Jugal Kisore Temple

Jugal Kisore Temple is one of the oldest temples of Vrindavan, in Uttar Pradesh. The temple was constructed after Emperor Akbar's visit to Vrindavan in AD 1570. He gave permission to Gaudya Vaishnavas to build four temples; namely, Madana-mohana, Govindaji, Gopinatha and Jugal Kisore. The Jugal Kisore Temple was completed in AD 1627.

As the temple is situated next to Kesi Ghata, it is also called Kesi Ghata Temple.
