Arulmigu Madana Gopala Swamy Temple - History

Madana Gopala Swamy temple was built in 16th century A.D. Legend says that Lord Siva worshipped and did penance in front of a Shivalinga which he installed. The amount of energy was too much for the living beings in the world, so to divert Lord Siva’s attention; Lord Vishnu played his flute and balanced the crisis.

In 1912, Mr. Adelian Peppergibson (Philadelphia-U.S, Socialite) visited Madana Gopala Swamy Temple, Madurai. In 1938, he built a Mandapam in the museum of Philadelphia, with the dilapidated stone pillars taken by him to his country from Madana Gopala Swamy temple.
