Typical, Clean and Impressive

Apart from the Ganga temple and Banke Bihari temple that seem to be popular among the locals, the Laxman temple is also one tourist attraction in Bharatpur. Both deities Ganga and Laxman ji are not known to command individual shrines. However, the temples in pink stone, typical of Rajasthan, were ornamental due to carvings, clean and impressive.
