About Shri Radha Madan Mohan Temple, Vrindavan

Shri Radha Madan Mohan Temple, is a Hindu temple located in Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh. This temple is one of the oldest and deeply worshiped temples of Vrindavan. The presiding deity of the temple is Bhagwan Madan Mohan, another name of Bhagwan Krishna who is present in the center platform of the temple with his consort Radha and gopi on both side of him. Facing the sacred Yamuna River, Shri Radha Madan Mohan Temple rises at a height of 50 feet near Kaliya Ghat. The title of the temple has a wonderful meaning where the name Madan indicates ‘Kamadev’ (god of love and desire), and Mohan stands for ‘One Who Charms’. Considerably fitting the name, the presiding divinity of the temple is Bhagwan Madan Mohan, one who can beguile Kamdev.

Legend

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.

History

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.
