Krishnapur is located in the district Hoogly, not far away from the southern side of Saptagram, on the eastern banks of the Saraswati river. Krishnapur is the birthplace of Shri Raghunath das Goswami. It is still beautiful and peaceful. Even at the present, in every direction, as far as the eye can see, one sees tall stately banana groves.Raghunath dasa's father's name was Shri Govardhan das and his uncle's name was Shri Hiranya das. Both of them were employed by the king.Here in the temple are one pair of wooden shoes and a stone slab. Shri Raghunath das Goswami used to wear these wooden shoes and used to sit on this stone slab. In the back side is a long elegantly constructed stairway down to a little river where cows are often seen contentedly grazing. Hari Krishna!
