Mellock is a small village in Howrah district of West Bengal. The prime attraction of this village is the Madan Gopal Jiu temple. The temple was constructed by Mukunda Prasad Roychowdhury during 1651 A.D. It is a south facing aatchala style terracotta temple. It is one of the oldest religious structures in the district of Howrah and one of the largest aatchala temples of West Bengal. A statue of Garura gives some touches of Odisha architecture. Above the triple arched gateway the middle terracotta panel contains story of the demolition of demon Maricha by lord Rama the left panel contains images of goddess Lakshmi and Saraswati and finally the right panel contains sculpture of Ram and Lakshman. There are lots of lotus motifs scattered around the walls of the temple.

This temple is called as `The Temple of The Respected Lord`. `Mandangopal` is a combination of two words. `Madan` means `the lord of love` and `Gopal` which means `one who plays with the cowherds`.
