Mayapur - the Spiritual capital of the world

Description

Situated at the confluence of the River Ganga and Jalangi, Mayapur is the spiritual capital of the world with the Headquarters of the ISKCON temples being located here. It is believed that Lord Krishna’s incarnate Sri Chaitanya Mahabrabhu was born here in 1486 AD. Mayapur is one of the nine dhams of the 9 holy islands. The 9 islands together look like an eight petalled lotus flower and are called Navadwipa which was the earlier capital of West Bengal. The islands are centred around Antardvipa (Mayapur) and are a part of the Mayapur Township, Navadwipa is a famous temple town with 185 temples. It is a place where all beliefs, Shaiva, Vaishnava, and Buddhist converge and exist in harmony. The first temple established in Mayapur is the Chandrodaya Temple. The place is perfect for those looking forward to a spiritual retreat and is thronged by devotees from all across the world and many reside there permanently in search of eternal salvation.

ISKCON society was founded for the devotees of Lord Krishna, by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada in 1966, in New York, USA. You will be surprised to learn that ISCKON Mayapur is one of the 20 sacred places most visited in the whole world with almost 5 million visitors around the year.
