The region of Vrindavan in Uttar Pradesh's Mathura district has its name etched in epics such as Mahabharata as Lord Krishna's playground. These places have witnessed countless miracles from the Lord's childhood that left the Daityas and Danavas in perpetual awe.

While Vrindavan's forest cover decreased to a few square kilometres, the location retains a spiritual air and a profound religious pull that draws millions from nearly every country even today. Vrindavan is a town of temples since there are temples dedicated to Lord Krishna in every nook and cranny of the city. More than 50 temples that we can name are notable for some sort of miracle.

#FunFacts: The most well-known is the Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir, the world's tallest temple; ISKCON temple, also known as Sri Krishna-Balarama Temple; Angrezon ka Mandir; and Madan Mohan Temple.

Madan Mohan temple is one of the most ancient temples in Vrindavan. During Aurangzeb's reign, people deported the original Lord Krishna statue to Karauli, Rajasthan.

History and Legend of the Radha Madan Mohan Temple

According to popular legend, the Shri Radha Madan Mohan temple in Vrindavan is 5000 years old. People formerly believed that Krishna's great-grandson, Vajranabh built the temple. When Advaita Acharya visited Vrindavan, he spotted the Madan Mohan deity at the root of an ancient banyan tree. He transferred the devotion of Madana Mohan to his student, Purusottama Chaube, who eventually passed the God to Sanatana Goswami.

#Trivia: The temple's principal deity is Lord Madan Mohan, another name for Hindu god Krishna. It is present at the temple's central altar with his consort Radha and Lalita gopi on either side.

According to historical records, a Multan businessman named Kapur Ram Das, under the supervision of Sri Sanatana Goswami, built this temple in the 15th or 16th century.

#FunFacts: King Jai Singh secretly transferred the original Madan Mohan statue to Jaipur overnight before Aurangzeb invaded the Vrindavan and Mathura temples. Later, King Gopal Singh relocated the deities to Karauli. Thus, the original deities are now housed at Karauli, Rajasthan's Madan Mohan shrine.

Madan Mohan's original deity resembles Krishna from the waist down. In the 18th century, people found a copy of Madan Mohan in Vrindavan's Madan Mohan shrine. Nand Kumar Basu constructed the temple at the foot of the hill near the Yamuna river in the 19th century.

Architecture of Radha Madan Mohan Temple

The temple is in the Nagara or North Indian architectural style, built on a stone platform in red sandstone with steps leading up to the main temple altar. Radha Madan Mohan Temple, located on the banks of the Yamuna River near Kaliya Ghat, stands 50 feet tall.

It is also one of Uttar Pradesh's most popular Goswami shrines. The intricate carving on every inch of the temple leaves all visitors mesmerized. Each of them chiseled by hand, it makes you keep staring and admiring it even more.

#Trivia: Nagara-style temples do not usually have fixed boundary walls or structured gateways. They are open from all sides.

Importance of the Radha Madan Mohan Temple

Every day, devotees serve ‘Anga Kadi,’ a famous and beloved dish of Lord Krishna here. Legend believes that saint Sanatana Gosvami cooked this meal to bring to Lord Krishna because he was a saint with nothing to offer. So he used to go to Mathura or the adjacent region to obtain gram and wheat flour. He used this to create ladoo, which he would then prepare and deliver as a gift to the Lord. Even now, devotees make the food in the same way to serve Madana Mohan.
