Security around famous Govind Devji temple in Jaipur tightened for two-day Janmashtami festival
The famous Govind Devji temple in Jaipur has been decked up and security around the temple complex has been tightened to celebrate the joyous festival of Janmashtami on August 25 this year. Thousands of devotes are going to the temple for the first offering of worship and celebrate the birth anniversary of the deity.

At Govind Devji temple, the festival will be celebrated for two days and it becomes an attraction among pilgrims, residents and tourists. On August 25, Krishna Janmashtami festival and the next day Nandotsava will be celebrated on Navmi.

Keeping  in view a high turnover of the devotees and tourists, both the temple management and the district administration make elaborate arrangements for security and depute volunteers for crowd management. The festivities will begin at midnight in all the temples in the city as well as in houses.

Dedicated to Govind Dev ji or Lord Krishna, the temple is located in the City Palace Complex. It is considered one among the 7 temples of Thakur of Vrindavan. The image of the deity (murti) was brought from Vrindavan here by Raja Sawai Jai Singh II, the founder of Jaipur. It is believed that Lord Krishna's image in the temple looks exactly like Krishna's form during his incarnation on the Earth.

The temple subscribes for Bhakti Yoga and goes by Krishna's teaching which says: "Be aware of me always, adore me, make every act an offering to me,  and you shall come to me; this I (Krishna) promise, for you are dear to  me." The main tenet is that of complete surrender to the will of God and being devoted to Lord Krishna.
