Overlooking the Hiran River, Gita Mandir is a small, rustic temple located on the spot where, according to legend, Lord Krishna took a rest after being hit by an arrow. The interior of the shrine boasts colorful paintings of Lord Krishna, as well as many idols adorned with garlands of fresh flowers.

  • Very peaceful, quiet and relaxing place. Recommended visit for all tourists.
  • Gita Mandir is located on the river banks of Hiran. It's very auspicious place for Hindus. As, lord Krishna left his body at this place & ascend to heaven. His brother Baldev cremated his body here.
