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.
