Few kilometers away from Chittorgarh, in the Udaipur-Chittorgarh highway, is situated an ancient temple dedicated to Lord Krishna, popularly known as Sanwariarji temple or Sanwaliya Seth Mandir. Darkness, has always been considered as something inferior or negative, may it dwell in a corner or on a skin. But very interestingly, Hinduism upholds a dark God, and takes pleasure in stories of his miraculous childhood and also in his potentials and might as an avatar of Vishnu, breathing long ago with the common people of our land. Krishna, is worshipped in different names, but the essence of love and devotion attached is the same. This particular temple also holds such an essence, in search of which many Krishna lovers arrive and pray to their heart’s content, asking, making wishes, or simply surrendering oneself to that divine grip unto which human soul finds a reason to live, a reason to serve. Guest houses are built in the campus of this temple where devotees stay and do ‘seva’, trying to compensate some sin or genuinely serving in the name of the Lord. Many people donate here for the upkeeping of the temple. But Krishna asks nothing but love, and so dearly accepts it, returns it, that you tend to coil and recoil in the web of love and harmony, and certainly shall find a fresh enthusiasm which will purify every bit of you.
