Madana Gopala Temple

There is a temple with a deity of Sri Madana Gopala in Belpukur. In the book Sri  Navadvipa Dhama and Jagannatha Puri – A Practical Guide, it has been mentioned that

this deity of Sri Madana Gopala was established and worshiped by Nilambara Cakravarti Thakura, the father of Srimati Sacidevi. Nilambara Cakravarti is said to have moved from Srihatta(Sylhet) to this village sometime between 1475 and 1490. He came here with his wife and his daughter, Saci-devi. This village used to be right next to the Ganga, but is now about 6 km away.


Darsana times: 6 a.m.-12 p.m. and 4-7 p.m.

Directions: Proceed down Bhaktisiddhanta Road until you come to the main road to Calcutta. Instead of turning right in the direction of Krishnanagar and Calcutta, go straight ahead. Take the left turning at the corner of Dhubulia Batala where there is a large banyan tree. Then turn left next to a small market place and proceed for approximately one kilometer. On the left you will see the Belpukur Library, a white building in an open field. Behind this, to the left, is the Madana Gopala temple. This is the area of Belpukur. Presiding deity: This delightful deity of Madana Gopala was worshiped by Nilambara Cakravarti Thakura, the father of Saci-mata.
