The place where Surabhi and Indra were performing gaura-bhajana is known as Surabhi-kunja. Presently there is a Gaudiya Matha temple at Surabhikunja and the deities are worshiped in a small house. Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura also stayed at this place for a few years. This temple is located on the bank of the Jalangi River. If you go from Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura’s Svananda-sukhada-kunja towards the boat ghat, this temple will be on your right about two hundred meters from Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura’s place. This place is non-different from Surabhivana in Vrindavana. It fulfils the desires of devotees and one who builds a cottage and worships here, will easily become absorbed in meditation on Gauranga Mahaprabhu’s lotus feet.

Darsana times: 9 a.m. – 12.30 p.m. and 4-8 p.m.

Directions: Go to Hulor Ghat by walking fifteen minutes down Bhaktisiddhanta Road, or by rickshaw from the ISKCON main gate. Take a boat across the Sarasvati River (Jalangi River). After getting off the boat, walk down the path until you reach the road. Rickshaw drivers will be there, or you can walk by turning left and proceeding down the road for approximately fifteen minutes. Soon after you make a sharp left turn on this road, you will see a signboard high up on a building on the left side saying, “Surabhi-kunja Gaudiya Matha.”

Presiding deities: Sri Sri Radha-Krishna are being worshiped here.
