This small complex of buildings set in a garden has a legendary history. The faithful believes that this is where the seer Sandipani taught Lord Krishna, his brother Balram, and their friend Sudama. The place where the ashram, or hermitage, of Sandipani once stood is now a temple dedicated to the great teacher. He sits on an elevated platform facing the images of his three seated pupils. The central image is believed to be the only seated image of Krishna in the World.
The head priest who officiates in this complex is Rupam Vyas, the 202nd direct descendant of Guru Sandipani The priest assures visitors that Lord Krishna was a genius: he memorised the four Vedas in four days, and the other sixty essential books of instruction in just sixty more days. Facing the temple to Guru Sandipani is an old temple enshrining a shivling.
