Sridam Mayapur – bird’s eye view of Śrila Prabhupāda Samadhi & Mother Ganga

If we take the path of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, then—we are embarrassed in so many ways—we can get the light. We can get the light. We can reform our life. Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu’s teaching is so nice. Of course, the great author Kavirāja Gosvāmī has depicted the activities and teachings of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu, and this Māyāpur is the birth site of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. Five hundred years…, 488 years ago, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu traveled on this street. Now, still, that memory is going to be revived by this Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement all over the world because Caitanya Mahāprabhu wanted this.

– Śrila Prabhupāda lecture on Caitanya Caritamrta Adilila Ch 7 Text 1 March 1, 1974 Sridham Mayapur

Situated in the confluence of Ganga and Jalangi rivers, blessed by all seasons of Mother Nature for the pleasure of the Supreme Lord Sri Krishna, the small village of Mayapur is the birth place of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is none other than Sri Krishna Himself who appeared to give us the easiest way for attaining spiritual perfection in this turbulent modern Age called Kali Yuga.

Mayapur is therefore naturally the spiritual international head quarters of the International society for Krishna Consciousness established by Śrila Prabhupāda to spread the philosophy of Lord Caitanya through out the world.

Śrila Prabhupāda has established an international community in Mayapur to explain the Vedic philosophy to the whole world in a way the people of this age can relate and apply in their life. He instructed his followers to build a huge temple to demonstrate the science of Krishna Consciousness to world. This magnificent project is already taking shape here in Mayapur and will be completed soon. To know more about this temple please visit

ISKCON Mayapur’s unique community is made of resident devotees coming from more than 90 countries of the world living here peacefully with their families along with the local devotees practicing Krishna Consciousness.

The very presence of such a diverse international community of ISKCON and this prestigious project naturally attracts many pilgrims, visitors and tourists from all over world.

Despite the large number of visitors, Mayapur has also managed to maintain its pristine nature and rich bio-diversity. A home for many varieties of fauna and flora, Mayapur is also blessed with fertile soil and strong agriculture.

ISKCON Mayapur has taken this unique opportunity to teach everyone the Krishna Conscious philosophy of “Simple Living and High Thinking”. A part of the practical exposition of that philosophy is our “Zero Waste Mayapur” project.
