Amidst of all the chaos this , the Ghanshyam Ji Temple in Jodhpur is a personal and quaint sanctum. The temple has been built by Maharaja Ajit Singh in the 18th century. The idol, Ganshyam ji was brought to Jodhpur in the 16th century by a queen and then ruler,Rao Ganga. On the walls of the temple,descriptive pictures and scenes have been engraved . This gives it an appearance of Surya(Sun) temple although the deity enshired is Lord Krishna.

It’s a vibrant spot in the city. It is a hub of holi festivities where each street is laced with celebrations. Holi is celebrated here all around through out the month of phagun and the main celebration takes places on Rang Panchami that falls 5 days after holi. Unlike Lathmar Holi ,the holi here is peaceful . It is celebrated with flowers and colors. Clouds of Gulaal form as energetic kids rush around the sanctum. The sigh of holi leaves you mesmerized and awed by the vibrancy of festivals here in India. Later,the devotees of Krishna sing out their prayers to the lord. Further, flowers and colors are scattered around by the priests.
