Bihariji Temple

Hindu Temple in Jhunjhunu

A couple of hundred metres west of Jorawargarh fort is the Bihariji Temple, which dates from approximately 1776 and is dedicated to Krishna. It has some fine, though worn, murals. On the inside of the dome, Krishna and the gopis (milkmaids) are rendered in natural pigments – their circular dance, called the rasalila, suits the form of the dome and is a popular theme.
