Shri Gaura-Nityananda Mandir


This place is the site of Nandanacarya's house, the place in which Lord Chaitanya and Nityananda Prabhu met for the first time. The temple was established by a chief disciple of Jagad Guru Shrila Bhak-tisiddhanta Saraswati Goswami Prabhupada named Shrimad Bhakti Saranga Goswami Maharaj. He was very surrendered, an excellent writer and a wonderful speaker. He was also the publisher of the weekly magazine Sajjana Tosani, which was established by Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada. He was also one of the disciples sent West to preach the message of Mahaprabhu.After the disappearance of Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada, he established preaching centers in Vrindavan, Delhi, Jagannath Puri, Mayapur, and other places. When Lord Chaitanya revealed his manifest pastimes, at that time this place was a very beautiful garden. Nandanacarya built his house and performed his bhajan here. After travelling to all the holy places of India and re-enacting his pastimes as Balaram, Lord Nityananda Prabhu came to this place and hid Himself at Nandanacarya's house. Here, the very first meeting of Lord Chaitanya and Prabhu Nityananda took place, and when They both saw each other, They became unconscious. Without any hesita­tion let us fall into the dust and beg these two most merciful Lords for Their causeless mercy to bless us with Gaura prema. Gaura Premanandi! Haribol!
