About Govind Dev Temple

Constructed by Raja Man Singh in 1590, this is a slice of Jaipur in Vrindavan. It is said that Akbar, the Mughal King, donated the red sandstone for this temple. It took many labourers and five years to complete it, but almost 80 years later Aurangzeb brought down five storeys, leaving only two, along with several desecrated sculptures. The legend goes that Aurangzeb lost his sight for 40 days during this period until Lord Krishna appeared in his dream and told him that he has no right to force his own faith on anyone. Aurangzeb repented and his sight was returned.
