History of Shrinathji Temple, Nathdwara

Shri Nathdwara (A Pathway to Lord Shri Krishna) literally means the gateway to the Lord Shrinathji. 

This great Vaishnavite shrine was built in the 17th century on spot exactly identified by the Lord himself. The legends have it that the idol of the Lord Krishna was being transferred to safer place from Vrindaban to protect it from the destructive wrath of the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. When the idol reached this spot, the wheels of bullock cart it was traveling in, sank axle deep in mud and refused to move further, at all. The accompanying priest realized that this was Lord's chosen spot and the Lord did not want to travel any further. Accordingly a Temple was built here. 

This is a temple and place of pilgrimage among its believers.

Jai Shri Krishna!
