“Divine Darshan of God”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

The place is highly religious importance and gives ooprtunity for divine darshan of Lord Krishna. There are certain timings of the temple and u should make query about the same before going. Further at the teple premises lot of people will say that they will provide u opprotunity of VIP darshan without watse of time and all but please dont trust them. They all r fraud and will not provide u any prefernce. After taking money their tone will change. Please dont trust these peoples, u simple go by the rules and have darshan of Lord Srinathji. You really feel great mental peace and positive energy after having darshan. U should take out time for this visit if u r going to Udaipur.

“Hare Krishna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Shri Nathdwara (a pathway to Lord Shri Krishna) literally means the gateway to the Lord ShriNathji. This great Vaishnavite shrine was built in the 17th century on spot exactly identified by the Lord himself. The legends have it that the idol of the Lord Krishna was being transferred to safer place from Vrindaban to protect it from the destructive wrath of the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. When the idol reached this spot, the wheels of bullock cart it was traveling in, sank axle deep in mud and refused to move further, at all. The accompanying priest realized that this was Lord's chosen spot and the Lord did not want to travel any further. Accordingly a Temple was built here. This is a temple and place of pilgrimage amongst its believers.
Must GO

“A great Hindu Teerth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Nathdwara is a famous Teerth of India & one must go there to seek the blessings of the Lord Krishna.

From Udaipur its a scenic one hour trip & on the way you can visit Eklingji & Nagda Temple. Start early around 9 AM from Udaipur & after these two places reach Nathdwara around 11 AM. The temple opens for 30 minutes only from 11:30 - 12:00 PM & after that opens again at only 4:00 PM.

The temple is 2 km walk from the car park through bazaar. Its as usual with all Krishna Temples in Mathura - Vrindavan too, very chaotic & hugely crowded. One should avoid weekends, public holidays, Ekadasi & Puranmasi at all cost while visiting these temples. We went on a Tuesday morning but still it was much crowded. We hired a guide for Rs 150 from Bazaar itself as it would have been difficult to get darshan otherwise. If you hire a guide then tell him the charges would be fixed for the entire family & also make it very clear that you wont like to donate at several other places in the temple otherwise he will make you pay at at least 10 different places. I told him if he make me pay I wont pay him.

With the help of Guide you can have good darshan & also he can help you buy prasad afterwards. Our guide also shown us several other places like different kind of God's Shringaar & a room with gold & silver chakki too. After Darshan you may have Gujrati thali at Neelam AC Dining Hall for lunch.

Car entry to Nathdwara town is Rs 40 which is a rip off from Govt authority. Parking charges Rs 20 & shoe keeper at temple charges Rs 10 too.

“Jai Srinathji”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

A little crowded, but a priest helped us. Our cab driver called the priest who guided us. The temple was closed at the time- we waited for the initial rush to abate, but then had good darshan of the Lord. We felt truly blessed.

“Nathdwara”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Srinath ji's photo itself is mesmerizing. Its like "Ranchor" temple in Gujarat. It is said that during the regime of Aurangazeb fearing destruction of Hindu temples, idol of Srinath ji was brought from 'Govardhan", near Mathura. Even though the mewar kings were worshipping Shiv ji, they have installed the idol.Dont miss.
