Legend of shri Shyam Kaka Temple Rajgarh
According to folklore, local ruler Shyam Dev Khinchi’s wife Bhagali Devi fled the palace after falling out with him and sought refuge with Amara Singh Gurjar, a local chieftain.
When Shyam dev was killed in a battle, the queen directed the construction of the Lord Krishna temple in his honour, and Amara Singh Gurjar was selected as the shrine’s chief priest.
Since then, the Gurjars have claimed to be the temple priests.
