Radha Gopinath is considered to be one among the oldest temple in vrindavan located at the bank of Yamuna Ji.
Vrajanabha, Lord Krishna's great-grandson, installed the original Gopinath Deity in Vrindavan over five-thousand years ago. About five-hundred years ago, Paramananda Bhattacharya discovered the Deity in the earth at Banshivat on the banks of the Yamuna. Madhu Pandit Goswami, a disciple of Shri Gadadhar Pandit close associate of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, worshiped the Gopinath Deity.
Once, Nityananda Prabhu’s wife Jahnava thakuranee came to Vrindavan. As she was having darshan of Shri Radha-Gopinath, she thought that the deity of Radhika was too small and that‚ if Radhika had been a little taller, the Couple would look much more beautiful. Jahnava thakurane returned to her residence after beholding the evening ceremony. That night, in a dream, Shri Gopinath asked Jahnava to arrange for a taller deity of Radhika. She received similar instructions from Radharani, and had a deity of Her made that was a more appropriate size for the deity of Gopinath. The book Bhakta-mala describes that at the time of Jahnava thakurane’s disappearance, she revealed her own deity and established herself in it. She instructed the priests to install the deity of her in the chamber of Shri Gopinath. When this deity arrived at the temple of Gopinath in Vrindavan, the priests hesitated to install her along side Shri Gopinatha. At that time, Gopinathje Himself instructed the priests, “Do not hesitate. This is My beloved Anang Manjaree. Place her on My left and Radhika on My right.” And so it came to be that Jahnava stands on Shri Gopinath’s left side and Radhika stands on His right. Jahnava thakuranee is seated on the left side of Gopinath, and Lalita Sakhé and a small deity of Radhika are seated on His right. Near the new temple to the east is the samadhi of Madhu Pandita.
Location:
Radha Gopinath is located at Parikrama Marg, Keshi Ghat, Vrindavan at the bank of Yamuna Ji.
