Vibrant Rajasthan - Tour to the Land of History, Legends, Hotels....
Kanak Vrindavan is a valley situated below the Nahargarh hills adjoining the Amber Fort, on Jaipur-Amber highway.
Nearly 280 years back, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh, liked the place as it reminded him of the mythological Vrindavan (Land of Lord Krishna). He installed an idol of Shri Govind Deoji here and a temple was built at the location.
This is a very pretty destination, with people coming here often for picnics. It is favoured by film crews as well who come here often to shoot scenes of their films. Kanak Vrindavan is said to be blessed with holy water from several rivers that was gathered to carry out an Ashwamedh Yajna. The Govind Deoji Temple, has beautiful carvings, chhatris, lattice and mirror work. The sanctum sanctorum is engraved with exotic 'panni' work. The valley is very scenic, surrounded as it is by Aravali hills. Dharbawati River also flows by, making the environs quite cool. All three forts of Jaipur look out into this valley over a distance.
The complex has a series of fountains, with on fountain called Parikrama having been made out of one piece of marble. The complex is a beautiful vision at nights, bathed in colourful lights and Jal Mahal in the background. Chants and hymns add to the serenity of this place. Kanak Vrindavan is easily accessible from Nahargarh, Jaigarh and Amber, the three forts of Jaipur and must be visited.
