He found this Deity at Advaita Vata, which is the place where he did his bhajana. This place is just below the hill on which the Madana-Mohan temple is located. He entrusted the worship of Madana-Mohan to his disciple, Purusottama Chaube, who then gave the Deity to Sanatana Gosvami.

Deity Moves to Jaipur
The original Madana-Mohan Deity was moved from Vrindavana to Jaipur, when the Mughal Emperor, Aurangzeb, had his soldiers attack Vrindavana in 1670. The original Deity of Madana-Mohan is said to exactly resemble Krishna from the waist down.
That Deity is now in Karoli, which is southeast of Jaipur in Rajasthan. The Deity was moved from Jaipur to Karoli, at the request of a Jaipur Princess, who had married a prince from Karoli. Raja Gopala Sinha (who reigned from 1725-1759) built a temple for Madana-Mohan in Karoli, after receiving the Deity from his brother in law, the king of Jaipur.
Each day “Anga Kadi” is offered to Madana-Mohan. Sanatana Gosvami would go to Mathura for begging. He used to get wheat flour and horse gram. He would mix the flour with water and make small balls, which he cooked. These balls were then offered to Madana-Mohan. Even now this food is offered to Madana-Mohan.
