Sri Godrumadwip, the third island of Sri Navadwip Dham, embodies the devotional mellow of kirtan, chanting the Holy Names of the Lord. It is on the eastern side of Ganges, and it extends from the southern side of the Jalangi river to Devapali. The local name for Godrumadwip is called Gadagachi. Previously in Dvapara yuga, on raised land by the banks of the Ganges river, was a holy banyan tree. There the surabhi cow and Indra, the king of the demigods, performed tapasya and worshiped Lord Gauranga under this tree at Surabhi Kunda.
