  • Legend:

Lord Krishna’s image in the temple is also called Bajrakrit as it is believed that the idol was created by the great grandson of Lord Krishna- Bajranabh.

It is believed that in 1735 AD this idol of Lord Krishna was transferred from Vrindavan Dhaam to pink city Jaipur and  was sanctified at the present place of temple i.e. Suraj Mahal of City Palace.
