Navadvip (also Navadwip, Navadvipa or Nabadwipdham) is a city in Nadia district, West Bengal, India near to Kolkata. Its name means “9 islands” in the Bengali language. The islands are Antardwip , Simantadwip, Rudradwip, Madhyadwip, Godrumdwip, Ritudwip, Jahnudwip, Modadrumdwip, and Koladwip. The islands are centered on Antardvipa (Sri Mayapur). We traveled the way across exploring navadvip nadia in ferry which was a crowded experience yet joyful.
Sri Mayapur Iskcon kolkata is the spiritual world headquarters of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. We did 2 day trip to explore for you. A visit to Sri Mayapur was never on our mind while stay in Kolkata.
However when planning our way from Kolkata to Sri Mayapur, we discovered that the best way to get to Sri Mayapur was through booking service provided by ISKCON House (033 64588777, 32488041). We didn’t need to think twice about booking the tickets for 10 heads :).
