Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur's Birthplace


Great vaishnava saint, Bhaktivinod Thakur, lived in Jagannatha Puri. As the regional governor he was also in charge of Jagannatha Temple. He was not only saint, but he could see more clearly motivation of people, which made him a very effective judge. British colonizers used to look at the managerial qualities of Indians with contempt, but Bhaktivinod won their recognition also in this regard. In few minutes he could finish the cases which others were unable to close in hours. In his house a son Bhimal Prasad was born, who later became famous all over India as Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati.

This place is located about 1 km from the Jagannath temple on the Grand road. There is a Gaudiya math temple here with Jagannath, Radha Krishna and Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur's Deities.
