Set in the heart of Bharatpur, Laxman Temple is one of the most prominent temples of the city. The temple was built by Naaga Baba, a sage who worked all his life for the upliftment of mankind. A number of devotees visit the temple every year to seek the blessings of Laxman, the brother of Lord Rama of Hindu epic Ramayana.
Believed to be 400 years old, the temple features Rajasthani style of architecture and is entirely built of sandstone and white marble. People from across the country visit the temple to witness the intricate and beautiful architecture of the temple.
There is another Laxman temple next to this 400 years old temple. The temple was set up by the founder of the city, Maharaja Baldev Singh. He wanted to win every battle that he fought. For fulfilling this desire, he constructed the Laxman temple in Bharatpur and prayed to Lord Laxman daily. The temple displays beautiful architecture which makes it a major tourist attraction of Bharatpur.
