Madana Mohana Temple

Madana Mohana Temple, built in AD 1580, is a 20 m elevated temple located on the Aditya Tila (a 50 ft high hill) in Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh.

One of the first temples built in the town, this beautiful shrine is dedicated to Lord Madana Mohan. The original deity of Madana Mohan, formerly known as Madana Gopala, was discovered by Advaita Acharyas.

Sub-deities worshipped are Radharani and Lalita, who were sent to Vrindavana by Purusottama Jena, the son of Maharaja Prataparudra.

Mangala Aarti (a ritual performed at 16:00 hrs) held here during the month of Kartika (October-November) is a prime attraction.

During summer, darshan is from 6:00 to 11:00 hrs and 17:00 to 21:30 hrs. In winter, darshan is from 7:00 to 12:00 hrs and 16:00 to 20:00 hrs.
