Tourist Attractions in Nathdwara

Shrinathji Temple

This is a revered temple and a place of pilgrimage for the believers. Devotees throng the shrine in large number during the occasions of "Janamashtmi", the day of Lord Krishna's birth and other festivals like Holi. The priests treat the image like a living deity and tend to the lord with daily normal function like bathing, dressing, meals (called "prasad") and resting at regular intervals. The main attractions are the ‘Arties’ and the ‘Shringar’. The formal prayer is offered with ‘diyas’, incense sticks, flowers, fruits and other offerings with local instrumental and devotional music for the Lord according to the demand of time and occasion. The fine intricately woven ‘shaneels’ (velvet) and silk cloth with real original zari and shredded work done upon them along with real antique jewellery looks dazzling. The view of the idol after the ‘pardha’ (curtain) is removed is spectacular, rather mesmerizing compelling the waiting devotees to scramble for a view of the Lord. It is here that the mystic, spirited aura of India comes alive. Nathdwara has a small but throbbing township around the temple. Its shopping in the bye lanes is a great revelation. It's famous for its 'pichwani' paintings, with Lord Shri Krishna in the centre, where gold colour is used for profusely.
