A new temple was built near the old one as the military forces of Muslim ruler Aurangazeb desecrated the place during their raid centuries ago. There was no worship for some time. Fortunately the Govinda DevJi and other deities were taken to a safer place and hence they escaped the fury of the Muslim ruler. The original deities of Govinda were brought to Jaipur. The Pratibhu deities are considered to be the same as the originals. Before its destruction, the temple had a majestic seven story tower. now it has just two stories only. The Radha Govinda temple is still a wonderful place of veneration that underscores the ancient heritage of this place of reverence.

The pooja worship consists of 3 parts - every day ie Shringar, Rajbhog and Shayan. Shringar includes bath, dressing and adornment with jewelery like crown and necklaces; Rajbhog (feast) is offered in the forenoon; Shayan Sewa (Shayan means sleep) is offered in the evening. There is no Mangala Sewa in the morning as in other temples because Swami hari das wanted the divine idol to be treated like a child. yet another feature is the idol is behind the curtain frequently because the idol is so enchanting and graceful, a long stare is enough to lose one's self consciousness.
