Padmavati Puskarini is not far from Nitai Kunda. Shrimati Padmavati devi, the mother of Nityananda Prabhu, came from a wealthy family, and her father had this kunda excavated and named in her honor. Previously there were four ghats situated around it: one ghat for the brahmanas, one ghat for the brahmana's wives and daughters, one for the twice-born ksatriyas and vaisyas, and one ghat for their wives and daughters. At that time, the kunda was very big and was filled with crystal clear water. Now due to disregard and lack of maintenance, this kunda is becoming dry.
