Vaikunth By Adamo, Nathdwara
Location in Nathdwara

A quaint town situated in the heart of Aravallis, Nathdwara overlooks the banks of River Banas in Rajasthan. Barely 48 kilometers away from Udaipur, Nathdwara means ‘Gateway to Shrinathji’, when translated. A prominent pilgrimage site for the Vaishnavites, the city is home to an ancient temple of Lord Krishna. This temple has an idol of Shrinathji, the 7 year old infant incarnation of Lord Krishna. It is believed that the idol was originally worshipped at Mathura’s Jatipura. In the face of the growing adversities arising due to the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb’s crusade for Islam, the idol was transferred in 1672 to Agra (for 6 months) and then to Nathdwara. Legend has it that the shrine was built in the 17th century at the same spot as the one ordained by Shrinathji. If the popular public perception is to be believed, while the idol of Lord Krishna was being safely transported, the wheels of the bullock cart sank into the mud near Sihad. The priests who accompanied this idol thought that this spot was chosen by the Lord himself and the construction of a temple was commissioned under the patronage of Maharana Raj Singh of Mewar. The fact that the city has been associated with the Pushti Marg or the Shuddha Advaita founded by Vallabha Acharya has added to its popularity. In fact, it is due to the efforts of Vitthal Nathji, Vallabha Acharya’s son, that the practice of worshipping Shrinathji at Nathdwara was institutionalized.

This is one of the most revered and visited temples dedicated to Lord Krishna in India. Situated 42 km away, it is a day visit from Udaipur.

It was built to honour Lord Krishna, the Hindu deity. His idol has been carved using red stone. It was built by Maharana Raj Singh I in the year 1676.

Eklingji Temple (25 km from Udaipur) is dedicated to Lord Ekling (Shiva) and was founded by Acharya Viswaroopa, the contemporary of Adi Sankaracharya. There is another temple called Nathon Ka Mandir within the temple complex with inscriptions dating back to the 10th century CE. There are two more temples that are visited in Eklingji Sas Bahu Temple – built in the 10th century; this temple is dedicated to the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law and has intricate carvings, including some erotic figures. Adbudji Jain temple is a temple in ruins dating back to the 17th century and houses a black marble statue of Shanti Nath.

Also known as Maharana Pratap Museum, it is a reminiscent of the epic battle (Battle of Haldighati) between the Rajput bravado Maharana Pratap and the Mughal Emperor, Akbar. It is a reminder of how the Rajput ruler tried to protect his kingdom from the Mughal invasion.
