Travel,Trains,Hotel & Dharamshala at Shrinathji Nathdwara

 NATHDWARA IS famous for the shrinathji temple of pushti marg.

This great Pushti Vaishnavite shrine was built in the 16th century on spot
exactly defined by the Lord himself. The Prakatya (appearance) of Shri Nathji
about 550 years ago Shri Nathji appeared on the GovardhanHill at Jatipura
village near Mathura/Vrindavan. Shri Nathji's raisedhand (left hand) appeared
from Govardhan Hill first, slowly after many years Shri Nathji's Mukharvind
(Face) was seen. Even before ShriNathji's Mukharvind was seen by saddu pandey
& Barjvasis of thesurrounding areas, the vrajvasis had begun to worship him
thinking that he was a Deva (Lord) and they use to serve milk to Shri Nathji .

These people served Shri Nathji's raised hand for 60 years.Later Shri Nathji
gave a vision to Shri Mahaprabhu Vallabhacharyaji to build a temple at
Jatipura. Shri Mahaprabhu Vallabhacharyaji came to Jatipura and had a temple
constructed for Shri Nathji , where he started the Sewa Paddhati (rules) of
doing sewa and shringar.According to the beliefs (bhavna) of Pushtimarg,
Shrine/deity of ShriNathji is a child form, only 7 years old. Shri Nathji's
right hand is kept on his waist while the left hand is held up in the air, (As
Govershan Dharan).

The legends (Shrine/deity) have it that the image of the Shrinathji (Child
Lord Krishna) was being transferred to safer place from Jatipura (Goverdhan
Hill) Near Mathura/Vrindaban to protect it from the destructive wrath of the
Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb.When the image reached a certain spot the bullock
carts wheel sank deep in the mud and refused to move further. The accompanying
priest realized that this was lord's chosen spot and the image did not want to
travel any further. Accordingly a Temple was built here The Haveli of
Shrinathji (as the temple is called), was once a part of Mewar State,which was
ruled by Sesodia Rajput rulers of Mewar.
