Mandir Shri Kalki ji, Sireh Deorhi Bazaar

Jaipur a heritage city holds many unique and world famous temples. Hidden in the alcoves and corners of the city, these ancient temples will take your breath away by their sheer architectural ingenuity and the calm that descends on you when you enter the shrine. Soul Connect allows you to locate these concealed pearls. Watch these sanctuaries wake up with reverential music and experience the joys of morning devotional music.

Classical vocalist Shri Ramesh Meval Ji, Shri Dinesh Khichi Ji on the tabla and Pandit Hari Har Sharan Bhatt Ji on sitar held the citizens of Jaipur spellbound and swaying as the morning breeze wafted gently through the Kalki ji temple compound. It seemed the clouds stood sentinel to the sounds of the ragas, floating by and then coming back, sometimes letting the sun have a peep. The program started with a Ganesh Vandana which was followed by the bhajans like ‘Dhayan Lagao Hari Ki’. The melodies composed by Surdas ji and Mira Bai made their way straight to the heart of the audience.

The only temple in the world with ‘Kalki’, the 10th avatar of Vishnu, as its deity which sets it apart from all the other temples. The audience marvelled at this gem of a temple hidden in the city.
