Srila Prabhupada Birth Place

Srila Prabhupada appeared on September 1, 1896, the next day to janmastami, in a little house in Tollygunge suburb of Kolkata. In accordance with Bengali tradtion, his mother had gone to the home of her parents for the delivery, and so it was that on the bank of the adi Ganga, a few miles from his father’s home, in a small two- room, mud-walled house with a tiled roof, underneath a jackfruit tree, Abhay Charan was born. This 200 year old tree is still existing. Also nearby is a 500 year old temple of Radha Madan Mohan which was the first temple visited by Srila Prabhupada.
