Sri Krishna Temple Attached to Ambala Central Jail

The Sri Krishna Temple attached to Ambala Central Jail is an historic place. The temple attracts scores of devotees daily. However, many might not be aware that the Hindu Mahasabha kept the body of Naduram Godse who was hanged in the Ambala Central Jail here for five minutes. It was the last wish of Godse that his body be taken to the Sri Krishna Mandir. The body was then cremated at Rambhag in Ambala.

The temple is a small one. One wall of the shrine is attached to the Ambala Central Jail.

During Sri Krishna Janmashtami, thousands of people visit the shrine.

A major fair is held here during the period.
