"Hari bol Prabhu ji and mataji.
Please accept my humble obeisances
I have come back to Australia after my trip to India.
It was a memorable trip just because of your guidance through your website.
Information about these special places was so detailed that I had absolutely no problem reaching them.
I think it was also because the glorification about these places was given so nicely that I had no choice left other than visiting them.
Whenever I told local people on Navadwip about my trips they were surprised as they had not been to some of these places even after staying there for long time.
I visited Kanupur in Orissa at shri Shyamanands samadhi which was very special followed by Kheer chora Gopinath.
Tamluk was on my way back from Puri .
And around Navadwip places like Katwa. Even the autodriver who took me to ShriKhanda and Bada Danga was amazed as he normally never been there with other visitors.
Denur was amazing as I got to see Chaitanya Bhagvat original manuscript .
And above all visit to Ramkeli was memorable.
Contact information given in website wherever possible along with places was specially helpful.
And visit to Khardah, Panihati, and Raghunath das Badi was possible when I realized they were not far from kolkata airport .
So practical advice to reach these places along with information about the places or treasures is to appreciated .
Lots of efforts has been made to make this guide for visiting devotees very handy.
Not just that I thank Prabhu ji for going over and beyond to guide me over phone when the website was not working for maintenance issue.
I sincerely thank both of you and pray to Guru and Gauranga to give you strength to keep doing the great work.
Truly Bengal is rich with culture, language and spirituality. This has been buried and forgotten, and many younger Bengalis have a lack of self-esteem and pride in their own culture...This website with its authentic information and beautiful appearance, with travel information too is wonderful and will go a long way in creating awareness and appreciation of this, the true heritage of India - her spiritual wisdom and God-consciousness beyond sectarianism! Haribol !
"This is completely phenomenal and wonderful ! With grateful heart i bow down to you Diptiman Gaurhari Prabhu and Diptimayi Visnhupriya Devi mataji ! We stay in Pune Maharashtra and have visited certain few places mentioned here. But so much elaborate description of all places of acaryas who were instrumental in Lord Gauranga's pastimes, its amazing ! Millions of thanks to both of you"
"...I am very thankful for your great work, for you both. So nice to read about
spiritual life, spiritual personalities and spiritual places in India..."
"Hare Krishna ! you guys are doing an awesome job !!"
"Wonderful dedication.....may Radhagovindadev shower His mercy upon you.."
"It's my pleasure to have such splendid experience by the effort that you have given to this website. As a reader, my expectation towards your effort will rise in future..."
"This page (Our Facebook Page which posts from this website) is a true jewel. I have always thought of visiting the places mentioned in CC and wasn't sure if they still existed or how to find them. This page answered all my doubts. My humble obeisances to the admin of this page for revealing these Gaudiya treasures to unfortunate people like me who are thousands of miles away from Gaudadesa"
"Dear Devotees thank you so much for showing us the beautiful places of Mahaprabhu lilas and of his parsadas, I think this page is the best showing pictures places, deities, history and Lore of Bengal all well documented and in a easy way, also some important remarks and how reach the places.Again thank you and I wait more beautiful Mahaprabhu places and pictures."
"Thanks a lot for guiding devotees of all around world through the gaudiya treasure of Bengal website. This is really a great work you have done. We now gaudiya devotees can read about all different places of our previous acharyas & places where Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu performed various pastimes. In this way the desire to offer pranaam at those places will certainly rise in their hearts which will invoke mercy of Sri Chaitanya mahaprabhu. So again thanks a lot for doing such a wonderful job."
"Very Informative. Never knew so much is hidden so close to my home.Much information is lost always in the passage of time, so i am glad some people are giving so much effort in cataloging and preserving this information.A must visit site for seekers. Good Job "
