Madan Mohan Temple is associated with an engaging mythological story, this famous Hindu temple in Vrindavan is 5000 years old and it is also considered that the great-grandson of Bhagwan Krishna – Vajranabh, constructed this temple for the first time. However, it was in 1580 that this temple was reconstructed under the supervision of Sri Sanatana Goswami by Kapur Ram Das, a tradesman from Multan. As the territory was trespassed by Mughal emperor Aurangzeb in 1670, the real idol of Madan Mohan was covertly moved to Jaipur. When Aurangzeb invaded the spiritual city of Varanasi, the pinnacle of the temple was destroyed. Following, the early 19th century, as the old and dilapidated temple was found inadequate for worship, a new temple was constructed by Nand Kumar Bose. Now, this temple is home to imitations of the original deities.
The legend linked with Madan Mohan Temple, Bhagwan Krishna relaxed at the hill where the temple occupies today. After overcoming Kaliya Nag, Bhagwan Krishna arose from the waters of River Yamuna, thoroughly soaked and cold. To give Bhagwan Krishna warmth, 12 suns exhibited themselves on the hill. Nonetheless, as a consequence of the sweltering heat, Bhagwan Krishna began to perspire and consequently created a lake.
