Jaipur, the pink city is full of tourist places, starting with Hawa Mahal to the massive forts and palaces. During my visit to Jaipur, on the way to Panna Meena Ka Kund, I found this primitive temple named- Jagat Shiromani or Meera Bai Temple. Hardly any tourists were sopping by here, maybe because people were not aware of this place.
How to reach Jagat Shiromani Temple
The temple has 2 entrances- the main entrance gate is accessed from the main road of Amer. The other gate is from the stairs of Amer fort which leads to the entrance of the temple courtyard.
Architecture and Design
The most striking feature of the temple is Marble Torans(pylon). The toran is an ornamental arch of gateway. It is said that these torans are made from a single piece of marble. The entrance is guided by two huge elephant idols
It is built using different types of stones- local, marble, and black stone. The architecture of the temple is enhanced due to the use of mixed stones. Temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna and it is believed that the temple has the same idol of Krishna which Meera used to worship in the state of Mewar 600 years ago
In a canopy adjoining the temple is the huge idol of Garuda, the carrier of Lord Vishnu. In the entire vicinty of temple, you will see the army of elephants, horses carved on the walls.
6 AM to 1 PM and 4PM to 8 PM daily.
