An Old Temple with Indian architecture

The temple is known as Govind Dev Ji temple not as Govinda shown at Tripadvisor. The temple is made from Red Stone and is more than 500 years old. A nice masterpiece of Indian architecture of that time. The temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna known as Govind Dev ji. We found more tourist devotee than local people. Be aware of Monkeys so don't put your shoes any where but deposit at shoe ghar. A nice and must visit temple.
