our first family trip. It’s one of the memorable trip of my life. Wanna know why? Imagine when monkey snatches Mango and push you back? When you broke your specs because of monkeys or when you try weird food or when your driver doesn’t even know about the place nor language? Or when monkeys are scared of the driver?. Well, you can now imagine the situations.
There are so many beliefs about the temple. Some say Lord manifest as a seven-year-old child, while the Srinathji deity self-manifested from stone and emerged from the Govardhan Hills and then shifted to Nathdwara.
It’s an important place for Vaishnav’s and Pustimargi. Shrinathji Temple is also known as ‘Haveli of Shrinathji.
