A Pre-historic Pilgrimage Site, Galtaji’s Spring Flows From A Rock Shaped Like A Cow’s Head

Published on 29 July, 2016 at 11:35 pm By

Considered one of the jewels of Jaipur, Galtaji Temple is located 10 km away from Jaipur. It has a number of natural fresh water springs and seven holy ‘kunds’ (tanks). The temple is built in pink sandstone, and lying amid low hills, it looks more like a palace than a temple.

A pure water spring flows from a rock shaped like a cow’s head (called ‘gaumukh’) into the kunds. The Galta Monkey Temple is famous for the various tribes of monkeys that live there.

The Galtaji Temple was built in the 18th century by Diwan Rao Kriparam, an attendant to Sawai Jai Singh II at a pre-historic religious/spiritual site. Saint Galav is said to have spent a 100 years here in tapasya. Due to this, the gods blessed the place with abundant water.

The temple is located in the Aravali Hills. It has painted walls and rounded roofs and pillars. A dip here is believed to wash away all previous sins.
