Temple of devotion

This is one temple that we initially missed but had to go again and see. Not to be missed while visiting Chittaurgarh Fort. The devotion of Mirabai could be felt going inside the temple even though it was crowded in the afternoon.

My dark one has gone to an Alien Land

Meera Bai temple, which was constructed during Maharana Kumbha and it is situated in the Kumbha Shyam temple premise. Main Sanctum is having the image of Lord Krishna and Meera Bai with Musical Instrument in hand. Meera Bai was a great poetess and her poetry was dedicated to Lord Krishna. She was a Rajput princess daughter of Ratan Singh Rathore ruler of Kurki, and she was born in 1498 in Merta. During her childhood, her mother died and she was brought up by her Grandparents, she was educated in music, religion, politics and government. She married willingly to Bhoj Raj Crown Prince of Mewar son of Maharana Sangram Singh, as they died in the battle with Mughals. Vikram Singh succeeded the throne of Mewar and he tried to diminish Meera Bai, by sending snack in a flower basket and poison but nothing harmed according to the legend. Meera Bai popularized the practice of religion as devotion to God, rejecting caste hierarchies, which is symbolized in this temple by a statue signifies the truth that people from all castes can follow the path to reach the God. It has five human bodies merged together with a single head uniting all the five varnas or castes of people on their path towards God.The continued influence of Meera, in part, has been her message of freedom, her resolve and right to pursue her devotion to deity Krishna and her spiritual beliefs as she felt drawn to nevertheless her harassment. The architecture of the temple is also something to look for. The splendid architecture in Indo-Aryan Style of the temple is also one of the reasons for it being a famous temple in Chittorgarh. And the Temple is dedicated to Meera Bai a reformer and divine poetess as all her metric verses and compositions always centred on the Lord Krishna, like My Dark One has gone to an alien land. He has left me behind, he's never returned, he's never sent me a single word.This great attraction is close to Fateh Prakash Palace and 27 Deori Temple.

Serene place

It's a serene place on the fort. The dhun of Meerabai's poetry is continuously played in the temple at a soft volume. It makes you feel the presence of Meerabai praying the deity.
