Temple runOne of the biggest draws of Karauli is the Kaila Devi Temple; located about 25 km from the main town, the temple is thronged by devotees all year round. March-April is when the Kaila Devi Chaitra Mela happens; the entire village is one big carnival with bustling markets, lots of singing and dancing. The Madan Mohanji temple in the premises of the Rawal Palace is frequented by people in the neighbouring towns. And then there’s the Mahavir Ji temple complex in Hindaun, which is considered among the most sacred pilgrimage sites.
