If summer in India makes you stack into your home for the scorching heat then winter definitely makes you out of your nest. Winter is the season of tour & travels for the Indian.
Although we the Bengali just need an excuse of holiday, but sometime it becomes hard for us to manage time to travel. But this winter you can plan a short tour somewhere not so far from your place but yet can give your eyes a fresh view. In this present busy schedules if you manage two or three days you can easily give yourself a refreshing week end.
For this kind of trip the appeal of Mayapur is something that we the Kolkatan cannot deny. It can be a short, sweet and save money kind of tour.
Many of us have already visited the place; so what? It is not in our constitution that we cannot visit Mayapur more than once!
Mayapur has lots of places to visit including Iscon; the world famous spiritual place. Besides this place you can visit Advaita Bhavan, Gadadhara Angan, Sri Caitanya Gaudiya Matha, Srivasa Angan, Nimai Janmasthana or Sri Yogapitha and many more to count. You can get a fine view of Ganga too.
Into Iscon you can find Sri Sri Radha Madhava temple complex, Srila Prabhupada’s Pushpa Samadhi Mandir, Srila Prabhupada’s Bhajan Kutir, Goshala.
The main thing is that in the place you will find the complete peace of mind & soul which is rare in the modern hurried life of city like Kolkata. The sublime & holy ambience of the place can recharge you and pour some extra energy to you and make you prepared for the next battle of your daily life.
The place is not so far from the city so it will not take more than three days to visit that place.
You can avail bus train and private car or you can go for the Iscon Prabhupada Travels. In this service you will get taxi or bus services from Howrah or Airport to Mayapur.
