The Shrinathji temple in Rajasthan’s Nathdwara is an important pilgrimage centre for Vaishnavites. The temple is dedicated to Shrinathji, an avatar of Lord Krishna. People who are devotees of Lord Krishna never miss a chance to visit this beautiful temple in Rajasthan. 

One of the most astonishing facts about this temple is that the idol of Shrinathji is believed to be Shri Krishna’s avatar, but legends say that the idol is a form of Radha-Krishna. This can be seen as the idol is decorated with sarees and jewels.
