Kanak Vrindavan is situated in the bottom of Nahargarh hills adjoining the exAmber Fort, on Jaipur-Amber Road. According to past records, the beautiful green valley was labeled as Kanak Vrindavan Valley by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh, almost 280-years ago.
The valley seemed like a mythological Vrindavan (Land of Lord Krishna) to the King, consequently he installed an idol of Shri Govind Deoji in the complex. The temples are closed 1 and 4 pm.
This place is on the way to the Amber Fort on Amber Rd, about 5km from downtown. To get here, you pass a large building in the middle of the lake and about 1km later you will see a sign for “Kanak Vrindavan and Govinda Deoji” on your right. There are two temples here. In the Radha Madhava Temple, to your right as you drive in, are Jayadeva Goswami’s original Deities. They were brought to Jaipur in 1560, almost 450 years ago. There is a 1.3 m (4 ft) tall, black marble Krishna and brass Radharani, as will as a small set of Radha Krishna Deities here.
In the 18th century Natwarji Temple are the Deities of Amarkuar, Jaya Singh’s sister. There is beautiful silver work (known as meena work, done with mirrors and colored glass based in silver or white metal) around the altar. Kanak Vrindavan Valley is an exotic place in the desert lands of Jaipur, Rajasthan.
