The mystic temple dedicated to Lord Krishna. According to popular legend, the deity of Gopinath was found by King LangulaNarasimha Deva who was on a pilgrimage and was installed at Remuna by the King between 1238 AD and 1264 AD.The temple derives its name from the folklore that revered Saint Madhavendra Puri during his visit to the temple got enamored by the kheer (sweetend milk) served to the Lord and had the urge to taste it, but being a saint he reconciled. Lord Krishna appeared in the dream of the temple priest and said he had hidden a pot of kheer and ordered it to be served to his beloved devotee Saint Madhavendra Puri. The name KshirachoraGopinath (lord who stole the kheer) stuck and the temple came to be known as thus.
