Dedicated to Lord Krishna, this temple in Ujjain was built in the early 19-century and is a fine example of Maratha architecture. The shrine is located in the heart of the city in a big bazaar and is a marble-spired structure with a 2-feet tall statue of Lord Krishna perched on a marble-inlaid altar with silver-plated gateways. The temple was built by Bayaji Shinde, wife of Maratha King Daulatrao Shinde. Besides, the temple also houses idols of Lord Shiva, Parvati, and Garuda. Janmashtami and Harihar Parva are the best time to visit the temple and witness the great pomp and enthusiasm of devotees in this temple complex. It is said that the doors of Gopal Mandir were stolen by Mahmud of Ghazni, and were later restored by Mahadji Shinde.
