Sri Giridharaji was the second son of Sri Govindaji. He was gifted with a very impressive personality. His charishma was widely spread in the world of Pushtimarga.
During his tenour, the troops of the Holkar’s and the Scindia’s were creating tumults. In this untimely crisis, Sri Giridharaji proved his wit. With the consent of Maharana Bhimsinhji of Udaipur, hs shifted Sri Nathaji and Sri Navanitapriyaji to Udaipur and after sometime to a much safer place amidst dense forest in Ghasiyar.Here a replica of the Nathdvara temple was built.
But here the climatic conditions were not favourable.So Sri Nathaji and Sri Navanitapriyaji were reshifted to Nathdvara.
Sri Giridharaji had three wives and six sons viz, Sri Srilalaji (v.s.1841), Sri Vitthalarayaji (v.s.1844), Sri Chimanalalaji (v.s.1851), Sri Damodaraji (v.s. 1853), Sri Gopinathaji (v.s. 1855) and Sri Natthuji ( v.s.1856).
Sri Giridharaji’s entire life was dedicated for the service of Sri Nathaji. He did many works for the upliftment for the society and the development of Nathdvara.
