The Shri Govindajee Temple, which is situated adjacent to the royal palace, is one of Manipur's most popular tourist attractions. The golden twin-domed temple, which is devoted to Shri Govindajee but residences the idols of many other Hindu deities, such as Goddess Balabhadra, Lord Krishna, Lord Jagannath, Lord Balaram, Goddess Radha, and Goddess Subhadra, was constructed in the Nagara style of design and is committed to Shri Govindajee. The idol of the supreme lord is inscribed on the bark of a Jackfruit tree, which is a distinguishing trait of this temple. A pond may be seen on the temple grounds, which is known for its lofty location. It contains a concrete facsimile of Lord Krishna's footprints.
