“In Kali-Yuga, the potency of the holy abode of Sri Navadvipa-dhama ever increases. At the time when Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura was preaching, the primary marketing of the holy name was occuring at Surabhi Kunja, in Godrumadvipa, one of the nine islands of Navadvipa. Lord Nithyananda had also done marketing there. Across the Jalangi River, just in front of Bhaktivinod Thakura’s house, Srila Prabhupada established the world headquarters of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness: Sri Mayapur Candrodaya Mandir.
Srila Prabhupada quoted Bhaktivinoda Thakura, who had said that Navadvipa is the most sacred region in the universe, and added that within Navadvipa-dhama the Sri Mayapur Candrodaya Mandira is the most auspicious and important place, for it is Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s karma-sthana, His field of activity. Srila Prabhupada explained that Lord Caitanya’s karma-sthana is even more sacred and important than His birthplace.“HH Jayapataka Swami From the book: Sri Godruma Kalpatavi
