The Meera Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Krishna and associated with the Hindu saint and poet Mirabai. It’s said that she survived a poisoning attempt because she was blessed by Krishan for her devotion. The temple is said to be the one where Meera worshipped and compose poetry to Krishna. The temple is largely built in an early North Indian style, but also seems to have Indo-Islamic domes over the portico. There’s two idols inside the sanctum which I represent Krishna blessing Meera.

The temple will no doubt be of interest to devotees, but purely from an aesthetic point of view, it’s only okay.

The splendid work of art on the temple attracts a large number of tourists. The temple reflects the Indo-Aryan style of architecture which was very famous in those times and is still a part of our cultural heritage.

I visited Meera Bai Temple in the Fort Chittaurgarh in the mid of April 2016 with a business colleague on our way to Udaipur from a colleague's wedding in Asind.

The temple is located next to the Vishnu temple in the Fort Chittaurgarh premises. This attraction was first in our list of attractions covered under the guided tour at Fort Chittaurgarh.

This is an ancient temple made of rock which is dedicated to the Widow queen of the King of Chittaurgarh named Meera Bai. She was a dedicated devotee of Lord Krishna. After the kings death, instead of sacrificing herself to fire along with king, she chose to dedicate the rest of her life as a devotee of Lord Krishna.

The temple was her place for conducting all her dances and praises for Krishna.

Chittorgarh’s association with Meera Bai, who was the most famous female Hindu spiritual poetess and whose compositions are still popular, cannot be forgotten…Her poems follow the Bhakti tradition and she is considered to be the most passionate worshipper of Lord Sri Krishna. Meera was born in 1498 AD in a village called Medata in Pushkar and was given in marriage to Prince Kunwar Bhoj, son of the Mewar King Rana Sanga. The wedding paalki (palanquin) procession took seven days to travel all the way from Pushkar to Chittorgarh. After eight days into wedding, Meera, being a staunch devotee of Lord Sri Krishna, performed puja to the Lord in her private palace. Legend has it that the Lord appeared to her in person and engaged Himself in conversation with her, overhearing of which, one of her servants complained to her master, who had the door to her palace broken open and her husband saw her prostrating before the Lord! From then on, her wedded husband took her to be a Devata (a divine being) and not an ordinary person he got married to! The King thereupon gave permission for a special temple to be built in Chittorgarh - and that remains till date as “Meera Mandir”!
It was an interesting story how Meera got associated with Lord Sri Krishna: When she was a three year old child, once she accompanied her mother to a wedding being celebrated in her village. When she saw the bridegroom, she asked her mother who he was, and the mother replied he was the Dulha (the bridegroom). Not satisfied, she went on pestering her mother to explain to her what was meant by “Dulha”…The mother, getting considerably disturbed, retorted that one day when she grew up she would also get a Dulha… With Meera’s continued pestering her mother got terribly irritated and dumped a little doll of Sri Krishna in her lap and pronounced: “HE is going to be your Dulha…”! Meera from then onwards never parted with that most sacred gift from her mother and she went on talking to everyone around about her marriage having already taken place with Sri Krishna! In fact, she carried the same idol in her pallu (saree frill) all through her wedding procession lasting seven days!
Meera identified herself with the ordinary class of people and did not like the palace luxuries, pomp and the paraphernalia associated with a princely life. She confined herself mostly in worshipping her “Giridhar Gopalji” in the mandir built for her. This infuriated the royal household – more so, her own brother-in-law Vikramaditya who had conspired once to get black cobra’s poison administered to her, which she drank most willingly but the poison, instead of killing her, turned out to be Amrit – nectar! This became an affront to the royal family and Meera was expelled from Chittorgarh, which immediately set the downfall of Chittorgarh. When Udai Singh became the king, there were several droughts and unfortunate incidents taken place in his kingdom. When he was informed that his brother got Meera expelled, he had deputed some brahmins to persuade her to return to the kingdom. Though she had resisted initially, she had agreed to return if only to avoid incurring the wrath of the brahmins and the sin for being the cause of their death, as they had threatened to fast until death, failing in their attempts to bring her back! At that time she was in Dwaraka, whose priest had also accompanied her to Chittorgarh. Strangely, on that day, when the priest had opened the door of Sri Dwarakaadheesh, he saw the normally small idol of Lord Sri Krishna appearing to be far too big! Such was the power of Sri Meera Bai’s devotion to the Lord!
Folklore says that her love for Krishna was epitomized by her final disappearance in the temple of Sri Krishna in Dwarka. She is believed to have entered the sanctum sanctorium of the temple in a state of singing ecstasy after which the sanctum doors are believed to have closed on their own! When they were later opened, the sari of Meera Bai was seen enwrapped around the idol of Lord Krishna, symbolizing the culmination of her union with her Lord!!

Near Vijay stambh is the Vishnu temple built by Maharana Kumbha in 1449. Excellent sculptures of incarnations of Vishnu and other Gods can be seen in the walls. A statue of holy bird Garuda can also be seen in front of the temple. The Meera temple is present within this complex.

When you go to visit Chittorgarh Fort, you see this Meerabai Temple. It was a temple used by a young widow who worshipped Lord Krishna. Meerabai is considered one of the greatest devotees of Lord Krishna. For her, every thing in this world was 'Lord Krishna'. It is a very small temple and it is built in very simple Indo-Aryan style.

If you are on path of Bhakti yoga, then add this place to your bucket list.
One can sit quietly in the temple meditating, visualising presence of Meera Bhai & her devotion towards her Lord Krishna.
The temple & it's surroundings are indeed maintained in its original state.
Meerabhai guru Ravidas's foot prints are can be seen next to the temple. The beauty of this place is the art done on the doom- one sees 1 human face & 5 bodies- but from any direction you will see 1 human body👌🙏.
we had privilege of having bhog, served to Lord Krishna as Prasad. We feel truly blessed.

A little out of the way, but worth every kilometer! Not overrun by tourists, free to enter and stunningly in tact. Make sure to also visit the temles on the other side of the river. If you're luckey and the river flows strongly, the waterfall is stunning.
