The Sanwaliaji Temple is a famous temple of lord Krishna. The temple is situated 40km from Chittorgarh at Udaipur-Chittorgarh highway in Mandaphia town.
The deity is also known as Shri Sanwaria Seth, behind the fact of dark complexion of lord Krishna. The legends have that in the year 1840, a milkman named Bholaram Gurjar dreamt of three divine statues buried under the ground in the Chapar Village of Bhadsoda-Bagund.When the villagers started digging the place, they found the three statues, exactly as Bholaram saw in his dream. They were the statues of LORD KRISHNA-all of them beautiful and mesmerizing. One of the statues was taken to Mandaphiya, one to Bhadsoda and the third remain at the very place where it was found.
All three locations became temples. Later on, the three temples of Sanwaliya Ji became renowned. Mandaphiya is now known as Shri Sanwaliya Dham (The residence of Lord Krishna) and is second to Shri Nathadwara to the followers of the Vaishnav.
