In the Kamar Pada Bazaar of Chinsurah in Kanchanan Tala there is a beautiful Deity of Shyamasundara. This is the family Deity of Shri Raghunath das Goswami. When the Muslims began committing atrocities in Saptagram, his father, Shri Govardhan Mazumdhar, brought this Deity here, which is still the Deity's current place of worship. Also in Chowmatha Chinsurah, close to the banks of the Ganges, the founder of the Shri Gaudiya Vedanta Samiti, Om Vishnu-pada 108 Shri Shrimad Shrila Bhaktiprajnana Keshava Goswami Maharaj, has established Shri Uddharan Gaudiya Math. This temple contains the original Deities of Shri Gaura Nityananda established by Shrivas Pandit in the early 1500s, and They still, even today, accept our humble service. First these Deities were being worshiped by Shrivas Pandit in Halishara. They were then brought to Chinsurah. Haribol!
