  • It is one of the oldest temple of Amber town. The best specimen of early 17th century Mahameru prasad. It consists of a Sanctum, Vestibule and Mandapa with Projecting screen window on either side the temple stands on a high ornate Adhisthana the three storeys Garbhagriha is crowned by Sikhara which is adorned with successive rows of urusringas and karansringas. The mandap is two storeyed with lateral transepts on either side. The walls of upper storey and ceiling bear painting the marble garuda-mandapa in front of the temple is intricately carved which is carrier of lord Vishnu.  At the entrance of the temple there is beautiful marble torna (pylon) which is flanked by statue of elephants. The toran is the marvelous piece of architecture. Jagat shiromani temple Priest Abhay sharma told us. That this toran was made from single piece of marble. And in this toran various gods idol image is intricately carved which looks very beautiful. This temple was built in Besar Style. In this temple has also god Vishnu in white marble There is an interesting story about this temple. It is said that the statue of Lord Krishna in this temple is same statue that Meera Bai used to worship in the state of mewar, 600 years ago. This statue was saved from destruction by rulers of Amer during Mughal war with Mewar state and brought safely to Amer. And statue was set in a temple. Even statue of Meera Bai has been set along with Lord Krishna.  Jagat shiromani temple is very important part of heritage, architecture and religious point of view. And you can feel peace here
  • The beautiful temple was constructed by Raja Jagat Kankawat, the mother of the goddess, and took it from 1599 to 1608 for nine years. The West-oriented temple is dedicated to the Hindu god Radha and Krishna, and the building has a Garuda umbrella, a marble pylon, a vestibule and a pavilion that are present on ornamental Jangh and VEDIBANDH. There are many pillars in this sacred pavilion which have been biancoed in various ways and domed ceilings are decorated with religious portraits.
