History
The story of Madan Mohan Temple is long but interesting. There was a merchant, named Ram Das Kapoor. He owned a ship, which was loaded with lots of goods and raw materials when it got marooned. This led him to a severe financial crisis. In that unfortunate period he prayed to Madan Mohan for help after been advised by Sanatana Goswami, who was a devotee of Shri Madan Mohan. God blessed him and his ship got rescued. After this he decided to contribute a huge amount of money for the construction of a temple in the name of Madan Mohan. The history of the Madan Mohan temple dates back to around 1580.
