Mayapur, situated in Nadia District, West Bengal, stands adjacent to Nabadwip at the confluence of the Jalangi River and the Bhagirathi, a distributary of the Ganges, about 130 km north of Kolkata. Revered as a spiritual haven by followers of Gaudiya Vaishnavism, Mayapur is believed to be the birthplace of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. The locale hosts several Gaudiya Vaishnava organizations, including the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) headquarters.
A highlight of the Mayapur tour package from Kolkata is the Temple of Vedic Planetarium, crafted by ISKCON and renowned as the world’s largest temple.

This pilgrimage coincides with the Gaur Purnima Festival, celebrating the Appearance Day of Lord Chaitanya. Pilgrims from across the globe converge on Mayapur for this sacred Parikrama, immersing themselves in the joyous celebration of the Lord’s Divine Appearance Day.
