Lord Krishna's Abode Nestled beautifully amongst the Aravallis, Nathdwara is situated on the banks of the River Banas. The name "Nathdwara" can be attributed to the "Entrance of the Lord". This mesmerising town is surrounded by a wide range of ancient temples, truly looking like the threshold of Lord's abode. History of Nathdwara The history of Nathdwara can be traced back to 1665. Back in those times the idol of Shrinathji- which is a 14th century, 7 years old infant? incarnation of Lord Krishna, was originally seated in Vrindavan, Mathura. When Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb began philandering the city, the community heads decided that it was time to move the idol to a safer place to escape the wrath and destruction of the king. The idol stayed in Agra for around 6 months before it started travelling again. While travelling through Nathdwara, it is believed, that the bullock carts carrying Lord Krishna?s idol halted and refused to move any further. The priest saw this as a sign of Lord Krishna?s will to stay there. Hence, a temple was built there and gradually a township developed around the area, which later came to be known as Nathdwara- ?Gateway to Lord?s Abode?.
