Nathdwara is a city in Rajasthan state of western India. It is located in the Aravalli hills[1], on the banks of the Banas River in Rajsamand District, just north of Udaipur. This holy town is famous for its temple of Krishna which houses the Shrinathji, a 12th century "infant" incarnation idol (murti) of Krishna. The idol was moved in the 17th century from Govardhan hill, near Mathura along holy river Yamuna, to protect it from the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb's campaign against Hindu worship in his empire. The Haveli of Shrinathji (as the temple is called), was once a royal palace of the Sesodia Rajput rulers of Mewar. However, the Holkar Marathas did what Aurangzeb could not do, and plundered the area and took booty from the temple in 1734, prompting the Rajputs to wake up to the Maratha threat.
