The Kanak valley formed by the Aravali ranges adjoins the town of Amber and stretches towards Jaipur. The hills and valleys are covered with Dhik and Kadamba trees. Traveling deeper into the valley one can see the waterfalls, lotus ponds and flowering plants. The entire forest seems to be on fire in summer when the flame of forest blooms. Migratory birds such as the Neel kanth, Kingfisher and the spotted dove are the frequent visitors here.
There are temples here standing for the three centuries. A garden known as the Kanak bagh and temples of Govind deoji and Natwarji are situated on the bank of a river Dharbawati, which used to flow through the city once upon a time. Today it has turned in to a lake and Mansagar. Holy water from several rivers was accumulated for the performance of Ashwamedh Yagna over here.
Sawai Jai singh named it Kana valley nearly 280 yrs ago, when Amber was his capital. The valley reminded him of Vrindavan and he installed an idol of Lord Krishna, Govind Deoji During religious festivals of Teej and Gangaur processions come to this place giving it religious importance.
