Outside the main temple at Srivasa Angana you can see two small temples about 30 meters away, both within the same compound. The one on your left is Sri Advaita Bhavan.

The small temple marks the place where Sri Advaita lived, and houses the deity of Advaita Acarya sitting at the feet of Lord Caitanya. At this place he offered prayers imploring the Lord to descend. He would sit on the bank of the Ganga, worship salagrama-silas and beg Krishna to appear.

Sri Advaita Acarya taught his students Bhagavad-gita and Srimad-Bhagavatam at this place. Visvarupa, the elder brother of Visvambhara, was one of his pupils. At this time great Vaishnavas such as Srivasa Pandita, Haridasa Thakura, Candrasekhara, and Murari Gupta would come and hear Sri Advaita speak about Krishna. After Lord Caitanya accepted sannyasa, Advaita Acarya moved back to Santipura, where he was originally from.

Darsana times: 8.30-11.00 a.m. and 3.30-8.30 p.m.

Directions: You can see this temple from the courtyard of Srivasa Angana, thirty meters to the north.

Presiding deities: Lord Caitanya (standing) and Advaita Acarya (sitting and offering).
