Rukmini Temple

Why?
  • Dates back to the 12th century.
  • Durvasa Muni, who was easily angered, was invited to dinner by Krishna and his wife, Rukmini.
  • Etiquette dictates that when a person is invited to dinner, the host should refrain from eating until the guest has been satisfied. However, while Durvasa was eating, Rukmini became thirsty.
  • While Rukmini was drinking the water, Durvasa turned that way and saw her drinking without seeking his permission. This made him angry.
  • He cursed her to live apart from Lord Krishna. That is the reason why Krishna's temple is in the city and hers is positioned outside the city.
  • This temple has beautiful carvings, particularly on the pillars of the 'Sabha Mandapa'.
