It’s one of the oldest temples in Vrindavan which commemorates the image of Lord Shiva in his gopi form and is Located in the Vamshi vat area. The Shiva Linga in the temple was established by Vajranabh (Grandson of Lord Krishna). It’s believed that Gopis used to worship Lord Shiva to get Lord Krishna as their husband thus the Linga in the temple is called Gopishwar or the supreme Lord who is the guardian of Gopis. It’s said that once during Sharad Purnima, Lord Shiva desired to witness the Rasa-lila pastime of Lord Krishna at Vamshi Vat. So, when he arrived at the place (Vamshi Vat) he was stopped at the entrance of the Rasa Mandala by some Gopis including Lalita and Vishakha who told him that only the Gopis could enter the Rasa mandala and enjoy the Rasa Lila with Lord Krishna. Knowing his great desire Vrinda Devi blessed him and told him to take a bath in Mansarovar Lake to take a form of Gopi so as to enter the Rasa- Mandala. Lord Shiva took a dip in Mansarovar Lake and acquired the form of gopi and then entered into Rasa Mandala where Lord Krishna welcomed him and offered him the Guardianship of the Gopis and the Rasa Mandala and thus named him Gopishwar. This is the only Shiva Linga whose image is dressed as a gopi (cowherd woman). There is an old Peepal tree within the temple courtyard which is believed to be Kalpavriksha and fulfill all the desires.
